Tony Blair Coverts to Catholicism

http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/thi...cle3278478.ece


I wish he had considered traditional Baptist views.

More inline with the scriptures methinks.


*it's why those people long ago boarded a boat and headed for the New World.

A great Catholic writer said that the only reason for moving from one Christian family to another was to deepen one's relationship with God.
I think this sums it up altogether. It doesn't matter which Church he chooses. Blair obviously wanted to join the one his wife and children were part of. Nothing wrong with that.

And I'd suggest agnosticism for consideration, but who really cares? It's his faith, and if he's happy with it and it's harming nobody, then good for him.

Speaking as a former Catholic, it is, of course, nothing short of a disgrace that this lying warmonger was allowed into the Catholic Church.

Which denomination doesn't claim this?

That's why I'll never consider myself a denomination, I'm not catholic, methodist, baptist, etc...
