    Forget Brexit and Trump the beeb has decided it needs to increase spending and coverage of old religous cults.

    Proof if needed that the organisation is run by fruitcakes.

    How do I opt out?

    I seem to remember that the Beeb runs under a charter from the head of the Church of England. To be expected if so.

    The beeb needs to represent the diversity of license payers. Lots of folk still have faith and pay a license fee so it seems pretty fair to me.

    I don’t think the op cares either. Probably just stubbed their toe, or Maggie in accounts took the last of the milk….DESPITE IT CLEARLY BEING LABELLED WITH OP’S NAME…and is projecting his frustrations onto the BBC.

    I dont have milk and accounts is now offshore.

    Religious interest in rhe UK is at an all time low and declining making the rationale given for this change even less plausible.

    Awaiting the BBC’s concern with “balance” to be outlined, regarding this propaganda assault.

    I don’t like football.

    The BBC show Match of the Day EVERY WEEK! Every single week! This is intolerable and shows that they are run by fruitcakes.

    How do I opt out?

    Oh yeah. That’s right. I don’t watch it, and enjoy something from the 99.9995% or so of their content that isn’t about kickball instead

    CFH, but it’s cooler to complain about religion. It makes you look more knowledgeable…. surely you know that?

    Anyway, never mind all that- what are you getting everyone for Christmas?

    Football is a distraction for people who need to watch a sport.

    Religion is a disgraceful attempt to prevent progress and enlightenment by brainwashing children into dogmas based on superstition.

    The moderator is using a straw man argument to try and appear “even-handed” or the like, but in fact is merely aiding the forces of regression in their attempt to return us to the Middle Ages.

    Bring in the Match of the Day format to the religious programmes, post sermon analyse and replays is what we need.

    Well said Woppit.

    Religious fatalism is the greatest enemy of people in developing countries. Your family is wiped out in a minibus crash or your child dies because it is given fake drugs in hospital or a politician steals all the country’s money. What do you say? “It’s the will of God, what can I do?”

    “It’s the will of God, what can I do?”

    Is that similar to the will of the people? Both are crap.

    A seasonal anti-religion thread. Wonderful

    How the celebrations at the altars of gluttony and conspicuous consumption are more fulfilling for all

    I’m all for it if we get exposure to a wider selection of religious music from around the world:

    Well I was thinking of Woppit in the role of analyst in the manner of Alan Hansen, “you’ll never win anything with god”

    In times of disruption and change, uncertainty and dissatisfaction some people turn to Religion for guidance.
    Some people turn to KFC or 2ltr bottles of coke.

    I know who’d I’d side with.

    If you’re not happy with Religion being on TV, turn it off.

    How do I opt out of this cold, mirthless existence?

    Premier Icon BillMC

    The most unequal and oppressive societies in the world also tend to be the most religious. So with the car crash that the UK is becoming with falling incomes, underfunded services, housing crisis, gig economy the beeb deems that all it has to offer is more religion to fall in line with this trend. If the telly were to reflect religious participation rather than identification then your aerials will soon be pointing east.
    Fortunately I don’t need to turn it over, or off.

    A lot of the treatment and cures of fatal diseases are being ignored in developing countries due to religious teachings: can’t use condoms so you roll the dice with AIDS, and don’t go to the western doctors if you have malaria or Ebola and use their evil western medicine – go to your local priest or witchdoctor and eat some dried Lion testicals ground with camel dung and say a prayer instead.

    We’ve been there on war and the religious justifications and the part religious dogma plays in recruiting people to fight wars before – it’s a chicken before the egg argument. We often say the AK47 is the most lethal weapon ever devised by man, but a man is required to use an AK47 and in most cases the man who does operate it is doing so after being whipped up to fight for religious reasons. So religion as a weapon to recruit the AK47 operators is a far more dangerous and lethal weapon.

    Do they watch the BBC too, bet they haven’t even got licenses.

    They may not watch the BBC, but we’re often told they listen to the BBC World Service though.

    And here you are, reading it and commenting on it.

    There are 877,176 threads on the forum. There is probably almost as many TV programmes. Watch / read something else. In’t choice brilliant?

    The irony is, the Beeb intend to have less debating/arguing about religion.
    Leave that to the ‘net eh?
