Blair under fire for evoking God in Iraq war decision
From the moonbat socialist left and the anti-war crowd, Blair had the unmitigated gall to reference GOD, during a recent interview. The anti-theists are howling BLASPHAMY! and throwing their usual bile toward Blare. Except for the "religion of peace", Islam, the Socialists want no part of any other religion(s).....they only pray at the altar of big government.
LONDON (AFP) - Tony Blair triggered strong reactions from parents of soldiers killed in Iraq and the political opposition, after the British prime minister evoked God in his decision to go to war.And in typical Leftist fashion, the Blair statement is taken completely out of context:
Details emerged Friday of Blair's interview on an ITV1 television talk show where he said God and history would judge his action in joining the US-led invasion of
in March 2003. Iraq
"That decision has to be taken and has to be lived with, and in the end there is a judgment that -- well, I think if you have faith about these things then you realise that judgment is made by other people," Blair said in the interview with host Michael Parkinson which will air Saturday night.
Pressed to clarify what he meant, Blair, a devout Christian, replied: "If you believe in God, it's made by God as well."
Other Liberal Democrats agreed that God should not be part of the equation.
"It is a bizarre and shocking revelation that the prime minister claims to have been guided by the supernatural in this matter, especially given the particular religious sensitivities in the
Middle East," said Evan Harris, a Liberal Democrat member of parliament from the area, who is an honorary associate of the National Secular Society. Oxford
"We don't want Bush or Khomeini-type fundamentalism in our politics," he added.
Then questioning Blair, the BBC reporter threw the biggest slander he could think of at the evil God loving Blair:
During last year's election campaign, BBC interviewer Jeremy Paxman asked Blair if he prayed with Bush.
Looking decidedly uncomfortable, Blair replied: "No, Jeremy, we don't pray together."Gee, why would Tony be "decidely uncomfortable?
