Some of you might remember that terrible abuse of the Christian religion that was the Life of Brian.

 

And some of you might be aware that the Life of Brian was banned by a God-fearing community...among other places...

 

Quote from Wikipedia entry:  "It was also banned for eight years in the Republic of Ireland and for a year in Norway (it was marketed in Sweden as '"The film so funny that it was banned in Norway")"

 

And some of you might know some trivia about a certain actress that was in said movie and is now the mayor of said town.

 

Now, she apparently wants to abuse her power in a clear conflict of interest to persecute Christians by unbanning the terrible movie that blythely urged a generation to "always look on the bright side of life".

 

No doubt inspiring other un-Godly sources of a glib and light-hearted approach to the world that lead us down the primrose path.

Will the horror never end?

Just wanted to let you know that over the last few days I've tried to leave comments here unsuccessfully. The code at the bottom has been all screwy. It doesn't come up at all. All I see is a little image box that shows a .gif or something like that. Sorry you missed out on my witty comment about the Life of Brian movie.

John,

I can only imagine just how witty it was! Do tell!

Captcha tip: if there is no image for you to type in to prove you are not a robot...just type SOMETHING in...random bunch of letters. The screen will refresh, and it will come up with something for you to type in. Your comment will still be there...so you don't have to re-type you comment.

This blog software is a little buggy sometimes...sorry.

I'll keep that in mind. See you tomorrow over on my blog.

How sad:

"Parts of the script are still quoted at Ms Jones-Davies today, but she confessed the lines were wasted on her: "I can't remember the lines from the script now - it's nearly 30 years ago," she explained."

I suppose, being in the movie takes away a lot of the magic. Imagine not being able to engage in the joy of wanting to quote the whole film by heart!
