I know a lot of people will think this is funny, and I have NO regard for the Catholic or any other religion. But having worked a significant portion of my career in human services for the state, specifically child protective services, the video made me uncomfortable. It just is not a subject one should find humor in, in my opinion.

Nonnie: He clearly has style -- I'll check him out.

RC: Well, somebody's gotta speak for 'em.....

RtS: I know some people will find this cringe-worthy. But the cringing comes from the knowledge that these guys do, in fact, do this -- not from Louis CK's effective (and necessary) reminder of it. The Catholic Church needs to have its nose rubbed in this scandal at every opportunity.

As for the humor, ridicule is one of the most effective weapons we have. It should be used as much as possible.

...ridicule is one of the most effective weapons we have. I completely and fully agree. I LOVE Jon Stewart and the rest. Humor is extremely effective in reaching the consciousness of others. And it is so telling that Conservatives, and the religious in particular, have such a very poorly defined sense of humor; to the point where satire is often over their heads. But when humor crosses that "taste test", I think the message can be less effective.

An example might be Penn and Teller's "Bullshit" series which is pretty good. But I think it would be just as effective without the profanity and personal insults. As I say, taste in humor, like many things, varies.
