Why can’t anyone just have a rational opinion and pursue the course of action that it entails, any more? Why must a simple position statement be interpreted as the rantings of a “thundering” spokesperson?
The media is frequently criticised for promoting atheism [is it? - HumLife], but Classic FM has landed itself in a shallow fry for seeming to suppress it. Adverts for Eric Idle’s show Not the Messiah have been pulled from the classical music station after listeners objected to the promotion of a “militant atheist production”. Now the British Humanist Association has whipped itself into a lather over free speech and is lobbying for a U-turn. “There are no blasphemy laws in this country any more and this decision is entirely unjustifiable,” thunders a spokesman. We decline to pronounce either way, though we’re sure there was once a time when comedians were allowed to make jokes.
