Tony Blair Converts to the Catholic Church

by Steve Ray on December 22, 2007

The former Prime Minister of Great Britain and now Peace Envoy to the Middle East converted to the Catholic Church last night in Rome. You can read the whole story here. Now we hope that the grace of conversion will effect his views on abortion and other such troublesome matters.

UPDATE 1/2/08: First Things commentary on Blair's conversion here. Zenit's commentary and questions here — Blair's conversion raises eyebrows!

The Double Standard of a Critic

by Steve Ray on December 22, 2007

Dave Armstrong has posted a blog entry (and a new one here) explaining how one anti-Catholic operates as he criticizes Catholics. Interesting read! Guys like this really ought to fix the real holes in his own bucket before trying to find perceived holes in someone else's (Matt 7:3-5). An earlier post by Dave on the same topic can be read here.

In the meantime we are doing some very interesting research on the background of the quote in question.
