    I guess Sarah Palin's upcoming book on the War on Christmas isn't enough to stir up the faithful. Seriously, Catholic League?

    Or they could just, ya know, not watch his show if it offends them. I can think of plenty of things catholics have done to offend the rest of the world, but I'm not trying to shut them up.

    I had two thoughts:

    1. 39 jokes between 1998-2013 is less than one joke every 4 months.

    2. Some famous guy once said, "Turn the other cheek", or something like that. I'm sure I'll remember his name eventually.

    Instead of complaining about the jokes people make about your religion, why don't you change your actions so they don't have such an easy target anymore?

    Yeah. I know who you're talking about, but can't recall his name, either. Gaw. What was his name? He drove that funny looking car, always listened to the Gin Blossoms...

    Didn't Bill O'Riley declare victory in the so-called war on Christmas?

    Exactly.

    Maher also mocks born-agains a lot. But of course they say and do a lot of things that invite it as well.

    And how many jabs have the catholic priests took towards under age boys? CASE CLOSED!!!

    Screw the priests that are hiding behind the all mighty power church and not facing any real consequences. And screw the church for protecting them.

    39 jokes in over ten years? I make more catholic jokes in a week then that, and pretty much everyone I know does as well (all christians).

    Sounds like a certain group needs to grow a spine.

    If the Catholic church wants the pedo jokes to stop then they need to punish all the pedophiles and the pedophile protectors in the church.

    This is an organisation who made a bishop resign for having sex with an adult woman.
