I have already written about Jacob Rees-Mogg, the U.K. “Honourable Member For The XVIII Century”.
Rees-Mogg has stunned, stunned observers and political personnel by going to a popular morning TV show and clearly expressing his opposition to both so-called gay marriage and abortion.
The man is, so to speak, “officially unofficially” running for PM. It is inconceivable that his words were not planned or well-reflected beforehand. I do not recall any UK politician in such a position making such unequivocal statements on such matters.
I am now arming myself with the usual dose of cynicism and awaiting the probable distinguos and back-pedalling following the predictable storm that ensued, with the apostles of tolerance all showing great intolerance for the otherwise thinking.
I do not want to even begin to hope that God might have graced us with a man who, posed in front of the choice between his faith and his career, unhesitatingly and vocally chooses the first. Even if he does not make it to PM, it would be such a beautiful gesture that it would be written in heaven forever, and it would give to those sincere Catholics still remaining the warm feeling of knowing that someone still puts Christ first.
Congratulations again to the Honourable Member For The XVIII Century. May your faith keep you on the straight and narrow and, with God's grace, make of you a weapon for Christ in the XXI Century.
