Last year BBC presented a 3 part documentary series called The road to Santiago de Compostela (this Youtube movie is part 2)
What is your opinion? By reading the comments for this Youtube video, it seems many dislike the british famed people who participate. They are 6 people who walks, and the topics are philosophical, religious, spiritual, reflections etc.
I walked the Camino two times, and I call myself a "born again christian". Listening to them, especially the anglican priest, who represent "christianity, it griefs me, for their lack of understanding the gospel, as well for the shallowness and the ignorance displayed. And where is the humbleness and gratitude?
What do you think of the conversations and the presentation in this BBC production from the Camino in Spain?

It was totally tosh. Whatever your beliefs or otherwise. They thought 10km was a long way!

The forum rules do not allow discussion of religious views (or politics or bull fighting) as they almost always lead to a downhill spiral of arguments and insults. Exceptions are sometimes made by moderators when the discussion is deemed to be within the intent of the rules.

This post appears to invite criticism of specific religions and the belief of others.

Thanks for understanding.
