Andrei Oh for goodness sake

The Pope will deliver the BBCs "Thought for the day" on Christmas Eve. This news has some people all in a lather.

The BBC has disgraced itself with Pope’s Thought for the Day

News that the Pope has been given a Thought for the Day slot on BBC Radio 4 on Christmas Eve may be a coup for the BBC, but it is a slap in the face for the thousands of clerical abuse victims who are still waiting for justice.

"The Pope should be challenged, not given an uninterrupted platform on Thought for the Day" - Terry Sanderson, NSS President
The Pope will be allotted an uninterrupted and unchallenged platform in which to continue to claim that he is the source of all that is good and the enemy of all that is bad. In reality, it is the other way round.

Theodore Darymple has a good reply to this sort of thing, summarised as:

... Benedict XVI presents not a challenge to this or that piece of social policy, but to a whole Weltanschauung. And hell hath no fury like a questionable Weltanschauung questioned.

That name gets me every time! Darymple should be Dalrymple.

Off topic, but Gecko and I would like to wish all the authors of NZ Conservative a very Happy Christmas. May you all have a fine 2011 as well.

Merry Christmas to you and Gecko too, KG.

And you've given me a good idea - a Christmas wishes post.

The abuse victims are insisting on defining themselves by their abusers and the abuse they suffered. It seems they will only be happy when every church is burned to the ground and every priest, innocent or guilty is thrown into the sea.
