A propósito de religião e riso

Francisco José Viegas afirma que "uma religião sem riso, sem humor e sem alegria está sempre a pisar os caminhos do terror". Rememoro o fabuloso debate em O Nome da Rosa de Umberto Eco, entre Guilherme de Baskerville, Jorge de Burgos, Ubertino Casale e outros, acerca do riso (riso que acaba por estar no centro da trama narrativa). Da altercação surgiu a hipótese de Jesus não ter rido nunca. Assomo de inverdade.

O riso de Deus ouve-se sempre que nasce uma criança.

"But why doesn't the Gospel ever say that Christ laughed?" I asked, for no good reason. "Is Jorge right?"
"Legions of scholars have wondered whether Christ laughed. The question doesn't interest me much. I believe he never laughed, because, omniscient as the son of God had to be, he knew how we Christians would behave. . . ."

"Perhaps the mission of those who love mankind is to make people laugh at the truth, to make truth laugh, because the only truth lies in learning to free ourselves from insane passion for the truth."
