    I don't know, something about organized religion, and humor, just doesn't go well together.

    Wouldn't actually want anyone to ENJOY themselves.

    Oh well, back to what I was doing...:sleep:

    Wish I could rep you on this, Kathianne. This is Krauthammer at his best.
    Thanks for posting.

    Irrefutable point, but are the rules of the road really dictated by Islamic mobs, Chuck? I'd say they're enforced by Jews like you, bucked by Islamic mobs with nothing to lose, and passively observed by the rest.

    You know, I don't think Krauthammer has ever been wrong. The guy's smart as hell, but kind of weird looking.

    It's quite likely the first one of Krauthammer's editorials I've ever agreed with.

    Though they might not be as violent, Christians show outrage when their religion is satirized and criticized and made fun of.

    Don’t you remember the public outcry that went out when the movie The Last Temptation of Christ was released? In fact, a French Catholic fundamentalist group launched Molotov cocktails inside a theater to protest against the film projection.

    Also consider the shouts of outrage following the movie Dogma. There was more than picketing. Death threats were actually made against its director producers.

    I disagree. We have a great sense of humor. What is the point of faith in God if you dont know how to laugh at yourself?

    Besides, I think non-religious fanatics have even less of a sense of humor. Look at liberals for example.

    I agree. I think the exception is being presented as the rule.

    And liberals won't even admit to being liberals when you call them one.:cool:
