Nothing is above ridicule. Ridiculous things are by definition meant to be ridiculed. Freedom to ridicule talks about freedom of speech and self expression, its rights and its responsibilities. Freedom of speech is meant to protect ideas people don't like. It's the foundation of a civilization. We need to be able to criticize ideas without fear of violence. The painting is a jester with a sword with balls as handle, that pierces through the top religions, but at the same time it pierces its tongue for he/she is not above ridicule also.
