The recognition of the Church of Scotland that "the report ... has given cause for concern" - and the good faith they have shown by immediately removing it from their website pending revision - are both very welcome.
However the real test will be whether the revision is unobjectionable. In particular it will not be acceptable if the revision consists solely of an additional preamble, leaving the remainder of the document unchanged.
Well done to the Board of Deputies and The Scottish Council of Jewish Communities for persuading the Church of Scotland to revise this objectionable document.
