Christian radio station rapped over unChristian broadcasts
Comment Email Print
 London-based Premier Christian Radio was given a "yellow card" by the Radio Authority yesterday, for several breaches of programme rules including derogatory comments on other faiths. Premier said it has now introduced "rigorous measures" to prevent any offensive material being broadcast in future. Among the seven complaints upheld by the authority, was one instance when a preacher described the Koran and the holy books of Hindus and Buddhists as "full of superstition and absurdities". On another occasion, a speaker on the station claimed it was a "crazy idea" that homosexuals could be good Christians. The watchdog's programme code does not allow religious beliefs to be denigrated or attacked. Answering some of the complaints, the station pointed out its Christian audience would not have been offended by what was said. The regulator rejected this defence. The authority said it would be monitoring future broadcasts from Premier.
