Songs of Praise same-sex promo upsets viewers

from The Christian Institute:

BBC’s Songs of Praise has alienated its viewers after it featured a same-sex wedding in this week’s programme.

Jamie Wallace and Ian McDowell married at Rutherglen United Reformed Church near Glasgow – one of the few denominations to have accepted the redefinition of marriage.

While presenter Kate Bottley described the URC decision as “momentous”, viewers were disappointed by the one-sided presentation of same-sex marriage on a Christian programme.

The couple were able to speak without challenge on the programme, with Mr Wallace justifying his stance by saying: “Jesus preaches about love and inclusion, kindness, compassion.”

Commenting on Twitter, one viewer said: “Your coverage of the same sex wedding, was very weak and one sided, no verbal challenge or biblical view of this issue.”
