Tony Blair Quotes

One Quote by: Tony Blair of The Tony Blair Faith Foundation ex-Prime Minister of Great Britain and NI.

{Tony Blair has challenged the “entrenched” attitudes of the Pope on homosexuality, and argued} that it is time for him to “rethink” his views. {Speaking to the gay magazine Attitude, the former Prime Minister, himself now a Roman Catholic, said that} he wanted to urge religious figures everywhere to reinterpret their religious texts to see them as metaphorical, not literal, and suggested that in time this would make all religious groups accept gay people as equals. {Asked about the Pope’s stance, Mr Blair blamed generational differences and said} “We need an attitude of mind where rethinking and the concept of evolving attitudes becomes part of the discipline with which you approach your religious faith.”
