We have a Winner: Cardinal Keith O'Brien

We have a Winner.

A week ago (April 16) my Blog asked who would take the Easter Number One Spot for Religion.

I predicted Cardinal Keith O'Brien (The original Blog is unchanged from the 16 April).

And there he is this morning as Number Three front page story on the BBC News website (and only there):

'The leader of the Catholic Church in Scotland, Cardinal Keith O'Brien, will use his Easter message later to attack 'aggressive secularism' '.

Well, at the BBC's Opus Dei desk that's just what they want to hear. No messages of love or peace. They want an attack and Rottweiler O'Brien is their man. The Press Release was sitting on their desk ready for this morning - no need to wait for the sermon itself: after all, who will be there?

The Archbishop of Canterbury is nowhere to be seen.

There is only one other religious story that I can see this morning, in The Observer:

'Protests on John Paul Beatification. Sex abuse controversy refuses to go away as Catholics prepare for ceremony in Rome'

Blame it on aggressive secularists, I say.
