Using the technique of satire is one of the most effective ways of making a point. It can be outlandishly funny, but it can also be infuriating and offensive. It’s almost always controversial. While people’s take on satire differs, I tend to enjoy it (especially when I agree with the point being made!).
This week I stumbled across a blog devoted to theological satire: “tominthebox news network.” While I don’t agree with everything there, I must say that I can’t remember the last time I laughed harder. It’s quite witty.
