  •  There aren't that many Jews in the world. (0+ / 0-)

    And there's a point - which Islam reached a long time ago - where the problems of an institution are so extreme that humor is usually pointless.  Catholicism's problems occupy the sweet spot where people treat it as a civilized institution gone bad - and thus worthy of ridicule - rather than an innately barbarous institution, which (rightly or wrongly) is how Islam is often perceived outside its own community.  When people stop making fun of Catholicism, then you've really got a problem.

    •  I was always taught (0+ / 0-)

      Due unto others, I don't need to agree with your thoughts or beliefs but I will not hate and mock you for them.  I am proud to be Catholic and my children are too.  I do not force my religion on anyone but I hope that others will be tolerant and not a bunch of trash talkers.  Christians, Jews ad Muslims all deserve the same respect.  Even the re-pubic-ans (wink) need respect we all have to share this planet together.  But we can disagree but have respect at the same time.

        who would rather be truthful and offensive than polite and duplicitous.  I have no respect for religion because it's not respectable - at its absolute best, it is a distraction.  But usually it's much worse than that.

        •  I will (0+ / 0-)

          Pray for you and others like you that have not found GOD, as a 46 year old, I have never lost sight of The Lord.  I pray that you ultimately change your beliefs.  President Obama is a Christian man and his family too.  President to be Joe Biden is a Catholic, JFK, all religious people.  Are they wrong.
