From The Times April 8, 2009 Tony Blair tells the Pope: you're wrong on homosexuality
Ruth Gledhill, Religion Correspondent
Tony Blair has challenged the entrenched attitudes of the Pope on homosexuality, and argued that it is time for him to rethink his views.
Speaking to the gay magazine Attitude, the former Prime Minister, himself now a Roman Catholic, said that he wanted to urge religious figures everywhere to reinterpret their religious texts to see them as metaphorical, not literal, and suggested that in time this would make all religious groups accept gay people as equals.
Asked about the Popes stance, Mr Blair blamed generational differences and said: We need an attitude of mind where rethinking and the concept of evolving attitudes becomes part of the discipline with which you approach your religious faith.
The Pope, who is 82, remains firmly opposed to any relaxation of the Churchs traditional stance on homosexuality, contraception or any other area of human sexuality. He has described homosexuality as a tendency towards an intrinsic moral evil.

Is this enough for excommunication?
Hey, Pope Bennie-boy, we’d like you to rethink your views on Heaven, too. And while you’re at it, we have a little problem with that “sin” thing...
I guess that whole thing about idolotars, whoremongers, fornicators, and adulterers not inherting the kingdom of heaven was just a joke.
Tony Blair, you moron.
I dont think Tony Blair is near an authority on what the Pope shoud do about homosexuality.

Blair is more afraid of the bathhouse boys and the gay mafia, than his Lord?
Blair’s “conversion” was phony.
The priest who brought him into the Church was one of those priests who love to pal around with prominent people. Blair entered the Church without any public repudiation of his pro-abortion history. That alone makes his “conversion” fraudulent. No priest or bishop with any integrity would have allowed him to go through the motions of joining the Church without demanding such a public repudiation.
Blair can be counted on to give evidence for years to come that he has not really become a Catholic.

So Blair is just one more infiltrator to the Church in an attempt to undermine it from within. Just because he joined, all of a sudden he gets to set rules for the Church? I’d tell him to hit the road and wouldn’t care if the door hit him on the way out or not.
These are not the Pope’s ideas. They are God’s ideas.
Why not take a quick trip to the Throne Room of God and argue with him, Toni Blare.
The man has no concept of The Catholic Church.
(shaking head in disgust)
Hey Tony STFU!
Sadly, it seems Tony is a ‘Cafeteria Catholic’.
it’s bad enough he has allowed the savage death cult muslims to damn near completely take over his own country, now this. I can’t believe I used to support this gomer.
Tony, just go back to the Anglican church where you belong. They love homos.
