It seems Auntie is letting just anyone in these days

On Monday, the Corporation announced that it has appointed a Muslim as head of religious broadcasting. This is not a joke, I can assure you.


Retired Presbyterian minister Dr. Robert Coulter said the appointment of Aaqil Ahmed was "a juvenile gimmick".

"According to the Church of England 70% of the UK are Christian, 3% are Muslim yet the BBC for its head of religious broadcast appoints a Muslim," he said.

Religious commentator Clifford Longley said the complaints were "spurious".

Well, if he's a practising Muslim, he probably believes in a single personal God who created everything.

That probably puts him ahead in Christian doctrine of these two yahoos, at any rate.
