6. The bigot brush

Religions don't all get treated equally when it comes to criticism or mockery.

Make fun of a Quaker and he'll shrug and walk away.
Tell a Jewish joke to a Jew, and he'll laugh and tell you a better one.
Make fun of a Mormon and he'll look sincerely confused and not get it.
Poke fun at a Catholic and he'll turn red-faced and complain of Anti-Catholic bigotry.
Have a laugh at a Liberal Christian and he'll say he doesn't believe that either, but won't say what he does believe.
Sneer at a Fundamentalist Christian, and he'll damn you to Hell.
Mock Islam, and have a huge mob baying outside your window wanting to cut your head off.

There's a large segment of society who thinks we therefore shouldn't criticise or mock Islam.
