Blind Faith

I don’t think Tony Blair’s desire for a “bigger role for faith” in addressing the problems of the world is one that I can easily accept. Unless he is proposing that the more moderate members of the various faiths should do more to counter the behaviour of the extremists and fundamentalists who share their faith!

After all many of the world’s current problems are being caused by the actions of those professing a faith, take these guys for instance. And let’s not forget Tony Blair’s own actions along with George Bush in creating many more problems than have been solved thanks to their antics in Iraq.

Of course there are roles to be fulfilled by those of faith – we all share the planet after all – but let’s think very carefully about who we allow to fulfil these roles.
