So, Who Gets Made Fun of The Most?—Christians, Muslims, or Jews?

One opinion.

Let's see. Irreverence toward Jesus Christ: we have this. And this. This counts, I think. You'll want to turn the sound down for this. And few people, Christian or not, can resist this. Another one. And, of course, this. Don't forget this one.

This one would appear to skewer all faiths—until you consider its name.

That's going four pages into a search for "Jesus." Here's a bonus for you.

Just off the top of my head, we have a few that focus on Catholics. Like this. And this. And this.

This situation surely deserves an honorable mention. And this theme is an evergreen.

Protestants? Well, there are so many brands. But this likely qualifies. As does this. Definitely counts. I'd include this as well.

Moses: Well, there's this. And this.

With respect to Jews in general, of course, we find the most hilarious joke of all time. Ha ha. I mean, these guys just kill me. Oh, wait . . . And here's more lighthearted fun.

Four pages into a search for "Mohammed prophet" (to, ahem, distinguish the prophet from some of the colorful characters that share his name) I got this. Let's also throw this one in.

Sorry, Azmat. I just don't see it.

UPDATE: Glenn has a roundup of commentary on the Islamic double standard.

Excellent work, LMA...spot on! Thanks for going through the trouble of putting this all together!

We've all seen thousands more, many that make these look like a Valentine.

Civilized people, religious people, express their opposition in a civilized way, in a religious way. Period. It is much more effective and it reflects well on one's religion.

Some of these ARE funny.

But you forgot the all time favorite: http://www.landoverbaptist.org/
This irreverent website has been around for over a decade and features such merchandise as the "what would Jesus do thong"

Then there's the Jesus and Virgin Mary Dildos:

I'm a catholic and these are particularly hurtful, (no pun intended) yet for some reason I still don't feel the need to froth at the mouth and demand the head of the person who created them.

Furthermore, most those Arab cartoons that slander Americans and Jews come from countries where the media IS CONTROLLED by their government, some even call themselves our allies.... Hmmmmm…

But not to be biased here’s a new website that popped up with hundreds of depictions of Mohammed:

Sorry Azmat. I guess now that the world has found Islam’s buttons; they are going to push them! Had no big deal been made about 12 stupid little Danish cartoons, images like these wouldn’t be around.

Dear God forgive me, I'm going to hell for posting this one:

Mary was only a virgin...

Dear God forgive me for finding that one funny...

God gave us a sense of humor for good reason.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
