Okay, so do you find this funny or offensive, or just plain naughty?

The Jewish boy is screwing up in school getting bad grades so his parents decide to put him in a Catholic school for the firm structure. Within weeks his grades are soaring, and he's much better at home. His parents asked him why the sudden change and he says, "I saw that guy on the wall nailed up on a cross and knew they meant business!"

Is it a guilty laugh? Or should we not laugh? My SIL hear this joke and got really pissed, my Jewish friend thought it was hilarious! I dunno! I thought it was appreciative of others beliefs personally. What's your perception.
