“Biased” towards Christianity in a Christian country? You couldn’t make this up….
The reason Christianity is “declining” in the country is merely because the third world migration volume is spiking.

Lord Hall of Birkenhead, head of the taxpayer-funded corporation, is reportedly inviting religious leaders to join discussions about multi-faith coverage.
Ibrahim Mogra of the Muslim Council of Britain said the BBC could cover Friday prayers from a mosque, cover Eid, or children attending Koranic lessons.
The controversial move is in response to criticism the taxpayer-funded corporation delivered a disproportionate amount of programming on Christianity compared with other religions.

The BBC was criticised for delivering a biased amount of Christianity
Earlier this year, Aaqil Ahmed, head of religion and ethics at the BBC, told a House of Commons committee: “Christianity remains the cornerstone of our output and there are more hours dedicated to it than there are to other faiths.”
Lord Hall is reportedly determined to do more to represent other faiths, according to the Times.
A senior executive will also be appointed to draw up new programme ideas alongside Songs of Praise and Thought for the Day.
But the corporation has insisted a focus on the other faiths would not be at the expense of the Christian output.
A source said: “Faith is remarkably important. The BBC can and must do more to ensure that the important role faith plays is recognised and reflected in our programing.”
The BBC rejected the notion of cutting back Christianity.
While the BBC said it plans to deliver more, it rejected any notion of cutting back on Christianity.
The source added: “The BBC will do more to represent faiths across the broad, and has specifically rejected the notion of in any way diminishing what it does around Christianity.”
But the controversial plans come amid rising concerns Christianity in Britain is being overwhelmed by other religions.
A shocking two-year report found a decline in church-goers – but a rise in Islam and other faiths – was the reason for the steep decline in Christianity.
Lord Hall is determined to represent all religions.
The Church of England is now considering desperate plans, which would see churches no longer having to open their doors on a Sunday.
Numbers attending church services has fallen by 12 per cent in the past decade to less than half of the levels in the 1960s, with shocking figures showing Sunday service attendance falling to 760,000.
