BBC Show: Extremist Christians Behead Moderate Muslim

I'd laugh, but apparently the show isn't a comedy. Surreal:

A recent episode of the series Bonekickers displayed what many are calling graphic images of a moderate Muslim being beheaded by a supposed “extremist Christian”...

Viewers were apparently shocked when actor Paul Nichollswas was seen using a sword to hack off a moderate Muslim’s head in an unprovoked attack.

Nichollswas plays a member of the fictional group called the White Wings Alliance. The fictitious group is far-Right evangelical group of Christians inspired by the Crusades.

No more tongue-in-cheek "Presbyterians Behead Hostage" headlines I guess.

Honestly, can the BBC be any more idiotic? What's so disturbing about this is that a fair number of lefties actually believe their own shallow equivocations between religious groups. To them, Christians rhetorically damning non-believers to hell is just as scary as Muslim terrorists actually sending them there.

Then again, it could have been a coldly calculated move at self preservation. A plot involving Christians killing Muslims is sure to raise a protest. But a plot where Muslims murder Christians will get you death threats from the religion of irony.

Meanwhile, four men in actual danger of being beheaded by 'rebels' searching for an independent Presbyterian state in the southern Philippines have been released.

Thanks to Martin.
