Another tweeted: â€śThis canâ€™t be serious, a gay wedding on songs of praise. Donâ€™t you read the Bible, or do you rip out the pages that may upset your lifestyle. Making a mockery of the church and on national tv.â€ť
Oh, they're reading there bible just fine, they're reading the vaticanus and sinaiticus inspired fake modern bibles of rome.
In successive years the BBC has turned its back on any hint of Judeo-Christian principles, in favour for political correctness, pro-abortion, pro-LGBT and Transgender, pro-â€śclimate changeâ€ť environmentalism, pro-euthanasia, and pro-EU, and definitely opposed to anything remotely Christian or conservative. Songs of Praise, and the BBC Radio 4 service, (Sunday morning on FM and a daily service on the little used Long Wave band), as well as special services at Christmas and Easter, (Resurrection Day), are about the only remnant or anything Christian left on the BBC.
Donâ€™t forget that this BBC is the state supported television and radio network paid for by a compulsory licence fee, on all British tv owners as well as users of BBC internet tv services resident in Britain (including recorded iPlayer programmes), subject to fines in criminal law for non payment.
Thankfully those who only have radio (live or iPlayer radio only internet use), do not have to pay this charge, which was scrapped for radio quite a few years ago.
In my opinion with Freeview, cable, Internet and satellite tv services on the rise, competing with BBC (some of these require a private subscription, but which does not have legal penalties unlike the BBC), the compulsory BBC tv licence is completely anachronistic, and as it was for radio, it is high time that the tv licence was abolished., and that will no doubt mean that BBC will have to carry adverts instead.
Things have actually gone the other way and now BBC have decided to abolish free tv licences for over 75â€™s from next year, except for those who successfully apply for a very bureaucratic pension tax credit from the government.
The program focuses on a Jesus who is not the Jesus of the Bible. "Songs of Praise" loves an ecumenical Jesus (who cannot be the Jesus of the Bible). It has a Jesus who accepts homosexual marriage (who cannot be the Jesus of the Bible). It promotes a Jesus who loves CCM and rock worship bands (who cannot be the Jesus of the Bible).
In other words, "Songs of Praise" has created a religious program for the religious public, who do not want to follow the biblical Jesus, but who want to have a nice life, easy and smooth, without too much swearing or drinking, not too much adultery or fighting, plenty of charitable work to soothe the conscience and increase self-righteousness, plenty of jolly sing-along hymns for the older ones and raucous heavy metal songs for the younger ones, plenty of religion, especially the church calendar with all its feast days, getting babies regenerate by baptism, plenty of liturgical spookiness with statues in the sanctuary, processions and marches, ornaments and candles, lots of sentiment and emotion-tinglers, a real fantasy world under the guise of Christian work and witness, but all the time it is a......
