BBC loves Islam...and hates Christianity....

This is from a former BBC broadcaster...
One of Radio 2's most popular religious presenters has launched a stinging attack on the BBC suggesting the broadcaster is biased against Christianity.

Don Maclean, 66, who hosted Good Morning Sunday for 16 years, said the broadcaster was 'keen' on programmes that attack the Christian church.

He said programming chiefs were keen to take a 'negative angle at every opportunity' in a way they do not with other faiths like Islam.

Mr Maclean said programmes about Anglicanism on the BBC always discuss gay clergy and for Catholicism they always mention paedophiles.

The presenter, who was replaced on the Radio 2 show in 2006 by Aled Jones, claimed the broadcaster was trying to 'secularise the country'.

He admitted that he was dismayed that the BBC recently appointed Aaqil Ahmed, a Muslim, as its new head of religious programming.

Mr Maclean, who was replaced by Aled Jones on the show, also accused the BBC of ageism saying that if you are over 60 and have not died 'they get upset'.

His comments come amid claims that the broadcaster is facing a confrontation with the Church of England over its recent appointment of Ahmed.

Concerns over the TV executive, who was poached from Channel 4, are set to be raised in a church document to be published today, according to reports.

It is suggested that the document will call his appointment to the BBC 'worrying' and accuses the corporation of treating religion like a 'freak show'.

Mr Maclean said: 'They're keen on Islam, they're keen on programmes that attack the Christian church.

'I know there are things that need to be brought forward, but you don't see any programmes on Anglicanism that don't talk about homosexual clergy and you don't see anything on Roman Catholicism that don't talk about paedophiles.

'They seem to take the negative angle every time. They don't do that if they're doing programmes on Islam. Programmes on Islam are always supportive.

No problem. Christians are known for turning the other cheek, not blowing it off the side of the other's face with explosives.

Obviously, someone's never heard of Northern Ireland.

They know which way the wind is blowing, at any rate. They just don't know where it comes from or where it goes.

Oh I've heard of Northern Ireland. It was a relative exception to the rule. In over 25 years of fighting the IRA killed 1821 people of which 612 were civilians and the rest soldiers, other law enforcement, and other paramilitaries. Their actions took place in Ireland and England, and strangely enough, Libya provided them with enough arms to mobilize 3 infantry battalions in the 80's! Islam, on the other hand, has engaged in 13441 attacks since 2001. If only one person died in each attack, you can see how staggering those numbers are for an eight year period in comparison to the quarter century IRA campaign! I've yet to find a conclusive death toll, but I'll be sure to let you know!

The BBC has a long history of appeasement and grovelling before Islam. See the links under 'BBC - censorship, bias, lies, omissions, distortions, smears, cowardice, dhimmitude, taqiyya, da'wa and Eurabian propaganda' at The Religion of Peaceā„¢ Subject Index

Apparently PBS in the U.S. has decided to enforce their "no religious programming" policy rather than be further accused of discriminating against Christians and favoring Muslims. They will continue to ignore their "fair and balanced political reporting" rule, however.
