The Archer enemy.

Byline: By Matt Withers Wales on Sunday

It wouldn't be Christmas without an intervention from a lesser-decorated man of God - Stephen Green, the director of Carmarthenshire-based pressure group Christian Voice and unofficial spokesman for the world's one billion Christians.

Mr Green, pictured above, regular readers will recall, not only led the protests against Jerry Springer: The Musical, but also claimed single-handed responsibility for England beating Pakistan in the Test Series earlier this year.

This festive period, however, he has decided to wish peace and goodwill to all men.

Only joking - his Christmas message is the usual fulmination, this time at that most dangerous and subversive of institutions, plodding Radio 4 soap The Archers, which apparently featured its first civil partnership earlier this month.

'Personally, seeing a picture of actors Andrew Wincott and Stephen Kennedy dressed up in wedding suits holding their glasses of fizz made me feel quite queasy,' says Mr Green, who often seems to find himself preoccupied with homosexuality.

'It brought home the enormity of the nauseating pretence and perversion of a real wedding which every 'civil partnership' is.

'I for one will be avoiding The Archers. I prefer art which edifies, elevates and encourages to that which debases, disgusts and depresses. In any case, just before dinner is the wrong time to be rushing to the loo to be sick.'

And a very Merry Christmas to you too, Mr Green.
