Blasphemy for the Day: Orpheus and Eurydice

A response to the BBC’s Thought for the DayYou don’t have to be a believer to enjoy a day of rest.

I can’t be bothered to exhume the dry bones of self-serving dogma, or showcase more dangerous idiots trying to replace democracy with revealed truth. Not today. Instead here is one the most haunting Greek myths – Orpheus and Eurydice – narrated by Michael Gambon and a dog from the Jim Henson workshop. It’s difficult to hear Gambon’s voice and not think of The Singing Detective.
