DH is the same way sometimes. He was raised Catholic but does not practice. I believe it all has to do with being uneducated and sometimes a bit ignorant. I don't think my DH (or yours) does it to be mean, or racist per say, just thinking it's funny. Have you told him how much his comments offend or bother you? When I tell DH something is rude or uncalled fo rhe typically changes his tune pretty quick.

Thank you RaspberryBeret for my gorgeous siggy!

My dh is Jewish also, but I can understand how you're feeling because of the rest of my family. Although they're all Jewish, dh and I are the "crazy" ones that became frum My sil (from my side) and my bil (from dh's side) cannot make enough sarcastic comments about religion. With them, I have no problem ignoring them and tuning them out. After all, we're talking about in laws and one has to be careful there. But if it was my dh the one making those comments, I'd be direct. I'd tell him that he's hurting my feelings whenever he makes those comments and I'd suggest we educate ourselves together on religion (I say this because men are more likely to respond positively if you suggest you're not that "informed" either )
But for me, the most important thing would be to let him know that those comments hurt me. Not bother, or make uncomfortable. I'd use the word "hurt".
