Okay, I was scolded today by some friends for laughing at this joke about the world cup.

"Protestant Holland 0
Catholic Spain 1"

Now I think this is light razing, not like this......

Which I agree is over the top.

How much can we laugh about religion if at all?

Both countries have become pretty secular, but all that "orange" identity for Holland is no longer very accurate. The Netherlands is now just over 26% Catholic and only about 11% Protestant.
