Thats an appaling way to speak of someone's husband or father!
Pastor Jack actually studied at the free church college in edinburgh so get your facts right, the man had more dignity in his sermons than you have in your venomous rant, I had the pleasure to hear him preach on many occassions and he had nothing but compassion for people and love for what he regarded as truth.

The world needs more passionate people like Jack, you have the right to disagree with him but don't dehumanise yourself by doing it with indignity.

Did in fact Pastor Jack Glass follow in a long line of Glasgow characters.
If we,re honest, Jack was a religous version of Tommy Sheridan.
Older posters on here might even remember Guy Aldred, the Glasgow Anarchist.
Is just me or did Jack look like Matt McGinn.
Glasgow characters, how sadly they seem now to have all gone.

There is a great amount to be read about Pastor Jack Glass on the net. Of particular interest to me was that he founded his Zion Baptist Church after breaking away from the Bethany Hall - which I attended from being two years old. Although fire and brimstone sermons in our church were the norm; tempered with a swift dip in the Blood of The Lamb, our pastors were not quite as fervent as Jack Glass.
Had I had occasion to meet him I'm sure I would have fallen by the wayside a helluva lot sooner than I did ... more's the pity.

Billy Connelly's quip about him being "A wee pastor" was priceless. tongue.gif

Hi NC,

I am inclined to agree with you.

I am an Athiest so have no opinion of him other than he was a nutter and a character but in his own way, I think sincere.

I went to hear Guy Aldred speak somewhere in Bath Street circa 1960 and he became one of my Heros.

He had a wee publication called " The Word "

Anarchy is order springs to mind !! lol

This is is reply to the post from the Heavy Metal band Jack Glass

Hi there,

Its good that the pastors name is being kept alive via your band. I'm sure you've already thought of a tribute to the man e.g." Jumpin' Jack Glass" etc etc. Not so sure about the religious waffle!

I wish you and your band all the very best of success. My son is in a band - they play death metal, but they're splitting up later this year, after one album, and some critical acclaim. I know how tough it can be keeping it all together.

All the very best

I knew Guy Aldred slightly and and as a young man regularly bought "The Word" from the Strickland Press, his premises in George Street. That would also have been around 1960 - quite a long time ago. He was never a hero of mine but he was certainly worthy of the description a Glasgow "character" and it is my recollection that he had a razor sharp mind and quite an acerbic tongue.

Dylan probably heard Aldred speak in the Central Halls in Bath Street.

I,ll never forget one Saturday morning in the middle of the 1980s in the then, Shawlands Aracade.

Pastor Glass accompanied by his little band of followers was giving a wee sermon out the front about Jesus and such things to passing shoppers and right out the blue a wee Glesga drunk appeared from nowhere and shouted "FTP".
The full words, well you could have heard a pin drop.
All the passers by looked at Jack and then burst out laughing probably out of nerves more than anything else.
Jack closed the good book and left.

THH - this was my mistake not the bands. I saw a new post on the thread and I incorrectly thought their post was the last post - as it was at the bottom of the page. But I see now its at the bottom of page 1. I can confirm that no drink had been taken - it was just me being daft.

Regards

Ian

I saw Jack Glass once ,in the late seventies or early eighties, there was some sort of Irish Republican march on Victoria Rd, The march had left Queens Park main gate when Jack Glass marched out in front it, Bible and Union Flag aloft.

Firstly - the "rant" was in no way venomous - just honest criticism of a bigoted anti-catholic. I'm sorry but imo the guy had no place in the modern world - and as for "dignity" what is dignified in hating someone because of their religion?

Dignity? - don't talk nonsense - since when has sectarianism and religious intolerance been dignified?

I think Mr Glass committed the ultimate sin by ramming his doubtful beliefs down other peoples throats - how did he know that his views were the right ones? Sorry - but in my opinion - the world is a slightly more peaceful and tolerant place without him - or his extremist views.

i am 15, and very good friends with jack glass' daughter jayne, her husband david and there 7 children, josh, joel, abbi, jordana, joanna, johnny and beth, they are all lovely people, who believe in gods word, and look up to their grandfather as a great man, they have similar views to their grandfather, they dont hate anyone, as neither did jack glass, they just want to show the love and compassion of the lord to everyone and want people (such as roman catholics) to follow the true word of god so they can have eternal life and be in a loving relationship with the father, jack glass may have been very extreme, but he had an immense love for god which he wanted to spread throughout all people so they may know what love is. i have respect for all people and all religions but will always fight for my beliefs and love for god and that people may realise the true way.

Ach the auld pastor glass a watered doon version o Ian Paisley another bigot who hid his bigoted views under the sham o a man o god .

Hivnae looked at any posts in this thread and as i have sais afore am an atheist might be proved wrang wan day when the devil gies me a three prong jab up the erse an ses howdy son.

People like Glass an Paisley an the creeps like the Muslim Mullah's who preach hatred in the name o religion should be locked up in my estimation...


By the same token as an auld granfaither ,and faither my deepest sympathy's tae his family specally his gran weans who in my experience forge a very deep bond with there granweans.
