Christian Cross offensive say Coronation Street

#2
Par for the course in dumbed down Britain.

Must kow-tow to the ethnics at every turn..............

Whilst we're on the subject of Corrie has anyone noticed the picture of Peter Barlow on his sideboard of him wearing the cap of a US Naval Officer? I thought he had served as a chef in the RN. I suppose it's possible - US Naval Officer with Manc accent to Bookie in Weatherfield.

Just like Jim McDonald was a Sgt in the RE.

I'm off to take my medication.

How is it possible for the cross to be thought offensive?? It is an accepted symbol in Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths (with apologies to the other major religions of the world - I don't mean to leave you out, it's just that you don't get as unecessarily upset about these things as everyone else ;-) )

The world is going mad......a classic example of people not really knowing what they are being "pc" about and jumping on the bandwagon in an attempt to curry favour and be "seen" to be "doing the right thing".


Can a girlie harrumph, rustle the papers and sink back into the leather armchair? If so, consider it done!




(....yes, yes...probably too many quotation marks, but you do understand what I mean! :) )

I think they had me in mind when they said it was offensive - all religious forms of talisman give me the sh!ts.

'Attempt to curry favour' ... Freudian slip?

Really? Is that why "break the crosses" used to be (and probably still is) a popular rallying cry in that fine religion? To be fair, though, there's nothing to suggest that Muslims or any other 'ethnics' were involved in this particular nonsense, just the usual spineless, lefty, arty Brit throbbers.

More to the point, any grown man found watching Coronation Street (or EastEnders, for that matter) should be given a warm hug, a large ice cream and a fat red balloon. And then crucified.

This is why being an Atheist is fantastically good for your blood pressure. Once you realise that it is all nonsense then the sight of a cross, star of David, star and crescent or anything else is about as likely to incite anger as seeing a stuffed teddy bear, piece of toast or small owl.

I'm scared of teddy bears...............

Congratulations on the spot - but you didn't say 'and I claim my five pounds'. Not to worry, I will send you a signed copy of the Jyllands-Posten newspaper cartoon strip as you were so quick.

Sorry, mis-read the title.

Was just wondering what "Christian Gross" the ex Tottenham Hotspur FC manager had done to upset those on "Corrie"

My bold :oops:

Kind of you to say so but, for once, I'd rather steer clear of our Mussulman brothers and concentrate on 'Corrie'. It's my firm opinion that regular watching of this and similar tripe should qualify the guilty for (if not actual crucifixion) immediate sterilization, withdrawal of suffrage and compulsory life membership of Zanu NL. Oh, and a night of carnal bliss with Karen Matthews.

In a further attempt to undermine the already besieged Christian faith in this country by the media and production industry, Coronation Street hid a cross to film a recent wedding because it was 'offensive'.

Story here (Mod I can't do the Link thing).

The Cross is universally accepted as a symbol of Christianity in the U.K. and also Christianity is the main religion of the U.K. and should be respected like all other religions .

Last night when I got home from the sodapop shop the missus was in her usual rigidly hypnotised state in front of one or other of the soapy dioramas. For about ten minutes I thought I was back in Nigeria.

One of the good things about these gems of scriptwriting genius is that all the characters speak in low, hushed tones. You don't need to turn up the volume on your headphones to drown out the meaningless static coming from the telly room.

Of course if you didn't want a cross in the picture why not script a civil ceremony. Sounds like the chavette who wanted to wear a crucifix but didn't like the ones with the dead man nailed to them
