Because you're worth it....
The, ahem, 'devout' Mrs Blair
Martin Kelly points me in the direction of the the latest sage words from Cherie Booth QC, aka Mrs Tony Blair.
"Cherie Blair has criticised the Catholic Church’s position on contraception, suggesting it could be holding some women back from pursuing a successful career."
Oh dear. I'm sure the Holy Father is sitting in the Vatican as we speak thinking to himself: "She has a point. 2000 years of Christian teaching have been wrong, standing in the way of busy women and their careers. How on earth am I going to break it to the Faithful?"
"Speaking at a Sunday Times sponsored event at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, she said the Catholic Church was out of step with the needs of career women."
Oh Lordy, well we must sort that out that, then. Can't have the Catholic Church out step with career women, Where will it all end?
"Women of Jerusalem, weep not for me. Weep for the European Working Time Directive and the Equal Opportunites Act"
Oddly enough her husband is not the only Anglican to have converted to Catholicism. There was a more modest man who wrote the following words Mr and Mrs Blair might want to take to heart:
"And I hold in veneration for the sake of Him alone,
Holy Church as His creation, and Her teachings as His own"
As a feminist I'd have thought she'd understand that "No" means "No".
