Newspapers in England including the Evening Standard are abuzz with rumours (notice I spelled it the English way) that Prime Minister Tony Blair may be on the verge of declaring himself a Catholic?

It has long been speculated that Blair, who attends Mass regularly, would convert to Catholicism after leaving No 10 Downing St.

One problem, however, is that the moment he’s officially entered he may be immediately excommunicated for his position on abortion.
