Religion and Jokes

In the wake of the attack on Charlie Hebdo, I think it is a good time to discuss the relationship between religion and jokes. Purely from an observational standpoint, it very much appears to me that the more religious someone is, the less of a sense of humor they tend to have.

Speculation on the Boston Marathon Bombing

I don’t have cable so I don’t watch my news on television. This means that I don’t have the “benefit” of the endless analysis and speculation that has almost certainly been going on non-stop on all the 24/7 news channels. Instead, I read my news online so I generally get mostly the facts and only a small amount of speculation. Based on that, I have some thoughts and speculations of my own.
