Mr Farron, a devout Christian who is married with four Children, has been criticised for failing to properly answer questions about his position on homosexuality in the past. But he has made clear he supports equal marriage and LGBT rights and says
“equality runs through me like a stick of rock”
Yesterday he told the Press Association: “I have never judged anybody, I am massively in favour of people being absolutely free to have the right to love who they love, be who they are, marry who they marry.
“As a liberal I believe in human rights, inequality for every single person and LGBT rights are absolutely central to those human rights I am massively passionate about.”
He went on: “I am a liberal to my fingertips and that especially applies to LGBT rights.”
