Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

That's a separate issue, you're making a fuss about people making fun of the silliness of Christianity, and trying to compare it to racism.

That's right. I'd say people people react to both about evenly. You're trying to compare it to what make of car you drive, again unless you know of Subaru suicide-bombers, it's your comparison that's way off.
They say you can't believe everything they say.

Religion is a choice, you can choose whatever religion you want to believe in, the same way you can choose what brand of car you drive. As for the Subaru suicide bomber what's your point, is this your way of deflecting the topic to Muslim extremists?

I'll try one more time. People get killed for drawing cartoons mocking religion. No one has been killed for having a Calvin cartoon peeing on the symbol of another car. If you can't tell how one is taken more seriously than the other, that's a big problem you have.

Again that's a separate issue. You complained that making fun of Christianity is the same as racism which it's not.

Here's exactly what I said:
I'd say people people react to both about evenly.
... see, I didn't say they were the same... more like people might react the same, which is quite different than how people react to mocking one's choice of automobile.
They say you can't believe everything they say.

You can make jokes about Christians because they can handle it. Same goes for French jokes. You can't, however, make jokes about those who are perceived to have thin skins (from our condescending white guilt perspective).

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. The job of a skeptic generally comes down to critical examination of doubtful claims.
