Tony Blair Leaves Anglicanism!

In a not so stunning move, ex-prime minister Tony Blair joined the Catholic Church Friaday after months of speculation from secular and religious media alike. His joining the Church comes six months after leaving office, to which no Roman Catholic has held since its creation in the 18th century. Blair now joins the ranks of famous Brits, like J.R.R. Tolkien and Cardinal Newman, who have left the Anglican church for Catholicism.

That being said, Blair has been a contraversial leader, angering liberals for his staunch support of the war in Iraq while angering conservatives for his views on abortion (among other moral issues). Regardless of this, my prayers are with him as he enters the Church of Christ.
