Tony Blair's Bioethical Legacy

On Friday, ZENIT reported an excellent interview with John Smeaton, Director of SPUC, in which he details the truly dreadful state of affairs in Britain with regard to pro-life issues. If anyone needed proof that hell will freeze over before Tony Blair becomes a Catholic, they could find it here...

...Damascus-Road conversion excepted, naturally... (God works in mysterious ways, his wonders to perform) - but it would have to be a pretty public conversion in order to avoid giving scandal to a great number of faithful Catholics.

And yes, giving scandal is a serious sin... Check out Matthew 18:6-7. (Need I point out that the Douay-Rheims translation appears to be the only one using the verb "to scandalise"?... other versions have the more boring "causing to sin" or "causing to fall"... which is probably why people forget that causing scandal is a sin in the first place!)

I can't link directly to the interview, but go to the Archives from the ZENIT Main Page - dated 16th February 2007, one of the two interviews on that day: "Tony Blair's Bioethical Legacy."

Oh, and yes, before you ask, I am the "Miss McLernon" John Smeaton refers to! Heheheh... I've made it on to ZENIT !

UPDATE: The direct link to the interview can be found HERE.
