Your favorite because you feel it let's you point out the stupidity of people 
here? 

 People you have categorized in your mind by their specific beliefs?
 

 To me, that says a lot, and is not just a little strange.

 A fine selection, I like the one from Rowan Atkinson. He made it during the 
debate the UK had on whether the blasphemy law should be extended to other 
faiths than Christianity. This came as a shock to most of us because we didn't 
know there still was a blasphemy law.
 

 It was Tony (I only know what I believe) Blair's idea, he was bowing to Muslim 
pressure to make them feel more included in society after the inevitable rise 
in suspicion after 9/11. Another insinuation was that they might be less likely 
to go a-suicide bombing if we stopped making fun of Allah. Turns out that the 
ones who were likely to get radicalised will still do that anyway.
 

 It's good to debate these things but most smart people were dead against it 
and even though the law was extended to all faiths in 2006, the whole thing was 
abandoned a few years later. A smart move by the Labour government I think. So 
we are free to make as many vicar/mullah  jokes as we like now and not fear 
prosecution - just getting attacked in the street by any passing cognitive 
dissonance sufferers.

 Oh dear, now we're into the dueling quotes portion of our discussion. 
They're a dime a dozen and some are wonderful and clever and funny and cutting 
from both sides of the debate. bawee seems to have wanted to flood his post 
with the things.

Yes, obviously it was nonsense.  There was not figuring it out. 

 But Barry jumped on, for all the usual reasons, and then had to backtrack.
 

 As I recall, (reading fast as I do), he didn't issue a retraction, just came 
at it differently to issue a new put down of some sort.
 

 Maybe I have that wrong.
