True Meaning

Thanks to Ben Sternke for this uplifting and theologically helpful take on the meaning of Easter. Well, at least it has more spiritual content than the BBC this year.

Though Radio Wales rang up, asking me to condemn football matches being played on Easter Sunday, and seemed non-plussed when I replied that as every Sunday was a "little Easter", either I had to condemn Sunday football per se or come off all hypocritical and throw away my Sky Sports subscription. Added to which I wasn't happy that Christians should be presented as killjoys in a season of Celebration.

And, given the state of religious broadcasting this Easter, the fans of Aston Villa really don't want to be denied the only miracle on offer on TV on Sunday, do they?
