I love to laugh and the more irreverant the better.  The atheist/priest fight didn't make me laugh, but who cares.  If I were to find something offensive here, I would express my opinion about it, but that is the end of it.  Have you ever told a joke and it fell flat because of the way you told it, or your audience who didn't like it?  That's life.  I say move on.  Believe me, I am not shy about my opinions, but I don't think it is a big deal and we shouldn't be debating what's funny.  Some will like it and some won't ans each camp should express their opinions.

There is nothing funny about child molestation for example, but given the right audience, one of my "favorite" jokes is about child molestation.  Not because molestation is funny, but the irreverance of the joke are shocking, and sometimes, shock can be funny.

At the same time, one of my favorite comedians is Mae West.  She never said a "dirty" thing in her life, but the censors were after her all of the time.  "It's not what I say, but the way that I say it."

 

While FUCK for example is in no way offensive to me, I do not enjoy comedians who use it as every other word.  To me it shows a lack of creativity and imagination.  Yet I can laugh and cringe at a molestation joke.

It's all a matter of taste.

Joseph P, you proved me wrong! I yield to your points on ridicule of the RC church and their many nonsensical principles.

ɟǝןıx dǝʇɹɐɹ , I yield to you as well. I am a "Christmas grudge". The last group I need to belong to is "Humor". What others see as funny, I perceive as asinine. So, Bye bye.

I asked myself the same question, Patricia. I say we just move on to something else.

That is funny! I "suck the life out of comedy and made baby Jesus cry!" So, with this reputation you ask that I show you some real comedy? It is very easy to block me.

That bag is made of linen and wool, woven together.

Okay ... just WHAT does god have against bags? [and yes, I DO get the WBC reference!]

If we observe a victim of religion doctrine, and make a joke of it, how are we to be a source for enlightenment?

For one thing, mockery is a great way of shaming people for doing stupid things and getting them to cut that shit out.  That can lead to enlightenment.

It is not the observer of suffering to whom we should cater; it is the sufferer who needs the relief. Do you think the raping priest should be entertained, or the rape victim who should be empowered?

Actually, I have a few priest-molestation jokes in my routine.  I was raised Catholic, so it's topical.  The same thing applies there.  Abusing the Catholic church for the evils they commit is a good way to get it out there in the public consciousness.  Biting humor can be a good way to accomplish that.

Are we not more advanced as human beings than that?

Look around at the human race and see if you can ask that again with a straight face.
