Pope catechises Blair



Pope: "No, that was not the correct answer to the first question. It was God, not not the spin doctors who made you."

Pope: "Question 2: Why did God make you?"

Readers are asked to answer this on behalf of Mr Anthony Blair

Blair held talks with Pope Benedict XVI, with the Vatican stop on his farewell tour fueling rumors that he plans to convert to Catholicism. The two men met privately for 25 minutes and then were joined for further talks by English Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor.
A Vatican press office called the audience a normal meeting between the pope and a government leader. Blair leaves office on Wednesday.
The statement, issued after the talks with Benedict and a separate meeting with Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, said there was a "frank" assessment of the international situation, including such "delicate" themes as the Middle East conflict and the future of the European Union

Question 3:

The Pope: Name two of the four sins crying to heaven for vengeance.

Blair: Wilful murder and the sin of Sodom.

The Pope: Correct! What is the connection (Alarm: Beep! Beep! Beep!) I've started, so I'll finish. What is the connection between these two sins and: (a) abortion; (b) civil partnerships for homosexuals?

Blair: Pass.

The Pope: No, fail! You're fired!

"how interface"?
What does that mean?
Why dis God make him?
Certainly not to spin,and lie, and conspire with Bush to invade Iraq with such ineptitude that nothing but havoc and chaos are brought about.

Blair: Y'know, I've been savaged by Jeremy Paxman a few times, but when I came here I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition.

The Pope: No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!

Nice. Thanks for that, Lord Snooty.

wow, how connected, how inteface, how cool

Well, yes that is the general idea of the internet, to, you know, connect people who can exchange thoughts and opinions and sometimes, invective.

I am a mere man

He's the Prime Minster, for heaven's sake - an elected representative. If he couldn't take a joke he shouldn't have joined.

Even amateur exegesis of the Genesis story reveals that the 'sin of Sodom' refers to the breaking of the laws of hospitality, not buggery. I wonder why catholics are so obsessed by the bedroom habits of homosexuals.

"I wonder why catholics are so obsessed by the bedroom habits of homosexuals."
St Paul talks of some sins should not even be mentioned, those are the sterile acts of homosexuality. Catholics are concerned about sexual activity because it pertains to the family, the family is central to society.

Nice name.

Maybe some of us should call ourselves:
Fed-up with the Heretical
Fed-up with the Dissenters
Fed-up with people being encouraged in sin
Fed-up with the Doctrinal Cherry-pickers

You don't have a monopoly on righteous anger
