Same Old, Same Old

The Guardian‘s Nick Cohen has written a powerful piece on the “Weimar of the Aegean” which is well worth reading in full, but this detail caught my attention:

One can say with certainty that old alliances between extreme political and extreme religious movements are reviving. Hence, last month Christian fanatics and neo-Nazi…protested against a “blasphemous” play with a homosexual theme in Athens. The theatre’s management duly pulled it. Greek television cut a scene from Downton Abbey that featured a gay kiss. No one can explain why but a country that censors Downton Abbey on any grounds other than literary taste is in grave trouble.
