Reason #28 why Communications degrees should have higher standards

Dear Ms. British reporter, when someone is famously Catholic, it is really not in your best interest to make fun of the ashes on his forehead on Ash Wednesday on a live broadcast...

Oddly enough, it's the UK that has religious ed as a requirement to graduate. Think maybe it's time to rework that curriculum?

  • Considering there are Catholics everywhere, I'd say it's a safe bet they do...

  • What were the other 27 reasons?
    I was raised Catholic, and had a blank moment yesterday when I saw a woman with the ashes on her. It took me a minute to realize what day it was.
    But hey, I was a finance major. I don't go on TV for any reason.

  • If she graduated (or whatever the term is) from the British School system, with its religious ed requirement, then I would say that she needs a refresher course, maybe some diversity training? LOL. Heck, it doesn't matter where she went to school, she should still know about Ash Wed. She needs to be retrained!

  • I saw this. How silly. It is refreshing to know that there are just as many idiots in the media over there as there are here.
