What right do the huge number of foul mouthed, unbelieving bloggers think they have to pontificate as to what sincere believers with a faith in God can or can’t be offended at? What right do they have to add insult to injury by their blasphemous comments? Make no mistake, these comments may seem amusing to those who maintain their right to watch whatever sort of filth they choose, but this is offensive in the extreme to ordinary Christians.
Unfortunately the sad story of the BBC’s intent to broadcast Jerry Springer’s ‘The Opera’ has brought out of the woodwork all those bloggers who have nothing good to say at all. Didn’t your mothers tell you ‘if you can’t say anything good, don’t say anything at all’? Blogging should be something that adds to this world’s knowledge and understanding, not a means of disseminating predjudice.
My only consolation is that one day Jesus has promised to return, and on that day everyone will use His name with reverence and worship Him as Lord.
Despite receiving over 15,000 complaints the BBC is determined to press ahead with their controversial screening of Jerry Springer’s ‘The Opera’. This is 10 times the number of complaints received regarding the screening of ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ and shows the extent to which this offends the British public who the BBC are mandated to serve.
I personally find the thought of my money contributing to this blasphemy highly disturbing. If all 15,000 offended individuals cancelled their TV license perhaps then the BBC would take notice. What a shame that a company with such a reputation for good programming should sink to such a low.
What do we do with the time we spent watching TV once our licenses are gone? Perhaps a detox diet of helpful material from God’s Word would get us all back to spiritual fitness….
BBC2 plans to broadcast Jerry Springer’s ‘The Opera’ on January 8th at 22:00. This musical, notorious for containing a continuous stream of
expletives depicts the characters of Jesus, Mary and God as self-centred sexual deviants who give and receive extreme verbal abuse and a horrific
series of blasphemies, all in the name of comedy. To Christian believers this is deeply offensive, insulting and blasphemous. Nevertheless, the show is scheduled to be transmitted without any cuts.
The BBC web site already carries an article on this.
