The former Liberal Democract leader’s retraction simply makes matters worse
Tim Farron has said that he now regrets saying that gay sex wasn’t a sin, when he was Liberal Democrat leader during the last general election campaign. Speaking to Premier Christian Radio, Farron, an evangelical Christian, said that he’d felt pressured to make the statement.
Vince Cable and other Liberal Democrats have since criticised Farron, while gay activists asked why he was allowed to return to the Lib Dem frontbench. Farron has become an embarrassment, not just to LGBT people, but to his party and modern-thinking Christians.
