Mrs Blair also revealed that every time she did not use contraception, “I seemed to have a baby” in a discussion about the Church’s attitude to birth control and abortion.
She said: “How could I have done all the things I have done if I hadn’t used contraception?”
Yeah, how could she have raised money for Planned Parenthood and all of her other efforts for the culture of death if she didn’t use contraception? We are not wonderfully made you know after all. God didn’t include a fertility off/off switch on our foreheads. Gee didn’t our creator know about careers? You can read all throughout scripture where people brag about careers and not their children. Raising up children for the Kingdom of Heaven just does not compare to a career. All of those executives when they get older lament that they did not spend more time at work instead of their family. Carl Olson has a nice quip to add
Indeed, how could she go about telling people what the Church must do to survive and grow if she hadn’t been busy ignoring the teachings of the same Church? Whatever the intentions, the logic is sterile, although apparently not purposely so.
Cherie Blair also managed to express some other silliness.
The Catholic Church is losing congregations by alienating women and failing to give them a public role, Cherie Blair said last night.
Church leaders must modernise the role of women in order to halt the decline in church attendance, she said. Mrs Blair, herself a Catholic, said: “One of the fundamental weaknesses of modern Christianity is its ambivalence to women, and particularly for Catholicism.
“Until the traditional churches fully resolve their relationship with the female half of the population, how can they expect Christianity to have a future in the modern world?
“Traditionally, it was women who passed religion on to their children and who kept the Church going through good times and bad, but when it comes to the public face of Christianity, women are virtually invisible.
You have to wonder if she has ever been to daily Mass or attended any groups meeting in a church where women are the large majority of people involved. There have been plenty of articles out there complaining about the lack of men being involved in a parish – but for Mrs. Blair facts don’t matter when it comes to feminist gripes. I guess Blessed Mother Teresa was not part of the “public face of Christianity” or the fact that Catholic churches are filled with the examples of great women saints. I guess she must of got tired of saying all those “Hail Joseph’s” – oh wait.
