Subject: BS: Jacob Rees-Mogg

There is talk that British politician Jacob Rees-Mogg could become the next Prime Minister, but some would say that he would have a mountain to climb to get there because of his strict - some would say -views on abortion and gay marriage.
Youtube have a number of videos where fellow politicians say that his views are old fashioned, and out of touch with current thinking. But,of course, they are not HIS views, they are God's views...if you are believer in The Bible and it's teachings.
Now, the UK has a State religion and The Queen is the head of it, so you would have thought that is cases like abortion and gay marriages, the Church would be the arbiters of what is morally correct.
It seems to me that UK politicians like the idea of religion but are quite happy to disregard its teachings if it suits them.

Personal views are not always government views. Belief or lack of belief in a deity is not required of a politician unless inflicted on an unwilling electorate. Rees Mogg certainly has the required debating skills, on a par with the former Mekon Hague. He wouldprobably make a fine PM unlike Boris kerfuffle Johnson.

Iains, you missed my point! Rees-Moog is expressing THE BIBLE's point of view, and the Government are overriding those views which is rather strange when, as I said before, the UK have a State religion which, surely, is based on the teachings of the Bible.
The Government seem to want their cake and eat it.

R-M is expressing the point of view of a subset of Bible-bashers, one not necessarily shared with other Christians. And Biblical writings, dating as they do from different times and circumstances, often express more than one point of view.

David Cameroon was fine PM. He ran the referendum to a fine line.

J R-M would be a fine PM that lost the vote of the electorate of this country.

But we are living in interesting times and the swivel-eyed right engender a need for the looney left. Anything could happen. And probably will. Hold on to your seats folks, it will be a bumpy ride.

To use his own expression J R-M is a good egg, a curate's egg.

No matter what a political leader thinks or believes, the party in power dictates the agenda. How many manifestos are adhered to? Is this deliberately lying to the electorate, or the actuality of realpolitik?
Trump in America and May over in the UK are both sabotaged by the Administrative. In the case of America it goes even further. After all Woodrow Wilson stated the following:
“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

Many past Presidents have passed similar comments! Deep State is regarded as a myth or fairy tale by many. I wonder what they base their certainty on? The way international politics plays out is at odds with the stated aims most of the time.
Would this be a case of Sod's Law or hidden choreographers?
Today there would seem to be an unfettered fourth arm of government. In the US it is the multiple entities of the Intelligence Services.

No - but I see a Catholic hierarchy which whisch facilitated and covered up for the rape of children throughout the twentieth cetury and which is now attempting to influence by way of spiritual blackmail one of the most important decisions ever taken by the Irish people
Because of the Clerical abuse revelations and their opposition to same-sex marriage, religion is gradually bening written out of decision making in Ireland
Later this year it will lose the right to demand baptismal rights in the 90 plus% of Irish schools it controls
Religion is a dying malignant force - not before time, and you want a bible-bashing fundamentalist caricature for a prime minister!!!
For the hope of the present generation, I hope you fall at this particular fence, but in the long term, maybe it's not a bad idea
Perhaps then, Britain can start to clean out its political Augian Stable of the dross that has accumulated over the centuries

Rees-Mogg is an anachronism that does not belong in the 21st century. Pretty much like most religious zealots I suppose. I have no issue at all with people in authority, or anyone else for that matter, having religious beliefs as long as they don't try to foist those beliefs onto anyone else. The trouble is that people like Rees-Mogg would abuse that authority to ensure that their medieval attitudes are applied to the population in general. Having him in power would be very dangerous.

Although I detest Jacob ("Call me Jake"?) Rich-Mong's supercilious, pompous, toffee-nosed persona, I do wonder to what degree his utterances are influenced by his desire to get himself noticed, and to position himself for a leadership-bid should the opportunity arise?
