(Premier)— Former leader of the Liberal Democrats, Tim Farron has spoken of his “regret” at bowing to pressure he felt to say homosexual sex is not sinful.
The Christian politician also voiced frustration that his views on sexuality distracted attention away from the Lib Dem’s General Election campaigning last year.
Speaking exclusively with Premier’s Inspirational Breakfast presenters John Pantry and Rosie Wright, he said: “The bottom line is, of course, I did [feel pressured] and there are things—including that—that I said that I regret.
“All they wanted to do is talk about my Christian beliefs and what they actually meant,” he stated. “Foolishly and wrongly, [I] attempted to push it away by giving an answer that, frankly, was not right.”
