Hilarious ‘Satirist’ Pushes the Envelope Too Far?

Satire is the art of pretending to adopt a position you wish to ridicule and then, with apparent sincerity, aping opinions you consider absurd. A good satirist never drops his mask in public and leaves not a single chink in his characterisation. The trick is to go as far as possible without it ever being too obvious you’re acting the fool. In other words, ‘credibility’ is the key.

According to Scripture, if one of your animals kills a second time because you didn’t kill it after it claimed its first human victim, this time you die right along with your animal…”the ox shall be stoned, and its owner also shall be put to death.”
