Odd viewer complaints...

So, apparently, Coronation Street got a bit of flak for comments made by Ken Barlow (a fictional character) in Sunday's episode.

The thing that leaves me doing some serious head-scratching is: The broadcast watchdog said it received 23 complaints over Ken Barlow referring to the faith as "superstition" and God as a "supernatural being".

I mean, yeah, I can understand some of my fellow believers being a bit miffed about Christianity being described as a superstition. I don't exactly like that myself, although I don't get all up in arms and complain to OfCom about it, but okay, fair 'nuff.

But isn't the whole point of God that he's a supernatural being? I mean, how could anybody find someone saying that in any way objectionable?

    The Cabin Pressure fan in me is taking great delight in addressing Sarah as "Skip," since she spends most of the time behind the wheel of the boat…

  • Maybe I'm too literal-minded...

    ...but I feel very strongly that a place with a name like Horsey Mere really ought to have actual, y'know, horses...

    May the Fourth be with you!
