Seriously, if somebody gets all huffy about somebody cracking a joke about their religion, they must not be that secure in their beliefs.

Well, at the end of the day, most of the believers are not sure at all on what they believe. This is not the question.

I have a problem with taxes exemption, circumcision of babies (they cannot consent), and all this crap. If we are allowed to make fun of it, maybe people will start to realize how crazy these beliefs are.

My opinion is that we (the whole secular world) should stop giving religion a high status. They are business, and should have to follow the rules.

Why not? Why should we not make fun of religion?
Want to do anything, anything at all and not get busted? Say: my religion says I must do it...
It is a "get out of jail" card. If we keep respecting religion as sacred and true, they will never mend.
We should respect people. People beliefs are fair game, though.

We have 1 standalone equipment which uses linux. We chose to use gentoo for 3 reasons:
1. Customizable
2. Almost every library and application is available as source
3. Compiling things is the way to go. This may sound strange, but you do want to be able to compile things to run on your system. Not to make it quicker, but just because sometimes you will need an library or application that is not available in a package, because it is too new or something. Ubuntu, Debian and all the binary distributions make it a bit complicated for embedded hardware.

In short, basically it all about choice. If you don't need a certain feature, just leave it out (USE flags).
