Bishop criticises BBC for 'crucifixion not bad' interview


The BBC has been criticised by a bishop for interviewing an “outspoken Marxist”, who will claim that the crucifixion of Christ “wasn’t as bad as it’s been painted”.

According to the Daily Telegraph, BBC Radio 4 will broadcast the interview with University of Manchester professor Terry Eagleton later this month.

The Bishop of Durham, Tom Wright, told the paper: “You would think that the BBC would let Christianity have a free run in the run-up to Easter, rather than handing the microphone to a Marxist.”
