We are entitled to be told why the BBC treated senior religious leaders like "third rate actors who have outlived their sell-by date" - to quote the Bishop of Oxford's spokesman.
In a society increasingly facing a moral decline there is a need for greater emphasis on religious values rather than the reverse. Indignant voices have been raised opposing the BBC decision. They should be listened to carefully. The action proposed should not be embarked upon lightly and certainly not unilaterally and precipitately.
