Irreligious Politicians and a Taste of Hell

Cardinal Keith O'Brien


"Any recognition of the role played by faith and religion in society is to be welcomed. However, a tangible example by the government over the last decade that it acknowledged or endorsed religious values would also have been welcomed. Instead we have witnessed this government undertake a systematic and unrelenting attack on family values."


It is debatable whether religious leaders should comment on political and social affairs but should they stand aside and watch British society founder as it takes the road to ruin? The Cardinal expressed the hope that the Pope would " give Labour Hell"  during his visit to Britain. Labour has opened the gates of Hell to the British public during a decade of catastrophe, a decade of decadence brought on by the government's lack of care and responsibility and inaction in the face of mass immigration and deteriorating health care and urban decline. Further, the class divisions have widened between the rich and the poor while politicians and bankers have enriched themselves at the expense of the taxpayer. It will be interesting to hear whether the Pope has the courage to condemn.

I hear it's a religious AM who's going to have to buy up all the copies of the News of the World in the vain hope that his wife doesn't seem them. The Tories seem quite downcast!

It's sad that we are going to have to turn to the Tories to see if they can introduce some more decency and fairness to the UK, reduce the gap between rich and poor, and stop our pensioners dying of cold and hunger... Ironic really.

You are absolutely right, but in Wales you need to vote Plaid Cymru...
