In the spirit of treating every religion with the due they deserve, and not placing special treatment on any particular ones... leaving other religion to grow (~~fester?~~) in the area where we don't shine the light...

Let's have a "Mock Every Prophet/Religion Day".

Logistically it is also easier to deal with, since you are not restricted to only burning one particular religious figure. But can burn any particular one that happens to be easier to reach!

Plus with the advent of globalism, getting a whole variety of religious figures and books and etc... are much easier nowadays! Let's not limit ourselves.

If we increase the variety of religions we mock. Then that is a boon to the local economy! Since there be more economic niches for smaller business to establish their corner! Thus preventing bigger companies from crowding out other smaller corporations in producing items for that day, through their massive economics of scale.

The strange and wonderful history and prophesies of Mother Shipton https://books.googl...yJbAAAAcAAJ&pg=PP11
The sacred book of the new religion. Any who mock or criticise are blasphemers. [pocmloc, Jan 21 2015]

       There are many prophets who don't have religions, e.g. Mother Shipton. Should we start their religion in order to be able to mock it?

       — pocmloc, I see no reason why we shouldn't. (All hail Mother Shipton!)

       Slightly less likely to turn into Annual Burn a Cross on a Lawn Day, but not by much.
