I like Big Brother

I like Big Brother and am looking forward to watching another [choose an approrpriate collective noun] of freaks cavort, giggle and ultimately self-destruct under the unrelenting pressure.

The thing is... I find Big Brother funny... Olly and I enjoy sitting down and watching the folk doing what they do... although some scenes are best avoided!

I also find it thought-provoking... why? because it is about people. BB is an extreme microcosm of life... They have picked extreme stereotypes... charicatures, you could say, but these folk... for all their brokeness and failings and genuine freakishness... are real people.

...and these real people need God's love and grace just as much as you or I.

Its easy to condemn and dismiss the show and the people... but there is real worth in acceptance and understanding. We are all the whosoever!
