Fish, Fights, and "Ritual Aggression"

Continuing the Evolution Week series.

In a couple of posts below, including the comments section, I have discussed the trend of modifying religious symbols in order to make a point about evolution. A researcher from the University of Georgia has studied the battle between the Jesus fish (symbol of Christianity) and the Darwin fish, typically found on car bumpers and trunks.

My point is to cover the coverage of the debate, rather than debate the actual merits of one side or the other. Is it respectful to edit religious symbols and iconography to make a point?
