Unhappy Mocking Religion!

In my life i have discovered that there are many prejudice people out there and they only make fun of one religion, Christianity!

Think about it, ever seen blasphemous things about the christian faith on the internet?,
where as if it were the muslims, jews etc,
they would not tolerate it and might sue the website!

Recently there was a big raid just because someone drew a cartoon of muhammed!
and i would like to ask the question,
Why do people make fun of christains and think they can get away with it?! :mad:
im sure most christians, like myself will want to know the answer to this question...

Re: Mocking Religion!

People do make fun of Jews, Muslims, etc. Look at other sites, watch T.V. they do. It's out there believe me. I know people make fun of me all the time. You just have to learn to deal with it. No matter what you do people are always going to poke fun at you.

They make fun of all religions. Christianity is the most popular in America, so it's naturally the brunt of most jokes.

I'm all for jokes. Seriously, I have a good sense of humor. I may or may not laugh if someone makes fun of Christianity, in the same way if they made fun of Hindism, Mormonism, Islam, the mailman, or your mom. I don't make fun of my own religion, and I try not to make fun of others'. Ultimately, most jokes are poking fun at another person or idea, so it's hard to escape it. As long as a joke isn't offensive, I can handle it. After all, stress-free is the way to be.

Re: Mocking Religion!

Dude, it's all based on the level of exposure. As Christianity was and still is exposed to public at large, at a scale much larger than say, Muslim and so on, of course you'll see more mocking of this one type of religion. Same thing will apply to Muslim or other religions if all people do is preaching about them, no? In any case, it's the Internet. Not everything should be taken seriously.

Re: Mocking Religion!

In America, everyone is made fun of.

However, in the case of religious debate, most people seem to favor the Jewish or Islamic side of the argument over the Christian side. Out of all religions, Christianity is the one that is most suppressed in terms of their expression of their beliefs. Muslims get hit hard because of the 9/11 attacks and other terrorist strikes by Islamic extremist groups in recent years, and Jews have been persecuted for centuries, but Christianity is the only religious institution that is attacked directly, and not through its students.

Re: Mocking Religion!

christianity is mocked so much today because it is so popular, consider it a compliment the next time a person uses the lords name in vain

Now to discuss the mohammed cartoon, well, Extremist muslims are well, much more hardcore than extremist christians, also, I may be wrong, but I think that it is not a sin to "mock" christianity, and therefore no punishment is fit.

In general though, I think that muslims and jews get mocked a lot more that christians, but thats just through my experience.

Re: Mocking Religion!

I agree with you Evil Duck.

In Canada people fight for religious freedom in government, but if its christianity they are mocked, ridicueled etc...
There are tonnes of Comics against Jesus, but when one pops up about muhammed then it causes attacks against people who had nothing to do with the comic.

Re: Mocking Religion!

I won't allow myself to be offended. But I don't laugh with the ones who make jokes, especially not when it directly concerns God, the Holy Spirit and the Son. It hurts sometimes when people mock me for my faith or mock my God. But God is even sorrier than me, I think. Other than that... I know that my faith will be mocked... so there's nothing to do about that.

Re: Mocking Religion!

I think its because Christianity is more accepting than the other religions mentioned. Besides, Christianity's God is a loving God that accepts everyone no matter what they are or do. Under this religion we follow his/her example. Different religions have different principles. Look at what's happening today about the Muhammad cartoon.

Re: Mocking Religion!

I agree with you on one sense of the arguement - in the sense that people are berated for blaspheming against the Islamic, Judaic or Buddhist faiths; but aren't for Christianity.

I am an atheist, and as much as I (obviously) am not religious, I do think that every religion is essential to keeping people with their chins up in this planet. Religion is there to give hope to those who essentially have none, and that is why it IS wrong to mock religion.

However, it isn't just Christianity that people blaspheme. I mean, look at the ethical beating that Islam has taken; it isn't right for people to stereotype Muslims because of for example Al Qaeda, or other Islamic Jihad terrorist factions.

So in conclusion, yes people do mock religion - in some cases where it isn't due. My friend is an atheist too, but he is so pedantic over it to the point where he is literally destroying the faith (in his eyes)...and it does all go over to my Christian friend.

First: It wasnt one cartoon it was 7

Second: The musslims have LAWS that says you cant put muhhamed in a picture, a bit what vacumgod said.

Third: Many people who wanted the anger to grow "overdid" the complaints against the pictures. It has been reported that many stated that all denmarks newspapers were showing 2 of these cartoons everyday when it was just one very small newspaper who posted the pictures. Imagin that all newspapers in a whole country would make fun of you and your laws and you would probebly get a bit angry too.

Re: Mocking Religion!

I think I agree with vacumgod. Christianity may be mocked a lot, but have you noticed that it isn't mocked as a belief as much as it is certain Christians that are out there? Basically it's because they have to be the center of attention, or they were shoved into the center of attention, so everyone sees it and laughs. Also, Jews in my school get more jokes thrown at them than anyone else does. I do mean ANYONE.

There is some level of understanding I have. If I need to defend my faith, I can certainly do so. I mostly hear it on TV, but occasionally I hear it from someone I don't know.

Re: Mocking Religion!

Yep, all religions/races/customs/sexual preferences/whatevertheheck are made fun of. I guess it's just human nature to taunt, poke fun at, insult or find fault with people with beliefs that differ from ours, or just the beliefs in general.

Even though all religions are made fun of, you probably notice the taunting of Christianity more because you're a Christian, and that sort of things would naturally stand out to you more than someone making fun of another religion. Also, as someone already stated, Christianity is huge in America, so it's a pretty convenient topic for the ornery people who feel the need to mock something.

As for me, I try not to make fun of anyone unless I know for a fact they'll laugh about it or I make clear that I'm joking. I wouldn't ever put someone down or make fun of them for their religious beliefs because I know how important religion is to a lot of people, and I know it can be a sensitive subject. I also try not to believe or enforce stereotypes because, obviously, not all middle eastern men are terrorists.

Re: Mocking Religion!

The reason people make fun of Christainity is becuase even though christans are a minority they are still concidered the majority. It the over liberal world we live in, people are not allowed to critisie minoritys,only people in the majority can be critsed.

This makes it hard for white chirstian males. White people, christains, and males are the only people people can make fun of and still be politically correct.

Re: Mocking Religion!

The real reason, some would say in the back of their minds but not shout it out loud, is that there is a spiritual war going on.

Re: Mocking Religion!

People make fun of everything. But seeing as I'm a christian who has looked into this I can give you a reason. Christians make other christians look really bad. I mean seriously some christians burned freaken harry potter books! They made us look like over sensitive jerks! And anyways no one really looks into it because well, we don't care. Well I don't atleast I think it's funny. Other religions people find are minority like and go crazy if you say something. But frankly I really don't care. I just go on living.
