I think Life of Brian doesn't mock Christians (in particular).
The movie specifically has Brian deny at every opportunity that he is a messiah.
If people consider him to be one anyway how can you claim the movie is mocking a religion when the messiah denies he even is one?

And while people want to ban Life of Brian they allow "musicians" to call for the murder of police officers and politicians all in the name of artistic freedom...

The other annoying trait of many films is that they have happy endings. I do like a nice ending every so often, but 90% of Hollywood films have a happy ending, so you can pretty much guess what will happen. Just for once I'd love to see a truly nasty bad guy actually get the girl and give the hero a good kicking.

-Joe King

Read L'Morte De Arthur- the first Arthurian legends put into book form. Of course you've all heard of it-- there's four ft. tall, grotesque men fighting a bunch of monsters with nasty looking women and of course, my favorite part, our hero is defeated by his own son in the end. ha! bad guy- even though he dies- gets the best of our beloved Arthur.
