The one downside with scrapping 'Thought for the Day' would be that the Twitter feed TFTDAbridged would also have to stop.
Its mission statement reads:
Every day the BBC's flagship news programme Today is interrupted by a couple of minutes of religious moralising. I can get it down to 140 characters or less.
Here's a recent sample:
28/01/2015 - Rev Dr Giles Fraser
Greece's debts should be written off. Jesus says so.
26/01/2015 - Rev Dr Jane Leach
I went for a walk but felt bad about it because I didn't connect with the community. Walks are only good with other people.
21/01/2015 - John Bell
I met some poor people.
17/01/2015 - Rev Roy Jenkins
The two men who climbed El Capitan and some men detained at Guantanamo Bay are totally like Jesus.
15/01/2015 - Rt Rev Graham James
The British Museum has foreign stuff. I used to be scared of Germans. St Francis of Assisi went to Egypt and met Muslims.
27/12/2014 - Rev Lucy Winkett
I really like live singing. Also, Jesus. And Brian Blessed.
15/12/2014 Rev Professor David Wilkinson
Sports Personality of the Year and the X-Factor winner have been announced. It's important to include people. Also, Jesus.
Much better than the real thing!
