BBC Censors 'Offensive' Song Lyrics

The BBC forces singer to change lyrics containing the word "Jesus":

BBC management banned singer Eliza Doolittle from using the word 'Jesus' in a performance of her love song 'Walking on Water'. She was forced to change the lyric from "Sometimes I wish I was Jesus, I'd get my Air Max on and run across the sea for you" to "Sometimes I wish it was easy..." when she appeared on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Radio 2.

The Islamic BBC doesn't give a crap about Christians or their sensitivities. While they may be pretending to protect all religious figures equally, I have no doubt their real agenda is to further prop the defense of Muhammad. Their ultimate goal is to protect Islamic sensibilities, even if they have to put on a guise protecting other religions.

Banning not so innocent lyrics has happened before, of course. Try and guess which offensive lyrics The Ed Sullivan show attempted to ban during this 1967 performance:

45 - 50 years ago drugs and sexual gyrations were taboo. Hell, even into the 70's television programs refused to show toilets or double beds in their programs. Today, the word "Jesus" is offensive.

How far we have come.

2 I found it funny what you said about the 70's TV, I recently ran across a channel lastnight [MEtv] that plays all the shows from the '70's, it was hilarious, the things we found funny and or shocking back then compared to now. I couldn't help thinking about it for the entire time I was watching Get Smart, Wonder Woman etc. and here you have blogged about it.

3 So now the old children's song will be, "Easy loves the little children, all the children of the world, red and yellow black and white easy loves them all alike, easy loves the little children of the world."

4 yeah, all those "controversial" topics of the 70's shows, like All in the Family, and Maud, etc.-- they talked about menopause ("the change of life" they called it!) and it was a huge ordeal...
