Nailed: Jacob Rees-Mogg and his version of Christian values

Jacob Rees-Mogg and his nanny: The parents should take the blame.

Remember Tory darling Jacob Rees-Mogg’s appearance on Good Morning Britain, when he tried to justify his opposition to gay marriage and abortion – even in cases where pregnancy has occurred after rape – by referring to his Catholic Christian values?

Here’s the clip again:

Well, Iain Rowan of Sunderland had the perfect answer.

Writing in a newspaper (the name of which I don’t know because it isn’t mentioned in the following tweet, he stated:

For clarity, that’s: “Rees-Mogg justifies his opposition to gay marriage and abortion even in cases of rape on the basis of his Christian beliefs (Report, 7 September). So where is his opposition to welfare cuts on the grounds that Jesus went out of his way to demonstrate his compassion for the poor and the lame? When Jesus says ‘blessed are the peacemakers’, how does that fit with Rees-Mogg’s consistently voting for military intervention? Where are his statements on executive pay, reminding other MPs that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven? I thought being a committed Christian meant following the teachings of Jesus, rather than standing at the pick-and-mix counter in a sweetshop, only choosing the fizzy snakes.”

Strong words – and accurate.

And you know what?

If you take them from “Where is his opposition to welfare cuts”, they could be used to apply just as easily to that other well-known Tory “Christian” – Theresa May.

    Mogg called state school educated people thick. So I challenged him to a public IQ test and psychological personality test on his twitter, so far he has not replied. People should constantly challenge these creeps and call them to prove their statements

    If this unpleasant and weird character Rees Mogg becomes Tory leader it will only add to Corbyn’s majority.

    Old Etonian Tory Jacob Rees-Mogg says that he is a “Catholic”. According to my observations so far, he is an “arrogant, posh boy”. Any ideas?

    its people like him gets the catholic religion a bad name…along with those priests found guilty (and those not found out as yet) of child abuse. i constantly hear people pulling the catholics apart because of the latter . (and other issues, some from long ago too). it does not mean,that because SOME members of the catholic church (or any church/religion)choose to be either choosy about which parts they uphold and which they think they can ignore,or become abusive breaking their own church/human laws, or those who become obsessive and declare wars as holy wars,are examples of ALL the members of such churches. but it does mean the good and decent amongst them get tarred with the same brush,.
