Over the next few days I’ll receive emails from across the country chewing me out for making light of something as serious as Rick Perry’s religion. They’ll find it very offensive and think it’s unfair.
I’m not making fun of his religion. I’m making fun of him using his religion for political gain. When someone does that, it is fair to criticize it.
Someone using religion for political gain should be more offensive than some cartoonist pointing them out for the crack pot they are.
