Former Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has admitted that he said that gay sex was not sinful to his mind just for the public to leave him alone about an issue on which he had been repeatedly challenged as evangelical Christian For weeks during the General Election campaign, Mr Farron evaded questions in interviews about whether he believed gay sex is sinful. Being repeatedly slammed for refusing to answer he finally said he did not. Mr Farron admitted that his statements to the BBC were not true. “There are things I said, including that, that I regret. There was a sense in which I felt, I’ve got to get this off my table. There was a General Election and all they wanted to do was talk about my Christian beliefs. I foolishly and wrongly attempted to push it away by giving an answer that frankly was not right,” Farron said, “I found myself in a situation, partly because of events beyond my control and partly because of things that were my fault, where I either had to be compromising my faith and say things that were not true – or be true to my faith, and be in a situation where I sucked all of the attention away from our main message.”
