Biblical Brother

As silly as Andy Duncan, head of Channel 4, was to try and defend Big Brother as ‘a Christian parable for our times’, you can almost see where he’s coming from. There are stories of transition, triumphs of perceived good over perceived evil, and of personal growth in between the bickering and fighting. But that was never the reaction he was going to get from a religious gathering, who are stuck in tradition and their old ways (which is not, by definition, a bad thing, but that’s a whole other argument).

But despite all that, the Times article on the subject is very good. It compares Biblical quotes with quotes from Big Brother contestants. Tabloidesque and faintly ridiculous, but also very funny.
