British Politics: No Christians Welcome
Tim Farron resigned yesterday as leader of the Liberal Democrats, saying that it was “impossible” for him to lead the party while “living as a faithful Christian.” Farron voted in favor of homosexual “marriage” and was generally very private about his religion. Yet even then, his religious beliefs were deemed too extreme for British politics. Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has met frequently with terrorists, pushed a radical Marxist agenda, and accepted cash from Britain’s enemies. Before last week’s election, Corbyn was a pariah in his own party; now he is being embraced by left-wing politicians. Trumpet contributing editor Richard Palmer examines a Britain that considers a private Christian too extreme for the nation and welcomes a terrorist-sympathizing Communist. On today’s show, we also look at the tragic shooting in America and what it says about the divided state of the nation, as well as a possible banking crisis occurring in Spain.
