Beyer and Reid enjoy day in The Sun
In accordance with MWW prophecy The Sun today miraculously produced a story out of thin air by phoning up “Bishop” Michael Reid of the Christian Congress for Traditional Values, and Massah John Beyer of Mediawatch-UK to ask their opinion of a Channel 4 magic show.
The Magic of Jesus features magicians Barry Jones and Stuart McLeod reproducing New Testament “miracles” such as raising a corpse from the dead, curing a blind person, feeding 5,000 football fans with five loaves of bread and two fishes, walking on water, and making a virgin pregnant.
The insurance-salesman-cum-bishop mustered some suitable indignation for Sun readers to enjoy:
The big difference between a couple of tricksters performing illusions and Our Lord’s miracles is that Jesus actually healed people, raised the dead and forgave sins.
Maybe these two fraudsters could try being crucified to see if they can rise three days later.
What a fantastic idea, Bish! You won’t complain when it’s on Channel 4’s Easter schedule next year, will you?
Massah John Beyer also muttered something about causing offence, but his words were too overwhelmingly dull to quote here.
Good to see the Mercedes-driving bish back in the papers though. He must have been starting to feel neglected.
