Doctor Who as religious lesson???

While doing research for an article I'm writing (my job is so cool), I discovered this article. It starts off like this:

A CARDIFF priest loves Dr Who so much he is preaching to his congregation through the Time Lord.

St Paul’s Church, in Grangetown, Cardiff, was used as a location for an episode of the first series of Doctor Who starring the ninth Doctor played by Christopher Eccleston.

And parish priest, Father Ben Andrews, 32, says he loves the cult TV show so much he thought a themed evening would go down well with the youngsters.

He said: “I love the series and it has such a great following that we couldn’t resist doing something for young people on a Dr Who theme.

“We will be looking at the idea of Jesus as a Lord of time and showing who Jesus was and the different images of him throughout time.

Read the rest here.

I am resisting mightily the urge to make snarky remarks about coopting Doctor Who in the name of God...but it's really hard....
