    Christian Politician is Hounded from Office in UK

    Tim Farron has resigned as leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    Since taking up the role of Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Farron has faced an unceasing barrage of questions about his personal religious beliefs.
    This culminated in Lord Paddick's resignation as the Liberal Democrats' home affairs spokesman, citing concerns about leader Tim Farron's "views on various issues", an allusion to Farron's alleged views on homosexuality.

    Asked several times during the campaign whether he believed gay sex was a sin, having previously told Channel 4 News “we’re all sinners”, Farron repeatedly said he was not prepared to make theological pronouncements, before insisting he did not believe it was a sin and that he was pro-life.
    Tendering his resignation Farron said “I seem to be the subject of suspicion because of what I believe and who my faith is in. “In which case we are kidding ourselves if we think we yet live in a tolerant, liberal society. That’s why I have chosen to step down.."

    The question is simple - is there an equal place for Christians in politics?

    Where do you stand on the demonisation of the DUP because of some of their politicians' religious beliefs?

    No Christian could join a party that once had one of the worlds biggest war criminals as it's leader. Lloyd George sent over the murderous Black and Tans.

    Also he was responsible for the murder of the democratically elected mayor of Cork. Despite excluding Catholics from the jury the local Protestants found him guilty.

    Following the Lord Mayor's death, the threatening letter was cited by the British Government "to suggest that there was an internal feud among the republicans". Meanwhile, Michael Collins called the assassination a "ghastly affair" and vowed to identify those responsible.[88]

    Meanwhile, a coroner's inquest returned a verdict of willful murder against Lloyd George, Lord French, the Chief Secretary for Ireland, and several officials of the RIC. The reading of the verdict was greeted with applause.[87]

    Shows how out of touch Britain is with Northern Ireland.

    Maybe I can reply if you fill out your question a little ... keeping it in the context of this thread, naturally.

    Why do you as a militant "Social Liberal" support the DUP? Answer that and you have your answer.

    It's wrong, and not only that but the criticism is wholly irrelevant and is just another exercise in pseudo-liberalism from the media. The issues about which they are being attacked, SSM and abortion, are devolved issues.

    It would be very possible in a united Ireland that the DUP could make Fianna Fail recover it's soul and FF could school the DUP in civilized ethics. Something that also needs to be considered is that getting rid of the 8 th in the South would make moves to a united Ireland much more ugly and violent.

    Just shows what a sick society over there the so called 'Liberal' agenda has produced

    - that even the leader of a Liberal Party is hounded from Office

    - because of his Christian beliefs....
