When Faith Meets Politics, Does Being A ‘Good Christian’ Matter?

In June 2017 we saw Tim Farron resign as leader of the U.K Liberal Democrat party as he admitted that it would be ‘impossible’ for him to be Liberal Democrat leader and ‘remain faithful to Christ’. Through the tenure of the campaign Mr Farron faced tough questions about his views on abortion after he previously claimed it was “wrong”.

When speaking to a Magazine in 2007, Mr Farron said: “Abortion is wrong’ further stating ‘Society has to climb down from the position that says there is nothing objectionable about abortion before a certain time”. When he was asked if gay sex was also a sin, he replied “we’re all sinners”, but later in the campaign after being forced to clarify his stance, he said that he did not believe it was a sin.

However the former U.K Liberal Democrat leader has now spoken of his regret. In an interview with Premier Christian Radio, Mr Farron admitted that he had misled the public while serving as party leader by claiming he did not believe gay sex to be sinful.

The ex-leader, an evangelical Christian, told the station he “regrets” making the comments: “I foolishly and wrongly attempted to push it away by giving an answer that frankly was not right.”
