A Dilettante of note: John Cleese…
The Christian Institute brings us the news:
Christians who believe that marriage is between one man and one woman are practising “a kind of Christianity that I don’t think would be recognised by Christ”, according to a controversial claim by John Cleese.
The veteran actor made the comment during a BBC Radio Merseyside interview in which he also criticised Christian opposition to abortion.
The 71-year-old actor, best known for his roles in Monty Python and Fawlty Towers, said: “Some of the fundamentalist Christians seem to be performing or practising a kind of Christianity that I don’t think would be recognised by Christ.
“I don’t think Christ said a lot about abortion or even about single sex marriage.
“I don’t know where all these Christian doctrines came from but that had nothing to do with what Christ ever said in the Bible.”…
If he actually took the time and bothered to find out (or ask someone suitably qualified), then he too would know that Christian doctrine is indeed grounded in Christ and derived teachings of the Bible!
The rest of his rather unqualified, anaemic and weak ‘attack’, which is more drivel than anything else is here.
Unless of course it is all more comedy from the man…
Arthur! Arthur Pewty! are you a man or a mouse?!?
