Deacon Tony Blair?

The Evening Standard has reported that Blair 'may become a Catholic deacon'. The story reports Fr Timothy Russ as enthusiastic about the idea. Specifically,
Father Timothy suggested that taking on a formal role in the Church could give him fresh moral clout when he campaigns on climate change and Africa.
Just to repeat: what about "moral clout" on the right to life of the unborn child, the evil of experimentation on human embryos and the immorality of homosexual civil partnerships?
