ABC enrages its listeners by committing the unforgivable sin of taking Christianity seriously

ABC enrages its listeners by committing the unforgivable sin of taking Christianity seriously. By James Macpherson.

Richard Glover, … the host of Sydney’s Drive program, was inundated with angry messages for daring to subject his audience to the Christmas story — at Christmas no less – as it is presented in the Bible.

This was such a strange experience for Aunty’s listeners, who are more familiar with Christianity being deconstructed on the national broadcaster, that they reacted like a rabid mob at a crucifixion.

Glover was accused of ‘promoting a magic man in the sky’ and platforming ‘ideas that are beyond the pale’.

He was told he might as well have used the segment to explain the virtues of paedophilia or anti-Semitism.

Listeners complained that interviewing a biblical expert about the Christmas story was akin to interviewing an ‘anti-vaxxer conspiracy nut or a neo-Nazi’.

All of this because on Wednesday he had a brief conversation with Reverend Professor Dorothy Lee from Melbourne’s University of Divinity about the birth of Jesus, three weeks before — you know — the birth of Jesus.

No diversity here thanks, we’re publicly funded:

If the Reverend had been a progressive Leftie arguing Jesus never existed or, even better, that Jesus had existed but was assigned the wrong gender at birth, there would have been applause.

But a segment that examined the Bible as it is written — without superimposing Marxism, critical race theory, or this week’s LGBTQ fetish onto the text — was more than ABC listeners could tolerate.

The reaction was so fierce and so unhinged (even by ABC standards) that Glover took the extraordinary step of using Twitter to complain about his own audience.

‘So many angry about seven minutes of radio today on the biblical account of the birth of Jesus – featuring an Australian scholar who happens to be one of the world’s best,’ the radio veteran tweeted. …

But the ABC no longer consists of ‘normal’ people. It is a cabal for leftist thought, which certainly excludes conservative and Christian opinion. And God help any ABC presenter who strays from the narrative. …

People are annoyed that religious views are represented at Christmas? I wonder when those at the ABC consider orthodox Christian views can be expressed? I think we all know the answer to that one.

Christianity, the bedrock of western civilization, is the number one enemy of the narrative-people.
