That's fair enough.
Now, as I was alluding to in my previous posts, I have never seen censorship of this sort on TV here. Only the very worst swear words, such worse than
the f word after 9 o clock or the f word itself before 9 o clock, for instance, are banned here, nothing like Jesus, God, Allah or anything else like
that. You often see US stars appearing on talk shows here who are like kids in a sweetshop when they realise what they can say
I have read showbiz biographies where the writers of a show would have to bargain, ludicrously, for what they could include. For example, "you can't
have a f*** there, if you remove it you can have three bloodys somewhere else in the script". That sort of nonsense.
Famously Kenny Everett was refused permission to call a character Mary Hinge because the BBC censor realised what it said if you swap the initials
round, as a joke Everett requested Cupid Stunt instead, it was approved and you Will find old sketches with this character if you look on you tube
Censorship decisions often defy any logic at all
Saying Jesus is so commonplace now it seems mad to ban it, I don't think any group really benefits from such a ban if there is one.
