Tim Farron quits as Lib Dem leader as he faces witch-hunt for being a Christian in sad new Britain

Tim Farron was a pretty hopeless leader of the Lib Dems. His weasel words and demands for a second vote on Brexit were laughable and the way that he kept on insisting that he was the only working class ( pronounced with no r) was just plain cringe worthy. But the reason that he has quit as Lib Dem leader is that in modern Britain being a Christian is not acceptable, at least to the fake news wolf packs of the liberal metropolitan media.

Farron's faith is strong and for that I admire him. I have no faith but often wish that I did. Timmy is, because of his faith, unable to accept gay marriage and indeed homosexuality as morally neutral with a straight marriage and heterosexuality. It is his view and for that he was relentlessly persecuted in a way that de-railed his wider campaign.

And he knows it will happen again and again until the media gets their man. He has accepted the inevitable and quit. I wish him well.

I have no moral issue with homosexuality. The LGBT community should get exactly the same treatment as straight folks. If they want to get married why not? Why should they not suffer like the rest of us? But I understand that there will be those whose religious faith means they take a different view including, according to recent polls, more than 52% of British Muslims.

The liberal elites cannot bring themselves to say how appalling the views of most British Muslims are but Christians are a soft touch. Its not racist or a hate crime to bash a Christian. It never is. A cartoon of the bible being flushed down the toilet is art. The same cartoon with the Koran is a hate crime.

Sure ,the Metropolitan elites celebrate Christmas but not in a way that has anything to do with Jesus but purely as a consumerist spendfest and a chance to drink as much as possible. Indeed those of us who actually do link Jesus and Christmas are derided. My Islington dwelling daughter insists that Christmas has nothing to do with Jesus and her view, not mine which happens to be based on fact, dominates.

For the metropolitan sophisticates the power of prayer is denied, except that is when they are tweeting #prayforwhereverISIShasbeenbutcheringthisweek and even then they are not trying to talk to God they are just mouthing platitudes as part of an exercise in Group Think as if this will actually deal with the problem.

In such a climate poor Farron was obviously doomed. Already the liberal bien pensants on new media are tweeting en masse about how he should join the other current objects for communal hate-mongering, that is to say the DUP. I suppose that is what goes for humour if you are left wing.

Good luck Tim Farron you are better off without this nonsense.
