The leaders of the Church of England and the UK Catholic Church have issued a joint statement saying that they can’t see a moral case for war against Iraq. The Pope said something similar earlier this week.
Given that George Bush and Tony Blair both claim to be followers of the great sky pixie, you’d think that they’d agree with these religious leaders. But they seem to be able to ignore them with worrying about any adverse effects this might have on their chances of entering the pearly gates. So here’s a couple of questions that I’d like interviewers to ask both of them.
At what point do your duties as a christian outweigh your duties as a head of state?
Are you prepared to go to war even this will mean your soul will burn in hell for all eternity?
