What if we highlight the fog?

This is one of those "what if" posts. What if newspapers were run by rational people who decided to highlight the fuzziness of religious people's brains by blurring their heads in every photo in the paper, while printing clear photos of atheists? Wouldn't that be fun?

It would be a public service that truly helps readers by telling them which people are dealing with reality and which have never heard of it.

My only question is this: should we blur the popey guy's vestments and hat? Or just give him a fuzzy head? I say leave the vestments alone. They're a resoundingly negative element of the popey guy's image, reminding onlookers that he lives in a big, gold palace. What's your opinion on this very important topic?
