Default Re: UK election

The controversy was that his religion considered homosexual sex a sin. His position was that Christianity considers lots of things a sin, and it wasn't right to dictate that people follow his religion.

His voting record on LGBT matters was good.

In his letter, he resigns because of the 'suspicion' the public and media seem to have over his liberal principles, because of his faith.

I find myself siding with Farron on this one. He's right to resign, but only because people seem unable to believe someone can seperate their religious views from their policy making.
