Wrong to make a joke of it? It's a symbolic ritual, just like Baptism itself. Therefore it's no more a joke than Baptism itself. How many babies are actually able to baptize themselves of their own accord, vs. being able to do the latter? See, it's less of a joke when a conscious, thinking adult makes the decision. More and more people are deciding they don't want the shackles of ignorance, superstition, and stupidity on them. Who can blame them? Babies don't have that choice, do they? Someone makes it for them.
You're right, the world isn't fair. Funny how the people that seem to know this best seem to be the ones using logic, reasoning, and sanity, instead of being led into a flock of ignorance and lies.

Of course they mean to offend but since I find atheism to be a form of mental illness, I could care less.
I am curious though, I don't seem to ever see the atheist blowhards attacking Islam, VooDoo, Hinduism, etc. specifically, am I wrong?
They attack "religion" and then narrow down to christianity, but any other religion?
A few years back I had an operation in a Catholic hospital, a nun brought me some ice cream while I was recuperating. I spose if an atheist were there, he or she would have mocked me for awhile then scratched their butt.

My friend , my comments sure do apply to Christians , or anyone else for that matter.
They can claim to be whatever they want but what they are is a group being controlled by others to push some agenda , which will in all likelihood , take away some right granted by the constitution .
Do I see it as disrespectful to me ? Not a chance , I see it as plain silly .
