This is genuinely a fascinating discussion of religion between members of the Church of England, the clergy, and members of Monty Python. The focus is on the movie "Life of Brian". It's just over 24 mins long but well worth watching.

What we have here is two groups that are firmly intrenched in their beliefs and they're attempting to be civil at the same time they're taking rude pot-shots at each other. It's clear they deeply despise the other groups' positions but like your average sophisticated Englishman they're at least attempting to give the feeling of being receptive. This is, in my opinion, the correct way to debate any topic.

The point of contention is the movie, which in my opinion is funny, but very boorish in it's treatment of religion in general.
