Doing What Socialists Do

Britain Dragging Other Countries into Ethical and Moral Abyss

“There is virtually no area of pro-life or pro-family ethical concern which has not been made worse by the Blair government.

By Hilary White

LONDON, February 22, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The National Director of the UK’s Society for the Protection of Unborn Children in a February 16 interview with Zenit Catholic news agency, denounced Prime Minister Tony Blair and Labour party policies that, he said, “have plunged Britain into an ethical abyss.”

Smeaton told Zenit that among the first things Blair did when coming to power in 1997 was to implement a program of abortion and contraception for schoolgirls as young as 11 without parents' knowledge or consent.

Blair also brought forward discussion of laws surrounding end-of-life care that led to the 2005 Mental Capacity Act, set to come into force in April, that in some cases requires doctors to starve and dehydrate patients to death.
....
A sharp turnaround by Britain’s religious leadership, he said, is the only hope for the country. He decried the Catholic Church’s “lack of clear teaching on culture of life issues” that has left children undefended in schools.

The hope, he said, lies in the ability of Rome under the new Pontiff to appoint bishops who lead a turnaround and revive a morally serious public debate. With strong religious leadership lay-led organizations such as SPUC, will become more effective.
.....
Without it, Smeaton paints a bleak picture. With the legislation already passed such as the Mental Capacity Act, and the increasingly draconian laws regarding homosexuality, Smeaton said bluntly, “lay people who seek to defend life, marriage and the family may be imprisoned.”
Blair's wife claims to be Catholic though she mostly dabbles in new age occultism. Blair himself has had the audacity to present himself for communion. Which begs the question: Why don't these heretics, apostates and godless heathens stay the hell out of our churches? The question also goes to you Senators Kennedy and Kerry. You act as if the Roman Catholic Church was the only true church, outside of which there is no salvation......yeah wait.... that's an interesting idea!
