Welcome to "Let's all mock religion" weekend.

Given that this is Easter weekend, I believe we should all exercise our Blogging Tory-guaranteed right to free speech to savagely and wickedly ridicule religion for the next four days. Cuz that's just the kind of guy I am. So even though I posted this clip recently, once again, here's Christine Kane with "Mary Katherine's Ash Wednesday Journal Entry." Enjoy.

Your turn.

Go away, Wayne. Seriously.

CC said...

OK, BB, that was clever.

Marc Bernard said...

What really puzzles me is that some of the most ardent Christians I know absolutely refuse to believe that human activity may have something to do with climate change. Yet, they will not consider for a moment the absence of any scientific evidence of God to be strange.

BB's mocking of religion would be more genuine if he didn't engage in proselytising (rather rare among Jews) on his own blog by featuring a site that urges people to convert to Judaism.

Got any good Passover jokes, BB?

Backseat Blogger said...

i'm clever cc?

aw shucks.

r raptor jesus pics acceptable?

no, ti-guy i don't know any passover jokes.... but i'll check around.

Is it just me or does anyone else think 'Good Friday' wasn't exactly a great day for that Hey Zeus guy?

I don't think it's just me.

Ti-Guy said...

I tend to like Woody Allen's jokes about Judaism. Like when he suggests the Jews should have another holiday to commemorate all the promises God broke to them.

Christians would do well to cultivate that kind of humour.

One of my favourite bits, mingling Jewish humour with the birth of Jesus, is the bit by Cathie Ladman making fun of the Wise Men's gift of myrrh to the Baby Jesus. Unfortunately, the only clip I can find is at Comedy Central which can't be played in Canada.

My favourite - time to change the church window? or not.

I don't think anything can ever top Life of Brian. when it comes to mocking Christianity.

Metro said...

One of my old faves.

I don't remember where I read it this weekend, but I saw something saying "And on Easter Sunday he leaps out yelling "APRIL FOOL!"

That Jesus ... Always late.

cc. maybe u should pin this thread otherwise it's going to get lost in yr postings....
and we'll all miss the mockery.

and yes, it's hard to beat 'always look on the bright side of life'

chris' pic is so on the mark it's scary.

but the title of the post is 'let's all mock religion' so why restrict ourselves to mocking jeebus when they're so many other targets out there?

like this one.

and yes, ti-guy, i can mock my own just as well.(it's called having a sense of humour ;) )

but since it IS jeebus' holiday, there's this.

KEvron said...

"when it comes to mocking Christianity."

mocking, yes, but affectionately.

i finally caught the invention of lying a couple of weeks ago. i was expecting a scathing indictment of religion; i was surprised at how reverently gervais delivered his irreverence. i've got no use for sky pixies, and i loathe a proselytizer, but if faith in a god brings someone a little peace of mind, then that's cool by me.
