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?
