Making fun of religions since 2010.

Better stay clear of this comic if you really cannot stand people making fun of Atheism, Buddhism, Christianity, Creationism, Germanic and Greek Polytheism, Hinduism, Islam or Judaism as well as of Abraham, Agni, Aliens, Angels, the Easter Bunny, Great Ctuluh, Isaac, Jahweh, Jesus, John the Baptist, Joseph, Mary, Mohammed, normal humans, Pascal, robots, Santa Claus, Satan, Tantalus, Thor, Vishnu, well-built catholic girls, Zao Jun or Zeus (more religious belief systems and persons may follow).

Updates whenever I find the time (not that often lately...).

Been over a year now...
idea for future reference
I've encountered another nice analogy akin to your old religion like wine (Still my favorite, I guess)
"Religion is like an appendix. It may have served some purpose in the past, but it really does nothing for us now, and when it goes bad it can kill you.
Some time during the procedure Latino looking guy needs to come in and reach into the organ.

This translation needs to be read in GLaDOS voice and then the "Still Alive" tune needs to start!

Oh, this won't end well...
For some people...
How CAN there be blasphemy towards Buddhism? They do not have deities, as far as I know...
2 shapes of Budda and a sad irony
In the area around India (which is mainly Hindu), Buddha is depicted as a thin, fit man who is emotionally reserved. Often as a young man at that. In Asia (where most of his followers come from), expressly around Japan, he is depicted as a jolly fat man.
Guess which is the more fitting?

Then consider the fact he was around his mid thrities before he achieved enlightenment

In a sad bit of irony, the oldest known statues of Buddha were in Afghanistan, and soon before the Taliban was attacked and collapsed, a film crew asked for and got permission to film the statues and record them. The crew tried to immortalise the statues. This however, probably reminded the Taliban about them and before they retreated from the are shelled the place to rubble.
@Alvarin: Sorry, I have no idea. Didn't expect that problem ;)
Well...
In Myanmar you can go to jail for insulting Buddhism: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2015/03/myanmar-court-jails-insulting-buddhism-150317 063346508.html

Considering that Buddha, according to Buddhist myth defeated an army of attacking demons by simply going on meditating, I cannot imagine a religious figure more likely to just ignore any insult and thereby surviving any assault with style. Seems like courts in Myanmar don't trust Buddha's awesome serenity powers...

And no, this doesn't mean that I like everything Buddhism teaches...

. . . What I can see happening
Equality movements will weigh in. People will claim the classes teach children that being gay, lesbian or bisexual and is discrimitory.
Women rights activists will claim the bible teaches sexism.
Different religions will claim it is religous descrimination and insist thir own religions are taught instead.
Now, I don't really think denominational religious studies belong into public schools. But when you teach fiction to children at least label it as such...
