The late Christopher Hitchens once said that "Mockery of religion is one of the most essential things...one of the beginnings of the human emancipation is the ability to laugh at authority. It's indispensable."

Should the ridiculous be ridiculed, or should we find other methods for exposing the cracks in religious foundations?
