Question of the week: how much should TV respect religion?

Can’t see anything going wrong with this question, can you?

So here’s the thing: a robust, post-Enlightenment society needs to be able to critique and question anything, including religions – that much is a given. But should TV be one of those things that critiques it? If it, is there a line TV shouldn’t cross, and if so, where is it? Is comedy allowed to satirise religions? In short:

How much should TV respect religion?
