MPs continue to debate over the future of the Prime Minister, following outcry after Boris Johnson was fined over lockdown parties at Downing Street.
The discussions steered towards Christian forgiveness, as MPs from both sides of the political divide argued over whether the PM deserved redemption.
Wycombe MP Steve Baker started the conversation, aiming his comments at fellow Christian and SNP MP Ian Blackford.
Baker said: “Some of us actually are extremely disappointed but I will just say one thing whilst I’ve got the floor…
“He’s [Blackford] a brother in Christ. Does he not believe in redemption?”
The SNP politician responded: “I believe, Mr Speaker, in truth and justice, and I believe that when a Prime Minister has misled the House that he should face the appropriate sanctions.”
He then gave way to Labour’s Emma Hardy, who voiced her opinion of the theological matter.
She said: “On the issue of Christin forgiveness, I wonder if it’s worth pointing out to the House that before you can have Christian forgiveness, you first must have confession and contrition, neither of which we’ve seen from the Prime Minister.”
Arising from his seat once again, Blackford concurred, responding: “How we get confession from a Prime Minister that just denies everything I just don’t know.”
A motion has been passed to launch an investigation into whether Boris Johnson deliberately misled Parliament when he assured the House of Commons that he had not knowingly broken the rules of lockdown when attended a gathering at Number 10.
