Tony Blair a Catholic for 10 years?

I don’t know where to put this, but I thought the people on this forum would find it interesting.

Tony Blair as a Secret Catholic

He’s not a secret Catholic. He is a Catholic and its very public.
Everyone has known for ages.

I thought this was fairly recent, though? Like within the last two or three years.

The article states he was always a Catholic, (at least in his heart), but lied about it while he was in office because he thought it would cause him problems.

This blog raises some issues that are common among Catholics in the UK regarding the Blairs and Tony’s “conversion”.

His official conversion was in the last two years but he has attended Catholic church for a long time before that. That was known.
