LABOUR leader Jeremy Corbyn was heckled by a Church of Scotland minister as he visited Glasgow on the campaign trail this morning. 

As Corbyn kicked off his 48-hour tour of target Scottish seats ahead of the December 12 election, Reverend Richard Cameron accused him of being a "terrorist sympathiser".

While Corbyn was being asked about the scarf he was wearing, which had been given to him by a charity, the minister shouted: “I thought you’d be wearing your Islamic Jihad scarf?”

In front of the gathered press, Cameron continued: “Do you think the man that’s going to be prime minister of this country should be a terrorist sympathiser?"

Corbyn, who was standing beside Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard, then moved inside the building he was standing in front of. 

As he walked away, Cameron shouted: “Who’s going to be the first terrorist invited to the House of Commons when you’re prime minister?

“Aye, he’s running away.”

A Church of Scotland spokesperson said: “The Church of Scotland as an organisation has a long history of engaging with politicians through a number of different channels.

“Whilst we may occasionally robustly challenge policy issues with which we disagree, we always intend to do that in a way that is polite and measured and allows for reasoned debate.”

Later tweets from an account connected to Cameron's Scotstoun Parish Church emerged in which Islam was called a "religion of violence".

Posts also called for the Archbishop of Canterbury to "ban gay priests", accused gay people of celebrating "perversion" and claimed homosexuality causes "harm by breaking sensibly held taboos".

Scottish Green MSP Ross Greer accused the minister of talking "bigoted nonsense".

He tweeted: "Bigoted nonsense directed at Corbyn today doesnt represent the @churchscotland. The bigoted tweets surfacing certainly don't. Do I wish the Kirk were robust in rejecting fringe figures like this guy? Yes. We must do so much better to say this isn't who we are & isn't acceptable."
