Christianity gets less sensitive treatment than other religions admits BBC chief
by Paul Revoir
BBC director-general Mark Thompson has claimed Christianity is treated with far less sensitivity than other religions because it is 'pretty broad shouldered'.
He suggested other faiths have a 'very close identity with ethnic minorities', and were therefore covered in a far more careful way by broadcasters.
But he also revealed that producers had to consider the possibilities of 'violent threats' instead of polite complaints if they pushed ahead with certain types of satire.
