GALHA letter to the press

GALHA letter sent to the Independent in response to a report about the Alpha Course.

Dear Sir,

I wonder if the cinema ads for the Alpha Course will tell potential subscribers the whole story of what they will be letting themselves in for if the sign up? I wonder if they’ll include the homophobia that the course promotes, or the fact that this is a very fundamentalist take on Christianity? Will it tell cinema-goers about the speaking in tongues bit and the possession by the holy spirit weekend that occasionally has people rolling on the floor and barking like dogs? We’ll be looking out for these ads at our local Odeon with a view to a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority unless they tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Yours faithfully,

George Broadhead
