Like most all media

the BBC treats traditional religion with patronization, contempt, sloppiness or outright hatred.

The opening scene of an episode of Foyle's War shows a man praying the rosary in what is, despite attempts at devotional clutter, an Anglican church. Then he goes to confession and confesses that has broken the Sixth Commandment, to which the priest replies, "You have killed someone?"

Unless this is a Super High CofE establishment, in the Catholic numbering the Sixth is adultery.

In a previous episode, the reaction of a hospital nun to news of a mother who attempted suicide is nothing more than shock at her mortal sinfulness.

Liberals think religious people are predictable cartoons.

You know who are predictable cartoons?

One guess.

The Orthodox, the Armenians and Copts and most Lutherans also have the same numbering system.
But you're probably right, given that this is an English program and all these others are exotic-exotics, not the domestic-exotics (the Catholics).
