Would that producers and directors had the kahonies to portray a Muslim decapitating a Christian, something that actually happens, and with plenty of “theological” precedents. No worries, however: your local jihadi website will have authentic ones for your viewing. “Bonekickers drama blasted for showing gruesome decapitation scene,” from the Daily Mail, July 12 (thanks to BJ McDoc):
A BBC drama has triggered a barrage of complaints after it showed gruesome images of a Muslim being beheaded.
Bonekickers, about a group of archeological sleuths, depicted an extremist Christian decapitating a man with a sword.
The bloody scene has prompted 100 complaints since it was broadcast on BBC1 on Tuesday evening.
The BBC drama Bonekickers has upset many viewers after showing a mulim [Muslim] beheaded by an extremist Christian.
Yesterday the corporation admitted ‘regret’ that viewers had found the scene ‘inappropriate’, but defended its decision to show it.
Some viewers were taken aback when former EastEnders actor Paul Nicholls was seen in the drama hacking off a moderate Muslim’s head in an unprovoked attack.
He plays a member of the fictional White Wings Alliance, a group of far-Right evangelical Christians inspired by the Crusades.
The show, watched 6.8million, also sparked new claims of anti-Christian bias in BBC programmes.
One viewer wrote on the corporation’s website: ‘If it had been another religion portrayed in that manner, the PC police would have been up in arms about the nastiness and their rights not to have their religion ridiculed – as it was Christians, it was apparently OK.”
Amen to that””oops: hope I didn’t offend anyone.
