Belief in God and having a sense of humor

There are people who reject the idea of God and mock people of faith. Being a man of faith, I have been a target of this prejudice.
After all, if you believe in God, the theory that you are not supposed to be smart enough to know about science, politics and entertainment.

At the risk of alienating my regular readers, I stumbled across promotional material of "Godless," written by righter winger,
Ann Coulter. Love her or hate her, Ms. Coulter has written a spoof on the Church of "Liberalism;"

Its sacraments (abortion)

Its holy writ (Roe v. Wade)

Its martyrs (Soviet spy Alger Hiss)

Its clergy (public school teachers)

Its churches
(government schools, where prayer is prohibited but condoms are

Its doctrine of infallibility
(as manifest in the "absolute moral authority" of spokesmen from Cindy Sheehan to Max Cleland)

And its cosmology
(in which mankind is an inconsequential accident).

"Godless" should be an interesting read.
One thing I have noticed in life,
people of true faith - have a genuine sense of humor.
