Nope, nor alarm clocks either apparently; they all have whacking great Plasma TV’s though that are turned on 24 hours a day. How do we know this? Well Channel 4 are planning to broadcast the first call to prayer for them so they don’t miss out during Ramadan. Allah alone knows how they all found their way to prayers this morning or yesterday or the day before, without those diligent chaps at Channel 4 helping them out.
So what is this gimmicky piece of crap all about? Erm… it’s supposed to be inclusive and to raise our ex Christian peasants awareness of the privations that the Religion of Peace puts itself through in praise of God on all of our behalves.
Christians used to do something similar once upon a time, it was called Lent, I wonder if any Muslims have heard of it or wish their consciousness of it raised? No, I doubt it too. There is only one God and we all wearily know by now what his name is, don’t we boys and girls?
The only remnant left in public memory of lent is Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day, now considered a treat not a privation. Ah well, civilisations rise and fall after all…
A.N. Wilson eviscerates the whole farago here.
No doubt we can look forward to a nice little clip of some top class Campanology coming from a beautiful English country church every Sunday morning around 9am from now on Channel 4 can’t we?
