Religion is an awkward topic. But heck, it's kinda fun to squirm a bit every now and then. So here's some of the irk and the smirk of religion in a (partially) post-religious age. 

Super-powered religion: California artist Mark Bryan sees tanks in the shape of churches and steeples built of missiles. (And his online gallery is clean, attractive and easy to use.)

I believe in Lego: It's part art, part snark, and part straight-up Word of God. With a Lego set to die for, Brendan Powell Smith has masterfully created Lego dioramas of over 300 Bible stories. The stories–with titles like "Massacre of the Peaceful, Unsuspecting People," "Bestiality," and "When to Stone Your Children"–are conveniently rated for nudity, sexual content, cursing and violence.

I Married the Pastor: He leads a small Bible Belt church; she likes pedicures and "magazines with pretty pictures." This is her take on things. This blog is a satirical, endearing, and delightfully vain insider's look at the daily life of the faithful.
