Jeremy Hardy Bores the Pants off the Nation

I am trying to imagine a scenario in which the BBC gives half an hour's prime air time to someone promoting one of the world's great religions. Not just to say a prayer or read a service, but actively to evangelise. This never happens yet Jeremy Hardy is/has been ranting for half an hour against all religions, making himself offensive to Christians, Jews, Muslims and all other 'faith communities' as they are so revoltingly called nowadays. I'm beginning to think that Charles Moore was right when he wrote recently that nowadays it is the atheists who are the evangelists.

Hardy's worst crime though was that this programme was not remotely funny, raising not the ghost of a smile chez sofa where we like a laugh and regard pretty much anything as fair game.
