Who thought they would ever see Tony Blair change?
Tony Blair who has been a closet Roman Catholic for years has finally 'come out'. The former Prime Minister has been to mass at Westminster Chapel for years but whenever asked about his faith, has kept quiet about it. He has in fact broken many of the fundamental tenets of Roman Catholicism including abortion and homosexuality.
In a private interview with In Seine News, Mr Blair said: "Religion and politics definitely didn't mix and he deliberately avoided any questions of his faith, whilst holding office, simply because there would be so many bigots on his back - too many to carry. It is hard enough carrying my own and perhaps helping Cherie with hers, but that is all I can do. I strongly believe that each man and woman should carry their own burden and be responsible for their own actions."
Mr Blair admitted: "What I did do when I was in office, I would certainly do again because I believe God told me to invade Iraq (NB God is not George Bush) - and when God tells you to do something, you just have to put on your NIKE trainers and 'just do it'. When I did those things I was an Anglican and must have been following the Anglican God who probably does things in an 'ever so slightly' different way than the Roman Catholic God. It is a bit like converting from Labour to Conservative."
"They say 'confession is good for the soul' and I am looking forward to 'fessing' up my sins. However, I may be a long time in the confessional booth and both the priest and I will have to prepared; by taking a flask of coffee, sandwiches and 2 rolls of toilet paper and a commode. It's easy to see why God made eternity!"he said.
