Cum Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc
Slackers spend more time on Facebook, therefore Facebook causes people to be slackers? Well, quite. In other news, all mackrel are fish, all fish live under water, therefore if I order kippers it won't rain.

There's about as much evidence for King Arthur as there is for that Jesus fellow. And both claimed they'd be back one day. Let's see who gets here first; my money's on the Brit!
Incidentally, Bernard Cornwell wrote a pretty decent version of the King Arthur story. It's called The Winter King.
REX QVONDAM REXQVE FVTVRVS!
Oh dear. If ever a phrase was code for "it's rubbish", then "This is aimed not at adults, this is aimed at people who are 13 to 16," must be it.
If you make a comment like that, you're aware that adults think your product is ridiculous and/or stupid, and you implicitly assume that teenagers have lower standards of judgement. And then you're well on your way to being those bank executives from the Natwest adverts.
Quick poll: Has anyone here ever met a teenager who couldn't tell when he/she was being patronised?
"...there is nothing that could damage their minds..."
Perhaps that's the problem; what's the point of assembling small children in a church if you're *not* planning to damage their minds by filling them up with a faith they're too young to be able to analyse rationally?
That said, it's their church and they can do what they like with it; they were right to give no reason in the initial rejection, because they shouldn't have to justify the decision.
Tim: The three episodes RTD wrote last season were the first one (space rhinos!), the ridiculous one with the flying cars stuck in traffic, and the three-part finale where the Doctor turns into Dobby the House elf. Hardly gripping viewing.
Meanwhile, the best episode was the one with the weeping angels, written by Steven Moffat from Coupling. Can't we have him instead of RTD and the girl from that ep instead of Catherine Tate?
