Tony Blair Rebukes Pope

A few centuries ago, this would have been cause for war. These Days, it just warrants mentioning on the Cheat Sheet: Tony Blair has told the Pope that he’s wrong on homosexuality, and that he should “rethink” his views. Blair, a Roman Catholic himself, told Attitude magazine “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.” Blair suggested that the Pope ask himself WWJD: “What people often forget about, for example, Jesus or, indeed, the Prophet Muhammad, is that their whole raison d’être was to change the way that people thought traditionally.”
