Memorandum by Dr J Maxwell
This is to register my protest as an individual
on the amount of time the BBC allows to religious programming
and religious content of ostensibly non-religious programming.
I consider myself a rational person, a scientist, someone who
is not persuaded to live my life according to myths and superstition
that have no verification in factonly the delusions of
what others long, long ago imagined they heard in their heads,
and regard the BBC's continual broadcasting of such material as
an offence and insult to my intellect.If the BBC wishes to operate
democratically as a provider of inclusive programming, then it
ought to broadcast in equal measure programmes focused on those
who live their lives amidst 21st century realities without the
need to defer their decisions on morality or ethics to ancient
texts or the pronouncements of a man in the sky.
