The Onion's World Peace-Inducing Religion Reporting (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)

First Posted: 07/19/11 06:17 PM ET   Updated: 09/18/11 06:12 AM ET

HuffPost Religion would like to pay homage to America's finest Pulitzer-deserving news source: The Onion.

With a finger on the pulse of American and global (dis)belief, The Onion consistently churns out the hard-hittingest, holier-than-thou religion reporting and commentary.

Inspired by the lead story in this week's print edition ("Vatican Reverses Stance On Gay Marriage After Meeting Tony And Craig"), we decided to compile the best of this paper's God-centric gab.

It was tough. The Onion's archives are an abundant treasure trove of divinely inspired investigation. From getting the scoop on Jesus' conversion to Islam to exposing the Dalai Lama's history of violence, there really is no rival to this institution of pristine journalistic integrity.

So without further delay, since the end times are oh so near, here are our favorite religion reports from The Onion.
