"Foolishly and wrongly, [I] attempted to push it away by giving an answer that, frankly, was not right."

Former Lib Dem leader Tim Farron has admitted on Premier Christian Radio that he misled the public when he said he didn’t think gay sex is a sin. The Lib Dems' 2017 election campaign was dogged by questions over Farron’s attitude to homosexuality, as he dodged questions about it for weeks.

Far too late in the game he gave up and started saying he doesn’t think it’s a sin, which didn’t really ring true at the time. Also – isn’t lying a sin?
