Tony Blair Chides Pope’s Attitude On Homosexuality

Wow! He’s only been a Catholic for a couple of years, and already he’s taking on the Pope. You go, Tony!

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 Pope’s 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.”
