← Vicar supports Life of Brian ban

This is just stark raving bonkers but, good to see the reverend making a fool out of himself and demonstrating the irrelevance of religion once more. Pile on the ridicule I say.

From, he also says:

"If it was an unpleasant film 30 years ago, then it remains an unpleasant film 30 years later. I have not seen the film, nor have I any wish to do so."


Good job blasphemy laws in the UK have finally been repealed, just in time to get the ban lifted.

Apparently, Life of Brian was also banned from theatres in Ireland for blasphemy (a ban which was only lifted after 8 years).

It was also banned in Norway for blasphemy. Sweden marketed the film as "The film that is so funny that it was banned in Norway!"
