Terry Jones, founding member of the Monty Python troupe, sums up the history of Christianity:
Christ was preaching peace and love and humanity. Then for 2,000 years we’ve had people torturing and killing each other because they don’t agree about exactly how he said it.
Jones was speaking on the occasion of the release of a new DVD edition of Life of Brian, which includes the previously deleted “Otto” scene featuring a “Jewish Nazi” sporting a mingled swastika and Star of David symbol. How long do you think it will be before William Kristol and Norman Podhoretz start demanding that we bomb England?
