South African cardinal: BBC ‘propaganda’ harms society

August 23, 2017

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is undermining Christian morality with a consistent propaganda campaign, charges Cardinal Wilfrid Napier of Durban, South Africa.

“Hardly a day passes without promoting abortion, homosexuality, etc.,” the cardinal said of BBC in a Twitter comment. He charged that BBC programming is designed to persuade viewers that “evil is good.”

Cardinal Napier responded quickly to a comment that he was not required to pay for BBC service. “But I do have to pay!” he tweeted. “Each time the propaganda is repeated I know more people are corrupted, myself included.”

    I stand with Cardinal Napier of South Africa. Why not join and or start a 54 Day Novena for conversion of those governments/people who want to force immorality on other countries.

    This is so true. In order to limit my media consumption, BBC website is my only secular news source and it is continuously obvious they have a propaganda agenda of the sort that Cardinal Napier says.
