I know this isn’t a perfect image as it depicts Mrs May as a zombie rather than something satanic, but the message about her personal character is clear enough [Art: Dave Brown].

Tim Farron has announced he is to quit as Liberal Democrat leader because he cannot reconcile his religious beliefs with a life in politics. But Theresa May – who also self-identifies as religious, even though her behaviour is satanic – is still prime minister. Contradiction?

Well, yes.

But then, Mr Farron came under a lot of criticism for his views against homosexuality during the election campaign, and his responses ultimately led to the resignation of Lib Dem peer Brian Paddick, who is gay, as the party’s home affairs spokesman.

Mrs May faced no criticism whatsoever from the mainstream media over the discrepancy between her claim to be deeply religious and her activities as prime minister.

A topical example of this is the fact that she pared the emergency services down to the bone during her time as home secretary and prime minister, while her housing ministers sat on reports warning about unsafe building practices, creating the situation that led to the Grenfell Tower conflagration.

In This Writer’s opinion, Mr Farron’s beliefs about homosexuality have very little to do with the Bible and much more to do with his own prejudices.

He knew he had to go because the prevailing mood is not bigoted in the same way.

On the other hand, Mrs May can continue persecuting people with her own prejudicial policies because most of the Conservative Party – if not all, in some cases – hold the same views.

One has gone and the other is still plaguing us – not because one is more correct in the way they practise religion than the other, but because of the way it is interpreted by their different social groups.

Or do you believe otherwise?
