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.
