Or those who think atheists actually do believe, but are rebelling to cause a scene.

OK, I do understand the edict but have also wondered why the roll-your-eyes icon ....click over there>>>>> to see the text description......is provided for use here.
Because I've got this weird thing going with smileys on my posts and was too lazy to find a more appropriate one? Not everything has deep subliminal meaning...except for this:

Ponder it deeply everyone!

Even a minor attempt at humor in R&P area meets with disapproval.... and it seems that posting a picture or image is a guaranteed to not meet with approval. Where are the Kudzu Jesus on the cross when you need them.

I'm sure I could post a picture of a guy being crucified and suffering for days, without issue but a guy eating popcorn or a Muslim praying....... not so much.

Yea, I haven't had much luck with Jesus-toast pictures either. Maybe Christians aren't allowed to laugh.

Don't recall that they have ever listed "no laughter" as one of their rules, but can't say I've seen one laugh either.

Must come under the broader scope of "be miserable" and recruit others to join you in your misery.

I agree that the censorship on CD is getting rather extreme...

My thoughts on this was not to stop sarcasm or jokes about gods or demigods.
Or if someone jokes or ridicules Darwin and what he proposed. That’s fine.
If I joke about God or Jesus or Buddha or Mohammed. That does not say I think any of the followers of that group are bad people.
Its when someone calls a group sinners that is saying we are bad people. That is something directed towards us as individuals.

IMHO

Cheers,
