Farron is entitled to his views on gay sex - whatever they may be. Assuming he does not indulge in hate speech, he is entitled to express himself openly, to campaign and build support for his vision.

Once again, Europe has been placed at the mercy of terrorists. Innocent people are dead and injured and others will forever be haunted by the carnage they witnessed. But the wider impact of the terror attack in central London on Wednesday night is only starting to emerge.

The shocking, sickening scene of a young man nailed to a wooden cross, surrounded by his executioners, shouting abuse and laughing whilst crowds of others watch in horrified silence, is an image that is indelibly stamped onto the minds of all Christians.
I know, I know, the best way to treat attention-seeking people like Britain First is to ignore them. Don't give them and their disgraceful campaign any oxygen and hopefully they'll eventually go away. But when something that is deeply important to me is being so monumentally misused, I can't keep it zipped any more.
Muslim scholars gathered at the summit made it clear that religious minorities living in Muslim countries must enjoy safety and security, granted by Islam, unconditionally. Conflicts, tensions and divisions amongst faiths feeding animosity must be resolved through mediation, diplomacy, and dialogue. The Charter of Medina provides an exemplary foundation for peaceful co-existence between diverse communities.
