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.
Honestly, I thought for a moment he was practising stand up. But no, it turns out he's not. Of course, the reason that Cleese doesn't know where these Christian doctrines comes from is that he hasn't actually properly read the Bible (at least it would appear that way since the alternative – that he had read it but just ignored what he read – would make him look even worse).
What Cleese may have missed in that Bible is the words that Christ said (which one hopes He would recognise as His own),
Matthew 19:4-6 Jesus answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, 5 and said, 'Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? 6 So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
Friends, whenever anyone runs the nonsense argument that Cleese has here these are the words to give them. Jesus spoke very clearly about human sexuality.
Cleese should stick to this kind of religious commentary:
