"Catholic mitres look funny". Meanwhile not a word of criticism about these.

The fact of the matter is that they are all funny, including particularly the one that is evocative of the Guggenheim. So are mitres.

But please tell me you're not suggesting that jokes that have never been previously made at the expense of Islamic and other religions' headwear. News flash: they have.

Look, plenty of religious symbols, practices, and traditions are objectively irrational, and sometimes even objectively funny. It is the nature of faith -- whichever faith -- to adhere to, believe, and practice those traditions notwithstanding their irrationality. If you can do it with a smile on your face and an occasional chuckle, and without feeling persecuted by humor, all the better.

I didn't say that mitres don't look funny. I said that while that fact is pointed out in the media, the media would never say the same about Islamic headgear. Do you actually think the British or Canadian media would say that Islamic Muslim headgear looks funny? Would the media in Sweden, France, Germany or any EU states flooded with Muslim migrants say that Muhammad's headgear looked funny? Never. There would be massive violent riots with killing of Christians and Jews and other non-Muslims.

News flash: the MSM and Islam worship the same entity.
