He went on to say, "We admired his readiness to forgive his … [Read more...]

Readers of the Telegraph and the Mail are suprising in their … [Read more...]

UK Catholics attack Blair and get political on abortion- where are the evangelicals?

The UK Catholic church has officially welcomed Michael Howard's statement that he would support a reduction in the age beyond which abortion is allowed in the UK. BBC NEWS quotes Blair on the other hand as saying :"'However much I dislike the idea of abortion, you should not criminalise a woman who, in very difficult circumstances, makes that choice.'Obviously there is a time beyond which you can't have an abortion, and we have no plans to change that although the debate will continue.'I … [Read more...]
