BBC Proselytises For The Pope

with 7 comments

The Pope's Spin Doctor

Yesterday the Pope made a series of disgraceful excuses for paedophile priests.

Today, the BBC announced that it is to broadcast a Christmas message from him for the first time. This after earlier in the year it granted him extravagant and disproportionate coverage of his vist to Britain.

In a statement the Pope said that he wanted to thank the BBC for its coverage of his visit. I bet he does. For a religious cult that has less than a million regular supporters in Britain he was given saturation coverage on all BBC television and radio for four days.

Mark Thompson, director-general of the BBC is, of course, a hard core Catholic. Surely he has gone too far this time?

What should be happening is that BBC journalists should be probing ever deeper into the disgusting cover up of child abuse that the Pope is responsible for. They should also be tearing apart the sordid and corrupt financial affairs of the Vatican.

Mark Thompson has to go.  This is gross misconduct.

  1. Why does the Pope need to do a Christmas message anyway? Surely he’ll be spouting the same stuff he does all year round??

    The BBC has a bad habit of doing things like this, it’s especially annoying when you know one of the commercial stations would willingly do it. A good example would be Strictly Come Dancing, if the BBC gave it up then ITV or C4 would almost certainly take over, saving license payers money (although C4 does receive a little).

    I’d have more sympathy if the Beeb would put a little more effort into their other programs. As it is, they mainly air “me too” programs nowadays.

    The pope has about as much relevance on British life as Polar bears do!

  2. If the BBC is to grant airtime to the leader of one religious faith to deliver a Christmas Message then it behoves them, in the interest of maintaining ‘impartiality’, to extend the same privilege to leaders of other faiths on days that are significant to them ?

  3. I think there is scope for him to contribute to other R4 favourites too. He could a guest slot on, say, ‘Poetry Please’…….. Und now heer is von fur all zose who suffered at ze hands of bullies at school, Roger McGough’s “A history of the Catholic Brothers in twenty-one words”:

    “It’s like hitting your head against a brick wall,” said Brother Ryan, as he hit my head against a brick wall.

    What do you think, Mark?

  4. Question: is this a Catholic country? Answer: no. Then why is the Pope being given airtime to spread his dogma? Thompson isn’t only a Catholic, he’s a raving Zionist too. Remember the way he refused to allow DEC adverts for Gaza on the BBC during Operation Cast Lead?

  5. I understand he’s also recording ‘Nazi’s do the Funniest Things’. A future classic in the making.

  6. The Pope is a vile creature. One rather hopes these religious quacks are made out of a limp form of matter and antimatter. I would pay to see the Pope and Paisley shake hands and evaporate to nothingness. Maybe, if they were normal matter and antimatter this could be arranged in front of massed supporters on Bikini Atoll, as the resulting explosion would take them all out?
    The answer is not more general air-time for the godswankers – give them channel 147 so we can use parental controls so they can’t get in our living rooms by mistake.
