To wit, to who?

I'm trying to decide whether to be more grateful to Greg Craven (Opinion, 4/11) for injecting some balancing wit into current public debate on the merits of theism, or to his respondents (Letters, 5/11) for demonstrating that we Christians are not the only folks who take ourselves too seriously at times. In this AD (After Dawkins) era, when it's become standard literary fare to laugh off all religious believers as simpletons with "an imaginary friend", it's a little bemusing to have non-believers taking offence at the occasional bit of Aussie repartee coming the other way.

Time to lighten up, guys ... or we might start praying for you.
