Cartoon’s Fanatic Freakout = Fundie Failure

It seems many cartoonists won’t be cowed by fundamentalist threats and are firing shots back at the fanatics with more editorial cartoons. The most widely used theme seems to be to point out the hypocrisy of the threats. Whereas it’s perfectly acceptable for the religious nutjobs to poke fun at other religions, turnabout is suddenly not so cool with them.

And in related news, the Catholic fanatics in New Zealand tried to boycott that infamous “Bloody Mary” South Park episode… the result was humorous, with viewership increasing over 600 percent.

It seems the lesson fanatics seem unable to learn is that if you don’t like a satirical cartoon of your religion, it’s better off to ignore it or not watch it (hello… earth to self-control). Because venting a spleen and flipping out is only going to make more people point and laugh.
