Blair says his religion didn’t influence Iraq war decision

Former British prime minister Tony Blair said on Friday his religious beliefs did not play a role in his decision to support the US-led invasion of Iraq, during a debate about the merits of religion in Toronto.

That’s obvious. If you claim to be a follower of Jesus Christ, and yet commit yourself to engaging in illegal warfare on the basis of lies you can indeed not blame your religion.
