Blair's Not Alone

Henry VIII must be rolling in his crypt. A story in the Sydney Morning Herald reports that Roman Catholics have reclaimed their spot as the dominant faith in England.

CATHOLICS have overtaken Anglicans as Britain's most dominant religious group, reflecting great waves of migration from Catholic countries.

More people are now attending Mass every Sunday than are worshipping with the Church of England, confirming that the established church has lost its spot as the most popular Christian denomination after more than four centuries of unrivalled influence following the Reformation.

Leading figures warned on Saturday that the Church of England faced becoming a minority faith and that the findings should act as a wake-up call.

That has been the Roman Catholics ambition since the reformation. They never did get over it. But don't you think that if the Roman Cathoic Church were to dominate as it did at the time of Henry eighth, we would revert back to medieval times. "Off with their heads. He/she didn't kiss my ring!"
Religion is such a waste of time, effort and money.

Oh anon, you've given me a nostalgia rush. Do you think we could really get back to the good old days?
