Tim Farron, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, has been getting hounded for over a week now regarding the issue of gay sexual intercourse, and if he believes it to be a sin in the context of his Christian faith.
I do think that a persons politics should remain separate from their faith as best possible and I have never heard Tim Farron use his faith to justify a political belief, well how could he and support the TORIES in the coalition, but he may have done and I’m not aware of it.
However, every time Theresa Mayhem opens her mouth she reminds us of her Christian values and is never questioned on this in relation to Tory policy of punishing and hounding the poor and vulnerable. Like the hounding of Jeremy Corbyn there is a real nasty right wing tinge over virtually all of the media now in that the government are free of challenge and everyone else is fair game.
If you saw the Andrew Marr interview with Jeremy Corbyn yesterday you would know what I mean, this was an attempt at a flogging not an unbiased interview and now Tim Farron is facing the same.
I am all for Liberal policy being ripped to shreds, and we all know Farron views on Scotland and his ignorance needs to be challenged, but no, the shock troops that masquerade as journalists are more interested in what he thinks about the sexual relationship of people who may be of the same sexy and in love, married , in a relationship, whatever it may be.
It is no wonder that this union is in such a mess when every journalist did their apprenticeship at the Daily Mail. Tim Farron deserves a fair hearing, we deserve a decent debate, without it we will slide more and more to the far right and we will truly live in a one party state where the government are never challenged.
