Does Satirizing Religion, Promote Religion?

Much is being said today, about Charlie Hebdo being a “satirical magazine which poked fun at religion.”  I’ve never seen, much less read, this magazine. I cannot speak directly to its content. But I can tell you this: Humans use humor to escape from and to deny Truth, not to find and embrace Truth. When a society satirizes a subject, it is not uncovering Truth, it is not seeking Truth. What it is trying to do is legitimize its own biased interpretation of reality, by poking fun at how others perceive their reality. No enlightenment of mind is achieved, via the embrace of satire.

Religion is commonly decreed to be a layered construct. By layered, I mean that some humans are perceived to be marginally addicted to the insane god myth, others are decreed to be moderately addicted to the insane god myth, and others are decreed to be heavily addicted to the insane god myth. For example, the three tortured children who carried out the Charlie Hebdo massacre are decreed heavily addicted to the insane god myth, and further demonized as radicals, fundamentalists, extremists, etc…

This is a social deception. Religion is extremism, you fools! The idea that a god creature exists, is bizarre and radical to the extreme. This Forbidden Truth is denied by the majority, via the “mocking” of specific religious beliefs which stray outside of what the majority group deems normal to them. Therefore, mocking the religious beliefs of others, via satire, in no way mocks religion itself, or serves to expose religion as the insane delusion it is.

Perhaps some of the cartoons in Charlie Hebdo directly attacked religion itself, exposing it as insane fraud. But I do not think so. From what I have seen, Charlie Hebdo mocked and ridiculed very specific religious customs or beliefs, and specific religions, while failing to attack the mind virus that is religion itself, as a whole. We must understand that this type of satire does not merely fail to emancipate humans from the insane god myth, but it achieves the exact opposite result: It strengthens and increases addiction to the insane god myth by the same artificial division deployed by governments, in decreeing themselves democratic as they mock and condemn socialism, communism, dictatorships, etc.., and via the artificial division that is religion itself.

There is no functional difference between any mainstream religion: christianity, islam, judaism, hinduism, buddhism, or any others. Every religion is the same: Insane addiction to a deranged ideology imposed via terrorism by governments in order to effect social obedience and convince citizen-slaves to accept and embrace their own deaths. This is how religion itself must be understood and defined.

A satirical magazine like Charlie Hebdo makes religion more popular, not less popular. It allows god addicts to delude themselves that they are hip and modern and in touch with reality, by ridiculing and mocking the so-called “extremist” beliefs of other humans, without having to reject the insanity of a god creature existing, for themselves. The uninsightful might conclude that Charlie Hebdo only made islam more popular, but this is not True. It legitimized every religion, it made every religion more popular, by refusing to stand up and decree all belief in god to be insane, inferior, and unacceptable.

Humor has never been an effective tool or way to illuminate Truth, and it never will be. To break free of the insane god myth requires sober reflection upon Self, not mindless mocking of others. I do not know if any of the humans harvested at Charlie Hebdo were genuine atheists, or saw their work as a way to empower the Truth of atheism, but  if this was their goal, they failed miserably, and their efforts were inferior and doomed from the very beginning, based upon their approach of satire.
