Blair tries a new religious mask on for size

Tony Blair converted to Catholicism last Friday during Mass at Archbishop's House, Westminster.

Reaction to Blair's conversion has ranged from bemused to indignant. The latter tone is struck by Leslie Rowe, a Green Party Parliamentary candidate who penned a letter to the Yorkshire Post pointing out that the Roman Catholic Church is hypocritical for allowing an unindicted war criminal into its ranks. William Rees-Mogg cogitates on the political significance of the conversion in an officially Protestant state in his Times Online article on the subject.

Little mention is being made, however, of Mr. Blair's recent admission that he avoided revealing his deep religiosity for fears of being labelled a "nutter". Although some may believe him to be referring to a professed British aversion to public avowals of faith, perhaps he is referring to the bizarre occult rituals which he performed during his reign as Prime Minister of Britain.

Peter Foster's claim that Mr. Blair had the Blair's own "style guru" channel a force called "The Light" for advice about thorny political problems was dismissed by the media as the ramblings of a "conman" (despite the fact that the very same article admits he was telling the truth about the Cheriegate scandal). Mr. Foster's assertions were later backed up by journalist Paul Scott, who discussed the bizarre relationship between the Blairs and their "style guru" Carole Caplin as well as Cherie Blair's purported penchant for having her friend divine the right time to take key actions by "dowsing" hair and nail clippings. These reports, which corroborated each other and reveal a truly bizarre side of the British first family were denied by Downing Street and thus cast into the memory hole by the mainstream press.

Less easily dismissable are reports from both The Guardian and The Edmonton Journal that the Blairs took part in an Aztec "rebirthing" ceremony involving chants and prayers designed to balance their energy flow during a trip to Mexico. The Journal article described the ceremony this way:

Dressed only in bathing suits, Britain's first couple stood outside a brick pyramid on the hotel's grounds and bowed toward each point of the compass while chanting to each of the four winds. The spiritual leader of the ceremony encouraged them "to feel at one with Mother Earth," the Times reported, and to "experience inner feelings and visions."

The Blairs then moved around the outside of the pyramid, one fašade at a time, praying first to the Mayan symbols of the sun and baby lizards, signifying spring and childhood. They then prayed to another wall, on which a bird was painted, representing adolescence, summer and freedom. One a third was a crab for maturity and autumn, and finally a serpent for winter and transformation.

Moving inside, Tony and Cherie immersed themselves in the herb-infused mist of a Mayan steam bath to sweat the physical and spiritual impurities from their bodies and to "balance their energy flow." Mayan holy songs were incanted as they meditated and attempted to conjure up visions of animals in the steamy air. The celebrant explained the meaning of each of their hallucinations.

Before emerging from the pyramid, the Blairs were instructed to give voice to their hopes and fears (they said a prayer for world peace), and then undergo a "rebirth." This involved smearing one another with papaya and watermelon, then with mud from the Mayan jungle outside, the Times explained.

Finally, while exiting the womb-door of the pyramid, "the Blairs were told to scream out loud to signify the pain" of birth. They then walked hand-in-hand to the beach for a dip in the Caribbean.

Perhaps this is what Mr. Blair was referring to when he said he feared he would be called a "nutter."

While such practices by an acting Prime Minister seem utterly preposterous at first glance, the reports have come from a variety of mainstream sources. Perhaps the spirituality of the ruling elite—who just happen to get elected directly after attending the highly secretive Bilderberg conference—differs markedly from that of the mainstream Christian religion they claim to be a part of:
