Cherie Blair on the importance of contraception

Briefing: it is surprising that anyone finds Mrs Blair's remarks surprising. She must count as the most prominent hypocrite of the age, calling herself 'a good Catholic girl'. As well as recounting her use of contraception, her autobiography tells of her fornication and even two-timing before she married. See our earlier post on this picture of her brandishing a condom.

From CFNews: Cherie Blair, wife of former British prime minister Tony Blair, appeared to contradict Catholic teaching on artificial birth control during a television interview in which she talked about the impact of contraception on women's lives. Speaking in an interview on GMTV, Blair responded to viewers interested in her remarks concerning contraceptive use in her new book. In her book, Blair told how her youngest son was conceived when she did not pack her contraceptive equipment.

'People seem to be quite shocked that perhaps a Catholic girl even uses contraception but it is really an important thing for women because one of the things about the book is about how women's lives have changed,' Blair told interviewer Lorraine Kelly. 'One of the reasons women's lives have changed is that they have been able to control their fertility, it is an important issue.' Her comments follow Pope Benedict XVI's remarks earlier this month defending the 1968 papal encyclical Humanae Vitae, which explains how artificial contraception is immoral. Blair also spoke in the interview about meeting two Popes, which she called a 'huge thing' for a 'good Catholic girl.'

Her husband, Tony Blair, converted to Catholicism last December. According to The Press Association, a spokesman for the Catholic Church in England and Wales declined to comment.

I wonder why people still call the Blairs Catholic? I don´t regard people who make it up as they go along and disregard the fundamental traditional teachings of the Church as Catholic. This modern-life, Novus Ordo gang have nearly wrecked the Catholic Church. Thank GOD we have a good Pope at last who is putting things right!

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
