BBC bosses admit Christian bias

The BBC is institutionally biased against Christianity, the Corporation’s bosses have admitted.

A leaked BBC report reveals details of a candid 'impartiality summit' called by chairman, Michael Grade. The summit was attended by leading figures within the BBC.

According to the leaked report, BBC producers would happily broadcast footage of the Bible being thrown away but not the Koran.

One of the BBC's most senior journalists, Andrew Marr, is reported to have said there is an "abnormally large" number of "gay people" in the Corporation. He also said the BBC has a "culturally liberal bias."

All this will come as no surprise to many who have become increasingly concerned at the BBC's prejudice against Christianity.

The issue came to a head last year when the BBC rejected over 60,000 complaints about its decision to broadcast Jerry Springer the Opera, a show which portrayed Jesus Christ as a foul-mouthed sexual deviant.

Author Seeks "God Stories"

October 18, 2006

Christian Author Seeks God Stories from Great Britain

Do you have a God story? If you do, award-winning journalist turned author Jennifer Skiff wants it for her upcoming book God Stories: Modern Day Encounters with the Divine. The book is a compilation of short stories drawn from a diverse range of religions and cultures that have illuminated an individual’s faith or helped shape their belief system.

“A God Story is something that happens to you that is so profound it confirms your belief in the existence of a Divine Power. It is when you receive personal proof that God exists,” says Skiff.

“Eighty-six percent of the world’s population believes in a Divine power and there’s a reason for that. I’m finding that most people are hesitant to share their story at first but once they do, they are often relieved. Many say they were afraid to tell their story because they didn’t think anyone would believe them,” says Skiff. Skiff came up with the idea for the book after having several epiphanies herself.

People who have a story they’re willing to share are invited to submit it at the website The criteria for submission is that the story must be true and must have happened to the person who is submitting it. If the story is chosen for the book, Ms. Skiff will interview the contributor and then edit the story to meet the book’s format.

Jennifer Skiff is an investigative correspondent who has spent fourteen years traveling the world for CNN and CNN International News. Skiff currently splits her time between homes in London, Australia and America.

Harmony Books, a division of Crown Publishing at Random House was top bidder for the book that recently went to auction in New York.

Jennifer will be in London from October 28 – November 14th and is available as a radio guest. Talk back has been extremely successful on this topic in Australia this month. Please contact Jennifer directly by e-mail, for an interview or any additional information. Please include a phone number and she will contact you within an hour. Thank you for your consideration.
