All religions have parts of scripture that make us uncomfortable. Religious extremists focus exclusively on these passages. We have to acknowledge this if we're going to have an honest debate about the origins of extremism.

The Greek debt crisis, doesn't it just remind you of Jesus' redemption of humanity? Yes I knew it would. That's because you're a Western, capitalist protestant. If you were from the Greek Orthodox Church you'd view it completely differently. Isn't it just amazing the insights you get from theology?

What does the Invisible Magic Friend have to say about the European Union, the Eurozone, the refugee crisis, treaty reform and European identity? Well, I'm going to tell you what he has to say, and it's a lot, and it's really, really, relevant.

I think when you hear what the Invisible Magic Friend has to say, you will be amazed, dazzled, blown over. His words possess such insight, such wisdom, such unparalleled clarity, that you will be convinced that when it comes to Invisible Magic Friends, he really is the very best Invisible Magic Friend you could ever ask for.

I have so much to tell you about what the Invisible Magic Friend has to say on Europe that three minutes is scarcely time to do justice to the subject. Every single thing that I tell you will stick in your mind forever because it's so important.

So here goes, here's what the news has been interrupted for, here's what the Invisible Magic Friend has to tell you all about Europe that will change everything.

Drat, have we run out of time? Oh, well, maybe tomorrow...

The Church of England used to be a flag waving, patriotic, state run Church. It thought it was right to do that but really it was wrong. It's now become more interested in the opinions of the Invisible Magic Friend. You can trust me on this, it's got it right now.

Happy Nearly Summer Solstice everyone! This reminds me of baptism, just one of the things that makes Christianity so brilliant and so relevant to astronomical events!
