Brian Draper, in Southampton, Associate lecturer at the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity

And in the Big News today from a Faith Perspective, isn’t the series Friends just brilliant! Friends are exactly the same as the Invisible Magic Friend, except that they exist.

  1. OT , I was struck by how many characteristics this shares with a TftD, albeit probably some of the better ones.

    From a promising start, we get onto , on the one hand, on the other platitudes. Bonhoeffer is in there, Life of Brian quote, and the Jesus reference feels shoehorned. Basically, gasp, Cummings is neither evil nor a saint. It is, you’ll be relieved to be told , more complex than that.

    Don’t let that put you off the Byline Times, BTW.

    1. ‘Mote and beam, my dear fellow, mote and beam!’ I hadn’t come across Byline Times, AndyM; thanks for that. Worth keeping an eye on. Yes, that could have come straight out of the playbook of some of the current lot on TftD: a string of obvious statements, which could have been made by people of ‘all faiths or none’, to quote another cliche, with a religious reference thrown in to try to meet the brief.

      In Brian Draper’s case today, we didn’t even get a relevant religious reference, just a quote from some random apologist. I wonder if the requirement to write an essay about ‘Friends’ is on the curriculum at the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity. Today’s effort might scrape a beta minus.
