Time for Tony to Go

Tony Blair has clearly overstayed his welcome. Now in the dying throes of his government he has announced he will force Catholic adoption agencies to assign children to homosexual couples. This is a mistake. The Church had earlier issued a letter to the PM explaining the need to allow Catholic agencies to comply with Church teaching.

Forcing Catholic agencies is a major issue in Britain, the libertarian Economist Magazine has already come out saying that so called equality rights should trump religious freedom. However, those who believe in liberty must understand that freedom of religion is the most fundamental human right; as it is eroded other freedoms quickly follow.

I don't believe this is over. For my part I'll be following the story at Catholic Convert, an excellent blog by a British Catholic.
