Sing Fat Lady, Sing!

Will the uproar about Jerry Springer - The Opera ever end? Now a BBC producer has resigned after saying it offended his Christian beliefs.

A lot of people do bits about Jesus and God in comedy. Generally I object to that because it's been done a lot in the past, but in this case of this guy, at least he watched the broadcast and he was willing to give something up in his protest, as opposed to the halfwits that stood out in the street complaining without having seen it.

Having said that, it seems that he was quite happy to work for a company who put Jim Davidson on the telly regularly of a Friday evening. So racism, xenophobia, sexism and homophobia is fine, but portray Jesus in a nappy and you're off down the brew?
