If anyone wants to write a letter to explain why it would be very wong to appoint Mrs Cherie Blair as a member of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, they should send a comment to this blog TODAY and I will get back to them. BUT YOU MUST SEND ME YOUR FULL EMAIL ADDRESS OR I CANNOT REPLY TO YOU.
This matter is not trivial. Of course I know that Mrs B. cannot do much at the Academy and I daresay it already has members who are totally opposed to the teaching of the Church. But that is not the point. The point is that her status as an Academy member will be the best gift that Planned Parenthood has been given since she launched their condoms-for-teenagers campaign from the Prime Minister's official home at 10 Downing Street, the best boost for the Family Planning Association - Britain's premier group campaigning for abortion - since she visited their stand at the Labour Party conference , cut their celebration cake and posed for pictures brandishing a condom.
The Blairs will be leaving Downing Street soon. They are already planning their next careers. Mrs B. is an obvious successor to those who launched "Catholics for a Free Choice"....their campaign has run into the ground in recent years and needs a boost. If you want to help prevent this, contact me now.
