The Archers civil partnership attacked
The radio soap features two characters, Adam and Ian, in a long-running gay partnership who are officially tying the knot in this evening’s episode. Stephen Green, the National Director of Stephen Green’s Voice (formerly Christian Voice), described the storyline as “nauseating”.
Personally, seeing a picture of actors Andrew Wincott and Stephen Kennedy dressed up in wedding suits holding their glasses of fizz made me feel quite queasy. It brought home the enormity of the nauseating pretence and perversion of a real wedding which every ‘civil partnership’ is.
My hope is that the remaining faithful listeners of ‘The Archers’, those who have endured the plaintive politically-correct story-lines of the last few years will at last wake up and find something less grating to listen to.
MWW’s advice to people such as Green who are nauseated by the thought of gay sex: don’t think about it so much. Jesus Christ, that man is positively obsessed!
