Not so funny

I'm an atheist but I feel the need to put up some sort of defence of the Catholic Church.

Why is it that in the comedic world, Catholicism and its followers are seen as easy targets, yet all other faiths are spared ridicule?

Will Mario Rosenstock put his money where his mouth is and do a sketch mocking Islam? Somehow I don't think his staunch defence of freedom of speech goes that far.
