Brian’s frustrations echo those of Jesus himself, who provoked his listeners to think for themselves (e.g., Matthew 18:12) and complained on occasion that his followers’ minds were too dull (Mark 7:18). A key difference, though, is that Brian discourages the formation of any sort of movement, whereas Jesus encourages the formation of his own sect. Where Brian tells the crowds to “f—off,” Jesus stays and teaches them because he is filled with compassion (Mark 6:32–34).
