"Yes, Prime Minister" Gets Liberalism Well

My buddy John Bell loves the TV show Yes, Minister and its spin-off Yes, Prime Minister. It’s a satirical take on British politics from the 70’s or 80’s. I must admit, it’s brilliantly hilarious. John recently showed me an episode – The Bishop’s Gambit – where the Prime Minister has to elect a bishop from the Church of England into the House of Lords. He has two choices and one of them (the prime choice) is a theological liberal. I was blown away at how bang-on they nailed theological liberalism. They also do a fine job at showing how the church/state relations in England cause damage. As a Baptist, I think this episode is fantastic!! Watch and laugh!
***Note: The second video is the one with the clip where they discuss liberalism as well as some of the third, but it’s worth watching all four if you can.

    Terribly funny; and terribly sad.

    But…terribly funny nonetheless.
