  3. Does television make religion seem good or bad? What kind of influence does television have?

    The vicar is very enthusiastic about the birth of Jesus, Son of God. This program definitely shows religion in a good way. It also shows that the church is modern. We know this because the vicar is a woman and she has an Oasis advent calendar. The program is humorous as well as knowledgeable. I asked a religious Christian person for their opinion and they agreed with me in saying Mr. Bean showed religion to be bad and uninteresting, and The Vicar Of Dibley in showing religion in a good way. In conclusion the vicar of Dibley shows good religious views unlike Mr.

  7. Christianity in the Media

    The most enjoyable and interesting pieces of media were television programmes and films. Especially Field of Dreams and Father Ted. These are of both types of material.

    They believe that this is an inevitable consequence of the spread if education and science. Not only do they think that the decline of religion is inevitable, it is desirable. Many western European countries have seen a rapid decline in traditional religion in the post World War 2 period, especially under the influence of liberalism and humanism. For example, in the Netherlands before the war approximately half of the population were Roman Catholic and the other half were Protestants, with a small percentage of Jews and other minorities.

    If programmes are categorised in such method there will be a range of religious programmes aimed at different people. One of these is the 'Vicar of Dibley', this is a religious comedy programme structured around a female vicar of a small village.

The programme I saw was basically about a couple getting married. It was to be a simple wedding but due to it being a humorous programme many aspects was changed to look funny.

He talks of the concept of hell and how religious institutions use this concept to scare people into doing the right thing.
