Baroness Warsi fails to convince

Baroness Warsi (pictured above with leader of the Conservative party and Prime Minister, David Cameron on a visit to a mosque) failed to convince many people that UK should be more religious in public life. CLICK HERE TO WATCH HER SPEECH in Vatican. It does not appear she is aware that what is personal identity is not fixed in stone and that people have the right to change their religious and non-religious beliefs. It is plain silly for a politician to preach to people how they should shape their identity religion wise or not.   There is something called personal choice (right or wrong) and responsibility for that choice is not with Baroness Warsi.

It is not clear if Baroness Warsi's special adviser told her about George Burn's recommendations that the secret of a good sermon is to have a good beginning and a good ending, then having the two as close together as possible.

Now she is subject to allegations of improper conduct regarding her expenses. A doctor says she did not pay rent and other expenses that tenants normally pay such as council tax. People have been threatened with prison for non-payment of Council tax and some have even been bankrupted over it by local governments.

Vatican also has allegations of financial maladministration as well accepting financial funds from notorious paedophile such as Maciel.

It is frustrating for the government keen to do good when the choice of traditional female image does not fit the needs of the population which has moved on from faith onto better times thanks to the great efforts of many individuals and organisations nationally and outside.

There are many quotes on religion but this one is something that I like:
  If a man would follow, today, the teachings of the Old Testament, he would be a criminal. If he would follow strictly the teachings of the New, he would be insane.
Robert Green Ingersoll
