The leader of Britain’s Liberal Democratic party has resigned after being pressured by party faithful over his Christian religion. Former Liberal Democratic leader Tim Farron ran an honourable campaign promising a second referendum on Brexit, something which many British people want.
However, what he did not expect was that a party of sexual libertine identity politics would chastise him for his Christian beliefs. It seems there’s no more tolerance in the modern western liberalism for the Christian faith.
In a statement, Mr. Farron said,
“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.
A better, wiser person may have been able to deal with this more successfully, to remain faithful to Christ while leading a political party in the current environment.
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”.
Of course, Mr. Farron may have resigned anyway due to a rather poor performance in the UK’s recent general election, but it is a true shame that Christophobia pushed a generally good man out of a job.
I personally wish Tim Farron the best for the future in spite of my strong disagreements with liberal ideology.
