Tatchell's hatchet swings wide

Damian Thompson has seen Peter Tatchell's forthcoming C4 documentary on the Pope -- to be broadcast Monday night -- and finds it full of schoolboy errors. And so crude that it's way off-target. And he notes:

Tatchell mostly interviews people who share his views, or represent those of a liberal lobby within the Catholic Church. One of the few exceptions is a woman called Fiona O’Reilly from the mainstream group Catholic Voices, who – alone among Tatchell’s interviewees – is not allowed to finish her sentences without being interrupted.
