...can we make fun of all religions, mainly Christianity/Catholicism, but not Islam or Muslims?

There is now a new "Flamin McMuslim 1/4 pounder burger" but it is only avaliable at the drive-thru at Glasgow Airport.

Did you hear about the Muslim strip club? It features full facial nudity!

Well, I'm not sure where you live, but I live in a country dominated by Christians who wield a rather potent political, cultural and social axe. It is the dominant religion where I live, so I'm far more familiar with it than any other major religion. I sometimes make fun of the whole kosher thing with strict Jewish people.

If I knew more about Islam and if they directly impacted my life, I might feel more inclined to poke fun.

Two muslim women trying on backpacks in a store - one turns round to the other and says "Hey, does my bomb look big in this?"

I thought Berkeley Breathed retired (again) years ago.

I gotta stack of Bloom County books somewhere around here. I love that Steve Dallas (and presumably Lola) are now middle aged.

Oh, and the media are a bunch of fucking pussies, to answer your question.

I was at a party the other day, and there was a little beat up Buddah in the back yard, with a flower lei around his neck. The owner was saying that it was 40 years old, belonged to her mom, ect. Someone else said "Looks like he lived in a fountain for a while."

I think before my next bar-b-que, I need to get big ol' crucifix, plumb it to spray water, and put some kind of wacky t-shirt on Jesus.

People get mad about all kinds of ridiculous shit. Your initial question and the entire premise of this thread betray you yet again as a fucking idiot. Because you are a fucking idiot, I will explain.

1. What Yablo said. 83% of Americans identify themselves as Christian. Humor tends to derive from things you are familiar with on some level.
2. Who the fuck is stopping you? Make fun of Muslims all you want. Hey look, that's what this thread does.

DUMB JOKE ALERT
MAY ALSO OFFEND THE EASILY OFFENDED

A priest, a minister, and a rabbi are seated at the same table at an ecumenical luncheon. The conversation turns to fundraising and how they allocate money between themselves and their mission work.

The priest says, "Here's what I do. I stand in the middle of a room, draw a circle around me, and throw the money up in the air. What falls outside of the circle goes to God, the rest I keep as my salary."

The minister says "I do something similar. I draw a line, throw the money in the air, and what falls on that side of the line is God's, and on this side is mine."

The rabbi says, "this is very interesting, I too do something much the same. I throw the money in the air, and whatever God catches, he can keep."

I actually heard a Catholic Priest tell this IN mass once. Pretty disgusting now that I think about it. I was so young, I didn't know "Jews love money" was a stereotype. He could have said the minister or priest last and it still would have been funny to me.

I mean, I personally have no problem with ANY un-PC joke, but that's inappropriate for mass.

Because the Islamic nations (Indonesia, Egypt) tend to be loads poorer then the rich christian nations and in their minds it is because the rich nations keep them down. At least that is what their government tells them...meanwhile Saudi Arabia spends all its oil wealth on the 10,000 member royal family and the country is struggling with 30% unemployment.
