BBC director general Mark Thompson has admitted that the broadcaster has to tackle Islam differently to Christianity and is reluctant to broadcast jokes about it.
He suggested that coverage needed to consider the feelings of Muslims because they are a religious minority, and had not fully integrated in to British society.
Mr Thompson was responding to comments made by comedian Ben Elton earlier this year who accused the BBC of being too scared to joke about Islam.
He said the corporation was too concerned with political correctness to poke fun at imams but were happy to satirise vicars.
Speaking at an annual theology lecture for religious think tank Theos, Mr Thompson said: ‘My view is that there is a difference between the position of Christianity, which I believe should be central to the BBC’s religion coverage and widely respected and followed.
‘What Christian identity feels like to the broad population is a little bit different to people for whom their religion is also associated with an ethnic identity which has not been fully integrated.
‘There’s no reason why any religion should be immune from discussion, but I don’t want to say that all religions are the same. To be a minority I think puts a slightly different outlook on it.’
Dhimmi prick. Just how many licence-fee payers voted for him? That’s right. NONE. He was appointed, just like Komrade Brown. I mean, I’m sure it has NOTHING to do with the £140+ million bribe loan the BBC got from the EU, a socialist Marxist organisation that, under the Barcelona Declaration and other documents, seeks to ‘guarantee respect for Islam’ and is looking to push ‘Islamophobia’ into hate crime category, even when Muslims are meeting to find ways to overthrough Britain and convert it into an Islamic Caliphate, how about outbreeding the British, and using British benefits to support them? No! No connection whatsoever, nothing to see here, move along back into your controlled thought zone…
However Mr Thompson, a practising Catholic Dhimmi, did insist that programmes that criticised Islam would be broadcast if they were of sufficient quality.
Yes of course they will. Fuck me, please don’t tell me I’m the only one who feels like we’re living under totalitarianism?
He revealed that his religious beliefs did play a part in the editorial decisions he made.
In his speech last night, the executive claimed there are now more programmes about religion on BBC television and radio than there have been in recent decades, whereas coverage has declined on ITV.
A BBC spokesman said: ‘People should look at his actual comments rather than trying to infer additional meaning that isn’t there.
‘What Mark Thompson said is that all religions are not the same – he did not say Islam, or indeed any faith, should be treated more sensitively than Christianity. In fact he made it crystal clear that no religion should be regarded as off limits for the BBC.’
Well, the BBC has no history of bias, does it, and on top of the ‘Sideline Christianity, Promote Islam‘ rhetoric of the State, the promotion of Islamophobia as the ‘worst form of terrorism‘ and the EU’s plan to enlarge its borders, to try and absorb the Arab world (while trying to force everyone else to accept Islam) we can see a pattern emerging..
