Joke is on Religion

Joke is on Religion as Christians Laugh at Themselves
(Times Online)
Simon Jenkins, the editor of ShipofFools, said: “There is a lot of talk about religious offence but not enough specific discussion on the boundaries. Ridiculing some religious beliefs, criticizing absurd religious practices and offending religious people was a way of life for Old Testament prophets. It’s not a freedom so much as a responsibility.”

The Jesus joke at the end was my favorite during last Christmas. It went down well with a few Born Again folk too.
