BBC censors Sikh history in case it offends Muslims

Oct 7, 2019 by

by Archbishop Cranmer: Lord (Indarjit) Singh has been almost as permanent a fixture on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Thought for the Day’ as the Bishop of Leeds, Nick Baines. The BBC likes a certain sort of thought for the day, delivered by a certain sort of thinking person. If you hold a certain establishment status (like bishop or peer [or, preferably, both]) and they like the way you think, you can easily become a permanent fixture, featuring at least fortnightly, if not weekly, and pocketing £200 a time....

Women’s well-being goes by the board in mania for gender equality

Oct 6, 2019 by

by Caroline ffiske, The Conservative Woman: THE BBC has found a new addition to the long list of non-problems we are endlessly encouraged to care about. Last week it explored why so few women are patent holders.  Their research has uncovered the apparently outrageous fact that female inventors account for just under 13 per cent of patent applications globally. One woman for every seven men. We’ll only be able to cheer the BBC reports in 2070 which is the time it will take for us to reach...

The damaging and immoral depravity of the BBC

Sep 25, 2019 by

from Voice for Justice UK: The BBC (Beelzebub’s Broadcasting Corporation) teaches children that there are over 100 genders.   This rather startling claim appears in a series of nine films put together by BBC Teach for use alongside the personal, social, and health education (PSHE) curriculum in schools. An almost bewildering array of politically correct choice, one might have thought, and highly confusing to the average nine year old at whom the lessons are aimed – especially given...

What should bishops say in public?

Sep 19, 2019 by

by David Baker, Christian Today: Imagine, just for a moment, being given an opportunity to address the country on national radio. What’s more, you’ve been asked – specifically as a Christian – . to share with people something that will really make them think. And all you’ve got is a couple of minutes. What might you want to say? As a Christian, I hope you might find yourself trying to think of ways in which you could present something of Jesus clearly, in such a way as to...

The BBC and the Tower of Babel

Sep 17, 2019 by

by David Robertson, Christian Today: Genesis 11 tells us the fascinating story of the tower of Babel. Humanity was setting itself up against God and as part of that decided to build a skyscraper. God’s means of frustrating this is revealing – “Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.” The plan worked. Humanity was divided and scattered. Melvin Tinker, an Anglican vicar, uses the imagery of the tower of Babel, together with that...
