Monty Python’s John Cleese launches the ‘Church of JC Capitalist’

English comedian John Cleese founded a new church on YouTube channel this Thursday to search for “huge tax advantages” while saving souls “from eternal torment.”

The Monty Python alum hilariously explored one of America’s most insidious forms of Christianity, “telly-vangelism,” by creating the Church of JC Capitalist.

Here is an important announcement: We’ve decided to found a church on this website, because we believe that even if we save just one solitary soul from eternal torment, then the founding of this church will have been worthwhile, especially as it gives us huge tax advantages.

Now we’re here to call ourselves the church of JC Capitalist because here in the United States of America, Christian teaching is of course the cornerstone of the capitalist system. Televangelists in particular are setting a fine example to us all in the accumulation of great personal wealth and illustrating the worldly rewards that real faith can bring us if we are truly humble and have good marketing skills.

Now people have said to me quite critically that Christ spoke a lot about the poor. So what is our church during about them? Well, as Christ himself so rightly said, “Blessed are the poor,” so they’re alright. They will get their reward in heaven — no need to worry about them.

Anyone at all who disagrees with us will go to hell and be tortured with red hot pointy things for ever and ever…”

Cleese ends with standard televangelist imperative:

“send money”

    I sign into my Tumblr accounts, and switch the dash from my main blog to the secondary blog, however go to Account > Choices > Customize your site, but then it just takes me towards the customization page for my main blog page. Any way to customize my secondary blog, or must i just create a second account altogether?.
