Laughing at God.

The vids in this posts are NSFW.

There is a lot of good humor and humorist out there taking shots at faith. In the U.S. people like David Cross and the late great George Carlin have been happy with being open with there lack of faith.

George Carlin and the Ten Commandments.

But there is even more great stuff in the U.K. It is all over the place. On panel shows and quiz shows, on radio and TV people are quite ready to mock and openly call religion a lie. Particularly on the BBC quiz show QI, regular Alan Davies has quipped about the fiction that is the bible. And Jimmy Carr has been eager to point out how much crap it all is. As has the host Stephen Fry, who even has a great moment where he makes a point of pointing out just how original the Christ story is. Plus the Now Show on BBC Radio is quite happy to take shots at all things including religion. But it is a regular motif for many great Brit comedians, like Dara O'Briain.
