    I see this as an ongoing thread. Religion and politics are supposed to be the two subjects to be avoided in polite company. I disagree.

    Others are welcome to post some of their favorites. The only rule: It has to be about religion or politics.

    Hi! May there be humor in everything as we unlearn what we’ve learned about being funny and growing up serious we must undo this programming and become humorous and happy as well as playful for no reason at all.

    Who’s going to be less likely to go out and kill people? Boys in a prayer circle or boys in a circle jerk?

    Thanks. Never tire of Lewis Black.

    Loved the show where he said, “If you want to know about the Old Testament there are people walking amongst us called Jews who can tell you all about it.  You’re reading it all wrong. They, the Jews, can help you. Just stop one on the street and he’ll be more than happy to explain it to you…for a fee.”

    Hi! The political and religious world is screaming out to be made fun of as the late Comedian Robin Williams would’ve said if he were alive today.

    Anyone “woke” should take notice:

    I like Carlin, but in this case, no, not really. I won’t say he’s 100% wrong. It can slow conversation for people who become paralyzed looking for the right term so as to avoid criticism. But he’s missing or deliberately cutting out so much of the conversation that it comes off as misguided and naïve. That’s a conversation I’d have been happy to have with Carlin were he still alive today.

    Autumn, i think i know where you are going with that but would you mind elaborating just a bit?

    That’s probably too big of a conversation. I don’t know when that audio clip was recorded, but it’s likely been in the neighbourhood of a couple of decades since. A lot has happened since then—enough to let us know that language does matter for quite a few reasons (though that doesn’t contradict Carlin here). While ‘PC’ changes aren’t always inherently better, having evolving conversation around language matters, especially when we consider that the people actually described by the various terminology in question have to shout ten times louder than the normies just to get one tenth as many words in.

    Unseen,

    We could always call the physically and mentally infirm by one word: “Healed.”

    But, of course, that would take work to proclaim with truth.

    Hi! Why does humor have to be religious?
