Any God will do

Keep Radio Four an atheist free zone! Such is the cry of an Early Day Motion from the DUP’s Iris Robinson. The First Ministers other half wants Radio Four’s Thought for the Day to exclude those subversive humanists and atheists.

Jewish, Islamic, Hindi and other faiths have had representatives appear in morning slot, but God forbid those atheist fiends having their say. The DUP, it would seem, have missed the fact that Radio Ulster have had humanists and humorists appear on Northern Ireland’s equivalent.

It’s nice that the DUP has found a new fresh target ahead of those Romanists; it’s okay to have the papists on radio, but not the likes of Richard Dawkins. ‘Tis indeed a strange and silly season.
