← Insulting religion

As much as I love and appreciate the efforts of Pat Condell, imagine a pastor playing this video one Sunday morning for the congregation of a large mega-church. An eruption of laughter mixed with indignation would be the likely result, especially if the pastor primed his audience by comically feigning shock and dismay during Pat's "sermon". A young Baptist minister I knew years ago could pull-off such a stunt with relative ease.

Given this fact, perhaps it is the preachers and ministers themselves that Condell should be targeting, instead of his broad-based attack on all things religious. Go after the shepherds, rather than the sheep.

I don't know if this would work any better, but if anybody could script a scathing and convincing indictment against ecclesiastics who fill people's heads with religious nonsense on a weekly basis -- it would be the illustrious Pat Condell.
