Tony Blair: Mention God and you're a 'nutter'
Tony Blair has sparked controversy by claiming that people who speak about their religious faith can be viewed by society as "nutters".

The former prime minister's comments came as he admitted for the first time that his faith was "hugely important" in influencing his decisions during his decade in power at Number 10, including going to war with Iraq in 2003.

Mr Blair complained that he had been unable to follow the example of US politicians, such as President George W. Bush, in being open about his faith because people in Britain regarded religion with suspicion. ...

Not true. The British Constitution only places a restriction on the monarchy, not the Prime Ministership. The reigning monarch must be a protestant as well as anyone in line for the throne. There is NO restriction for the PM. Disraeli, born to Jewish parents, was baptised as an Anglican at age 13 and remained one the rest of his life. His conversion had nothing to do with politics.

I guess the True God must be the one worshiped by the Reformed Baptist Church of Tijuana.

Jack Chick should produce a comic pointing this out.

Well, since The "god" of The Satanic-Vatican is The Sun-god "Baal" (ala his "eucharist"/disc/"host"/cookie worship); and Not The True God of The Authorized Holy Bible/Scripture(s): Then I suppose that makes Tony Blair a 'nutter'/'nuttier'/'nuttiest' with the rest of the spiritually lost & blinded over 1.1 Billion Roman "Catholics" on The Face of This Earth !

Very good, Lance, sometimes you come very close to the truth. However, I will disagree with you somewhat. The British voter believes in tradition. A Prime Minister can't be a Catholic or a Jew. This is why Disraeli converted from Judaism to Anglicanism. This was back in the 19th century.

We all know the problems with tradition don't we?

I do doubt that the British would vote for a Christian, no matter how competent he may be.

I find it pretty much the same in Canada. I think that a person, depending on the circles they are in, would be more accepted in Canada for smoking marijuana than for being a Christian. Many see Christians as "homophobic", anti-women's rights, anti-freedom of sexuality. Unfortunately the Anglican Church of Canada is changing all that, permitting sexual sins and promoting those who practice such into "ministry".
The Charter of Rights and freedoms gives me freedom of religion, freedom of thought and conscience, freedom of speech. Yet again those in opposition to Christ have the freedom to see me as a "nutter"!
Acts 16:37 But Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out.”
It is beneficial to know your rights as Paul, concerning the Law of the land.
Amen
trust, trust in the LORD, and in Him alone

Probably.

Not because the voters are Protestants, but because they don't believe in anything.

The former British Prime Minister has long been perceived by Protestants in this "Sceptred Isle" as a "closet Romanist". Indeed, there have, regrettably, been no real signs that he either is or ever has been a true disciple of Christ at all. Being an "Anglican" would imply that he freely accepted in Oxford the 39 Articles of Religion of that church and this would hardly seem to be the case as he led for 10 years what many consider to have been the most ungodly government of the United Kingdom since the Reformation. We are now being told that he regularly carried about a copy of the Holy Bible and read the same when away from home. Given that (unsurprisingly) he would now be contemplating "crossing the Tiber", it is manifestly evident to all that he did not understand either God's Word or Will. As he will, most probably, shortly be adhering to the doctrines of the "church" of Rome including the "anathemas" of the Council of Trent, "the Immaculate Conception", "the Assumption", etc., many thinking Britons are asking themselves whether Mr. Blair might believe in fairies as well! Whilst he may well have a religious "streak", it seems that his religion is very much of a D.I.Y. nature. Remembering that Christ died for the ungodly, let us remember Mr. Blair before the Throne of Grace.

I`am remembering the night when wee Tony (known as "smarmy") was being interviewed by Auntie & it got kind of personal.
When asked if he & G.W. Bush prayed together.I`ve never seen a politician squirm so much and the "NO" was eventually dragged / trailed out of him. I must admit I enjoyed that.
Although Tony didn't want to appear as a "nutter" He could never be mistaken for a Christian either.

they certainly view Mr Blair´s religion with suspicion - if he was sincere when he regularly attended mass and took communion in the RCC until he was told he musn´t why didn´t he join the RCC officialy ? Scared of the effect on the voters ?

And if he wasn´t sincere why did he act like that ? To please his wife ?

Either way he certainly seems to be a "nutter"
