According to Terry Jones (of Python fame, not incendiary bigot fame), the glorious Monty Python's Life of Brian would be too controversial if made now.
At the time religion seemed to be on the back burner and it felt like kicking a dead donkey. It has come back with a vengeance and we'd think twice about making it now."
While most people with religious belief would probably see the funny side, you'd expect Fundamentalist Prudes (note, Fundies are not the same as Evangelicals) and Hate-Filled Homophobes to come out in protest. Complete with placards telling us "God hates .........."
Anyway, those people just remind of this scene from the film.
