Blessed are the cheesemakers?


“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”
       Jesus Christ
       In the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5:9


“Ah, blessed are the peacemakers – Colt, Marlin, Winchester, and now Obama, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, brought to you by Alfred Nobel, inventor of dynamite and smokeless gun powder, son of the man who taught the world to mine harbors and shipping channels.”
       Newspaper columnist Casey Jones
       In his Salt Lake Journal Tribune column, Oct. 16, 2009


GREGORY (having trouble hearing Jesus): “What was that?”
MAN: “I think it was ‘Blessed are the cheesemakers.’”
MRS. GREGORY: “What’s so special about the cheesemakers?”
GREGORY: “Well, obviously, it’s not meant to be taken literally. It refers to any manufacturers of dairy products.” 
       The Monty Python movie Life of Brian (1979)
       In the Sermon on the Mount scene
