A lap dancer, a lesbian, and a lapsed Christian with a pregnant girlfriend are among the participants on the U.K.’s newest reality show, Make Me a Christian, where Christian leaders attempt to bring a group of unlikely candidates to the faith. The show’s premise is to find out if Christianity can help repair the moral fabric of British society. ‘I was pleased at first to hear the producers were trying to make Christianity accessible to people who might not usually watch religious programming,’ said Charis Gibson, senior press officer for the Evangelical Alliance. After watching the first two episodes, however, she said, ‘I’m starting to think I would prefer spending my Sunday nights being bashed repeatedly in the face with a large, leather-bound King James Version.'”

Read the full story.  I’ve not seen any of the episodes.  Is anyone else able to comment on this?

  1. Mmm not sure they would be so up for it. Wondering about Hot Fuzz and then either Deja Vu or The Pursuit of Happyness. What does anyone else think?

  2. I haven’t seen Hot Fuzz (would love to!) but Shaun of the Dead (same people) did have the odd bit in it that you may not want to put on as a church> Not sure.

  3. Hot Fuzz is good, which was what I would have suggested, but yeah, has a bit of gore in it, and a fair amount of swearing.
    Although I watched it round Tinhead’s house the other day, so I guess its up to you.
