It's done in that horribly condescending tone that makes it sound like a Michael Bay movie trailer, or a Keith Morrison spot on 20/20.

Agreed..!! (Not to rain on the parade..)

Go to: What Should Replace Religions?

I like Alan Moore's idea of everyone having their own very personal pretend deity.. with the understanding that it's all a bit of fun - not so much about 'belief' as 'suspension of disbelief':

Go to: FiveLive debate on faith and discrimination

What it seems to boil down to is that many people still have the attitude that homosexuality is about something you 'do', rather than something you 'are'. This enables them to draw a distinction between gays and people who are black, disabled, Irish or female for example...

Of course, in a secular society this should be beside the point, as what people do in private should always be their own business provided it doesn't cause harm to others, or infringe anyone else's civil liberties.

I couldn't agree with you more, robives. The last caller's mental gymnastics are an excellent vindication of Steven Weinberg's statement that 'for good people to do evil things, that takes religion'...

The presenter made an excellent point of highlighting the fact that the existence of female vicars likely causes considerable cognitive dissonance for many Christians - An irony lost on the 'well-meaning' caller, given her own status. Alas, hypocrisy will frequently fill the vacuum left by rational thinking...
