It further accused the Church of Scotland of “trampling over the Bible” over the vote and questioned “what exactly holds the Church of Scotland together?”
A Free Church of Scotland spokesman said: “It appears there is a growing division in the Church of Scotland between those who believe the Bible is basically an ancient relic and are happy to trample over its teaching, and those who believe it is the infallible word of God.
“This leads to the obvious question, what exactly holds the Church of Scotland together? Given recent developments, particularly new plans for Kirk clergy to officiate at gay weddings, the answer appears to be not much.
“Although we are saddened by the present circumstances in the Church of Scotland, we are happy to provide a home to those who wish to leave.”
Of the 46 Church of Scotland presbyteries an overwhelming majority of 32 voted for the ordination of ministers in same-sex relationships, with only 14 against.
The General Assembly will decide whether to pass the vote into church law next May.
Stuart Ryan, a member of the Church of Scotland in Renfrewshire, commented on the Free Church’s statement: “It seems strange that the Free Church should wish to define another church purely by what they claim it believes about gay ministers. Which leads you to question whether the Free Church stands for anything other than proclaiming itself as a refuge for disaffected homophobes.
“The bottom line is this is a church that tells me that my orientation makes me sinful. The Free Church seems so obsessed with gay people that I’m surprised they have any time for thinking about anything else.
“The way they’re cynically trying to play up division with our church and take advantage of the result of the recent vote is very unchristian. It’s the kind of things political parties do, not churches.
“The Church of Scotland isn’t perfect. The overture isn’t perfect. It’s stance on a lot of things isn’t perfect. But it stands for an awful lot more than continued discrimination on the basis of something that none of us can change.
“I’ve said before, where is the evidence that all these people are leaving the Church of Scotland? And why would the Free Church be tempting to anyone as a new home?”
Only two highland reverends have left the Kirk earlier this year and joined the Free Church of Scotland.
Some media outlets have suggested the Kirk is in “crisis” due to members leaving over the vote.
However, the Church of Scotland acting principal clerk George Whyte has previously stated that the Kirk is working to find replacements for vacant minister posts, with an upward recruitment trend of 14 new ministers this year alone.
According to the Kirk there are more ministers joining than leaving.
Meanwhile, support for equal marriage has reached a record high in Scotland, with well over two-thirds of Scots agreeing that same-sex couples should be allowed to tie the knot.
