Whilst I do think one should be able to laugh at anything and everything (and nothing should be exempt from criticism), there exists, I think, something that can be said of what is and is not tasteful humor, given the context.
For example, a joke about the idiocy of militant pseudo-intellectuals among actual intellectuals is very well received and taken with a grain of salt and a polite giggle.
The same joke, on Funnyjunk however, is a rally call for counter-atheist circle jerking.
That being said, you seem like a well-educated fellow who more than understands this distinguishment and is in no way looking to viciously tear apart atheists. The same cannot be said of the proponents who will find your joke funny, however.
First off, I'd like to say that the ability to laugh at yourself is important. However, assuming that you are a Brony (as I can infer from your name and avatar), I think I can demonstrate to you the phenomenon of mass domestication in both the sense that it has afflicted Bronies and Atheists. At first, they were both minority groups were militant and proud of it. As the majority began to get angry with them, their contempt was well expressed, and the result is domesticated minority groups. These are atheists and bronies both who continue to be so, but actively (and sometimes viciously) antagonize the more militant members of their own group, rather than chuckle at them. In fact, they are often *more* aggressive towards them, if only because they fear the criticism themselves. This is a sad state of affairs indeed.
