Shirty, if they had printed a strip, side by side of the various religions, depicting a figurehead of that religion at a pulpit getting oral from a someone -male/female/child/animal/green martian hiding inside the pulpit (like that old Police Academy sketch) while they preach to their congregation that they should be abstinent, I would get it. The fun poking is at the hypocrisy, the alleged lie. Satire is to provoke thought (well, I thought so anyway), not anger. What Hebdo have done with this latest issue is an act of defiance. Then again, being British, what do I know of French rationale? I'm reminded of that Red Dwarf exchange in series 1 : Holly: Jean-Paul Sartre said Hell was being locked forever in a room with your friends. Lister: Holly, all his mates were French!
