The Last Farewell – The Long Interview with Bill Whiteford

This is my farewell gift to Scotland!  – An interview broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland this morning at 8:30.  It’s called the long interview because having 30 minutes to discuss on radio is unusual.  I found Bill Whiteford to be one of the best interviewers I have ever faced – probing and challenging without being rude and aggressive.   We discussed a range of subjects, the … Continue reading The Last Farewell – The Long Interview with Bill Whiteford

Shake on It -Engaging with Transgender People

Several people contacted me about the BBC programme ‘Shake on It” – Shake On It – A Surprising BBC Programme on Trans and Identity.   The trouble is that if you are not in the UK you can’t view it.  I understand that at some point it will be on YouTube but until then you can get it by clicking the link below. Again to give credit … Continue reading Shake on It -Engaging with Transgender People

It’s Easter – I’m Offended!

  I am offended.  In fact I am more than offended. I feel angry, upset and quite nauseated. And it’s all to do with Easter. No I am not offended at Cadbury’s leaving the word Easter out of some of its headings. Nor at I offended at Tesco’s Good Friday beer advert. I expect crass commercialism from Tesco and they never fail to deliver. I … Continue reading It’s Easter – I’m Offended!

Songs of Praise, the Island of Lewis, Donald Trump and the Religion of the BBC

It was wonderful to hear that Songs of Praise, the flagship BBC religious programme, was to come from the Island of Lewis – the home island of my wife and apparently more significantly the home island of President-Elect Donald Trumps mother.    I looked forward to hearing some Gaelic psalm singing, traditional hymns and perhaps a couple of Celtic praise songs. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08bb6rg/songs-of-praise-isle-of-lewis So what did … Continue reading Songs of Praise, the Island of Lewis, Donald Trump and the Religion of the BBC

Should Smacking be made Illegal?

This is my latest article in Christian Today http://www.christiantoday.com/article/richard.dawkins.prayer.row.5.things.it.taught.me.about.religion.in.britain/79717.htm Who would have thought it? The Church of England finally trending on Twitter! What has caused the fuss? This simple tweet got the twitterati all in a tizz. Some of Dawkins’ 1.36 million followers found it all a bit much. Is it insulting to offer a prayer for Professor Dawkins? Is it sarcasm and mocking? Rev … Continue reading The Dawkins Prayer Row and what it tells us about Christianity in the UK

What the Lord’s Prayer Cinema Controversy tell us about Religion in Britain Today

Lord’s Prayer Article in CT This is my latest article on CT – .  I also appeared on the BBC Scotland show  Call Kaye The Lord works in mysterious ways.

An Open Letter to C of S Evangelicals in the light of the C of S/Humanist Debacle

An Open Letter to C of S Evangelicals   Dear Brothers and Sisters, I am writing to ask for your forgiveness and for your help.  For your forgiveness because once again it looks as though I have come across both as a spokesman for the evangelicals in the C of S and also as a critic of the C of S.  Neither role is one … Continue reading An Open Letter to C of S Evangelicals in the light of the C of S/Humanist Debacle
