VALUES ARE FOR OTHER PEOPLE

Ronan Keating has made no secret of his support for a fairly narrow reading of Catholicism: sex outside marriage is bad, those that God has joined together let no man put asunder, and so on. So, then, you'd expect him to take a pretty dim view of Brian McFadden dumping Kerry Katona, walking out on the kids and shacking up with Delta Goodrem, right?

Wrong! Because as with most people who spout off about how bad the rest of us, are Ronan takes the view that values are for other people:

"Brian is a good friend of mine. Delta's a sweetheart, she's a lovely lady. I hope they do another duet together and maybe an album. They're good together and they're very, very happy together and I wish them the best."

Well, if he's a friend, that's different, then.

Keating isn't usually so lightweight on his interpretation of Catholic Church law: indeed, he's complained loudly that Catholicism in Ireland was a "bloody shambles" and suggested he was considering boycotting the church over the lack of "tradition and discipline". But only, of course, for other people.

By definition, Ronan's opinions and values aren't really worth considering. Look at the evidence-
1)He believes that the world was created in 7 days by a bearded superhero who lives in outer space
2)He believes that all those years making aural tofu with Westlife were somehow culturally worthwhile.

Hey, that's an insult to tofu, which is a noble dish when prepared properly (preferably with lots of grated ginger...)
