John Cleese Despises Christianity

Excellent religious argument from John Cleese aside, this is a fascinating time capsule of England in the late 1970s. When a comedy film with a religious setting could be dragged across the coals by the media and the establishment. But it’s the Pythons’ argument that is the meat of the clip. Cleese and Palin ask legitimate, searching questions about how religion has become so authoritative and right-wing, and receive authoritative and right-wing non-answers from defenders who do more to ridicule and obfuscate than elucidate or teach.
