Oh! I'd also say, "Monotheistic religion has always brought out the best in us humans; thank you so much for the idea of a vengeful supernatural entity who rewards people in the afterlife! That shit makes a lot of sense!"
Yep, I'm one of those wacko people who things that religion is no longer needed by a modern thinking public. Of course, most of the public is still neither modern or thinking. If there is any 'growth group' in religion, its atheism and agnosticism. I think this is a "Good Thing".
Another thought these comics induce, in the US it seems the precursor to the 'voice of reason' usually comes in the form of satire. Seems its easier for our 'modern thinking public' to attack emotional issues in an emotional context like humor. The true cynical and sarcastic attitude of the public rings thru in a undeniable way. In theory, conclusions based on logic should follow in other channels. To the authors its a way to express opinions over an emotional issue, to readers it may be inspiration for 'out of the box thinking' or mearly a needed escape. You can see the reason countries like China fear open and unregulated channels of communication. The sources of dangerous ideas start in what would seem to be harmless ways, such as satire. Religion isn't the only place.
Cherish your satire. Destory your idols and gods.
