Unless it's extremely overt, then how could you prove it was intentional, accidental, Freudian or even imagined from a viewer's own bias.

Personally i think it should be treated the same as offensive language if it seems overwhelmingly intentional, even if it's satire. But only for little kids shows.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

And you reach this conclusion in what way?

By how a frequent message of political satire is don't trust the bill of goods you're being sold. A critical aim of satire is to point out the failures in efforts of organizations/people to enact control but make it known it is quite an attempted goal, just its success is normally mocked in satire.

This is the kind of elements of documented of what satire is about.

Okay? It should be a requirement! The studios should be forced to rape and slaughter (not necessarily in that order) every sacred cow imaginable for the entertainment of the children. If these kids grow up with a single reverent bone in their bodies, we have failed them as adults.

Don't let those gnomes and their illusions get you down. They're just gnomes and illusions.

Political satire doesn't necessarily have an agenda or seek to influence the political process. It commonly aims to provide entertainment in a way which pokes fun at the positions or behaviours of politicos or the political establishment. It provides an element of critical thinking but in an amusing way.

It often goes over the heads of younger children but older kids often get it and as far as I can see there's no harm in getting them to do a bit of critical thinking of their own.

For goodness sake, as atheists, don't we bang the drum of critical thinking? Don't we satirize religion?
