MAIL ONLINE: The new leader of English Catholics yesterday slapped down Tony Blair over his calls for gay rights in the Church. The Most Reverend Vincent Nichols said Roman Catholic thinking was 'rather different' to the kind promoted by the former Prime Minister. Archbishop Nichols described Mr Blair - the Church's most prominent convert of recent years - as a fine politician with 'very well-tuned political senses'. But he dismissed Mr Blair's grip on spiritual truths, adding: 'I think I will take my guide from Pope Benedict'. The former Prime Minister has attacked Papal views as 'entrenched' and called for Catholic leaders to follow popular sentiment and ease their condemnation of homosexuality. The Pope's Good Friday message addressed moral decline.
