On the other hand, while Tim Farron has every right to his religious views, however weird they may be, if he is standing for public office the electorate has every right to take his religious views into account when deciding how to vote.

It is also not true that when he abstained in the parliamentary vote on same-sex marriage "he was trying to get an amendment passed". What happened was that the amendments had failed, so he abstained on the third reading vote of the unamended bill. Nor had the amendments only concerned the spousal veto. Farron had voted to allow registrars to refuse to carry out same-sex marriages, if they had religious objections.

Frankly, I do not believe that Farron's voting record - on same-sex marriage or on abortion - has not been influenced in the past by his religious beliefs.
