The BBC is once again attacking, undermining Christian beliefs and teachings.
It has consistently produced programmes that mock or demonise Christians, undermine the Church as an institution and denounces the Bible as a doctored, fraudulent piece of propaganda.
In ‘The Prophets’ on R4 it has examined five prophets. Here I look at one programme which examines ‘Isaiah’ who is a major prophet upon whose prophecies rests the basis of Christianity…the prediction of the ‘Messiah’.
Firstly you must realise that Isaiah isn’t a real person, probably, says the BBC….and if he isn’t real how can his prophecies be real? And if his prophecies are not real how can Jesus, the Messiah as predicted in those prophecies, be real?
In other words the whole basis of Christianity is set upon a lie.
Isaiah gave permission, gave rise to the idea of the Messiah…..
And the BBC tells us….listen to the tone of voice particularly here…..with such an expectation it is hardly a surprise that some group of Jews would say to themselves ‘this is the Man’.
‘Some group of Jews’ eh? Interesting phrase.
Not long ago Melvyn Bragg had a pop at the Prophets…telling us that the Bible is made up, doctored, written after the events ‘prophesised’ had occurred, to ‘confirm’ prophecies rather than to record them and that there was a ‘conscious fabrication of Christ’.
He had on Muslim Mona Saddiqui…who only spoke to praise Mohammed and the Koran…telling us the Koran couldn’t possibly be a fake…as Mohammed couldn’t write…therefore it must be the Word of God, a true miracle…..not only that but that we would all be Muslims if only Mohammed had been so prophesised as was Jesus in the Bible….nothing like a bit of Muslim propaganda on the BBC.
“Do I believe in the fundamental tenants of what makes Christianity, that there is a God who cares about every one of us? I’m afraid not. Resurrection? I’m afraid not. And so on.”
Ironically, if his own programmes about Christianity weren’t contradiction enough, in the same speech he states:
“What I really resent is their (atheists’) attack on the Christian ways and particularly the Christian history. Dismissing the ‘sky Gods’ – how dare they? That was the best people could do at that time.”
I guess that once inside the bowels of the BBC with all those eyes upon you your principles go out the window.
In contrast he BBC has stated that it refuses to examine Islam in the same manner because Muslims are a minority in this country who must be above criticism because they would feel victimised and alienated by such a process.
You can pretty much dismiss that argument. The reality is that when Islam is criticised various threats are made by the Muslim ’community’…..not restricted to violent extremists….Lord Ahmed’s threat to march on Parliament with ten thousand Muslims springs to mind, as does his alleged bounty on Obama and Bush….and the BBC is intimidated into silence.
The BBC’s stance on Islam is contradicted by their approach to reporting Buddhism…in which they happily denounce Buddhism as a ‘religion of violence’.
Just how many Buddhists are there in the UK? Are they not also going to be ‘victimised and alienated’ by the BBC‘s aggressive criticism of their religion? I imagine the BBC feels that there is little threat that any employee will be beheaded by the followers of this religion despite it being one that, the BBC tells us, is a ‘religion of violence’.
It is more than apparent that one religion gets far more favourable treatment from the BBC than any other.
