According to an article on this site, former British prime minister, Tony Blair, has set a new goal: uniting the world's religions or, well, three of them.
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair unveiled last Saturday that uniting the world's three largest religions will be his lifetime goal. Blair, who once said that God would be his judge on Iraq, launched a foundation that will work towards the peaceful coexistence of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.
Although while premier Tony Blair urged British politicians not to perform American-style "chest beating," now he wants religion to play a leading role in the 21st century. At the opening conference of his new foundation, Blair admitted that "Religious faith will be of the same significance to the 21st Century as political ideology was to the 20th Century."
The Tony Blair Faith Foundation was launched on May 30, 2008, in New York City. The invited guests, among who was Former US President Bill Clinton, heard Blair saying that "the world [was] going tumultuous change" and, to address new issues, world leaders would have to discover a set of rules which could guide them in their efforts. According to the former British prime minister, religion is the answer.
And once again the only True faith housed inside the First Church of the DC Comictician and Latter Day Citizens of the United Federation of Planets was not invited. It would appear that the fans of comic books like the Tao Te Ching, the Dhammapada, and the Upanisads ain't invited neither. He's not even making any appeals to those who follow the teachings of Spiderman and the Fantastic Four. So one has to wonder if Blair's been huffing on plant vapors or just what the deal is.
Furthermore, if Tony Blair has no intentions of bringing Batman to the masses he might as well not even bother. There is only one league and one command that can combat the threats we face today and they can't be found in the Bible or the Koran. They can only be found in DC Comics and the Five Holy Star Trek Shows.
And we also call for unity: unity amongst those of us who understand the will of the Martian Manhunter and the morals taught to us by Captain James T. Kirk. Everyone else can go rot in Arkham or become one with the Borg Collective.
We invite former Prime Minister Tony Blair to join us before it's too late and the Legion of Doom launches their final assault against the U.S. and Great Britain.
