Subject: BS: Jacob Rees Mogg.
Mr Rees Mogg is a distinguished parliamentarian and was recently touted as favourite to succeed Mrs May as leader of the Conservative Party.
On TV this week he was asked what his personal views were on abortion. he stated that he thought abortion was wrong in all circumstances as it involved the taking of an innocent human life, he said that he followed the teaching of the Cathilic Church in his personal views.
When asked about same sex "marriage", he also said that he followed the teaching of the Catholic Church on that issue, stating that Marriage was a sacrament and could only apply to the union of one man and one woman.
Should these views prevent Mr Rees Mogg from succeeding Mrs May, and do similar views held by devout Muslims equally disqualify them from public office?
