Merry Isa-mas and a Happy New Niqab
Cranmer is appalled by such selective recollection. This is a year in which Islam has dominated the news agenda, not mere trivial matters of clothing. So why has C4 not chosen Christians to present programmes about its origins, its theology, its politics, or its prophet? Why does C4 not commission a series of purposely provocative Eid programmes to investigate its claims?
Jesus is one of Islam’s prophets – they call him Isa. He was born of Mary, and worked miracles, but there was no crucifixion, and no resurrection, because he was not Immanuel, not the promised Messiah, not the Son of God, and manifestly not the Saviour of the World. Channel 4 is content with the symbolic blasphemy and insult to the nation’s Christian population, but God forbid that it should ever offend the Muslims.
