fighting talk from the catholic church i didnt expect godwins law to extend to the real world and the vatican. Trying to link atheism to the nazis is
a bit out of order.
I dont know where the popes been but britains never been an overtly religous nation faith has always been a private matter. Unlike America If
politicians here went on about God all the time they would get nowhere near office. I suspect if the nation knew how religous blair was he might not
have made it to being PM.
Pope criticizes britain for being too secular. Sorry your holyness thats the way we like it.
About blairs conversion the reason he didnt do it before he left office is that in non-roman catholic countries , catholic politicians were
traditionally viewed with suspicion becuase its perceived they take their orders from the vatican not from the electorate. That view isnt helped by
the church, John kerry was threatened with the withdrawal of mass by americas top catholic for his pro- choice abortion views.
