Britain is no longer a liberal country

Tim Farron resigned this week as leader of the Liberal Democratic Party for a shocking reason. He was hounded from office because he held traditional Christian views.

“The consequences of the focus on my faith is that I have found myself torn between living as a faithful Christian and serving as a political leader,” he said. “To be a leader, particularly of a progressive liberal party in 2017 and to live as a committed Christian and to hold faithful to the Bible’s teaching has felt impossible for me.”

In media interviews during the election campaign, Farron was repeatedly challenged about his views on homosexuality.

Despite having initially voted for legalising same-sex marriage, he abstained at the third reading of the bill. He then said this didn’t mean he opposed same-sex marriage. Subsequently asked whether he believed gay sex was a sin, he repeatedly ducked the question before eventually saying he didn’t believe it was.

Forlornly, he tried to insist that a proper distinction should be drawn between the position he took on public policy and his personal religious beliefs. Now he has concluded he decided he cannot maintain such a distinction after all.
