I have watched a Turkish TV show/movie that might have been talking a little bit about علمانية (secularism), however some funny things happened in this show (stuff that has nothing to do with Kufr), and I laughed at it. Do I agree with the kufr in this case or not, as I know what I did has nothing to do with Kufr.

First of all because I wasn't laughing at Kufr, and let's say I laughed at something that is Kufr I don't have to agree with it when I laugh. I searched many fatwas on Islamweb, Islamqa, and I sent questions to a few scholars, but I haven't gotten an answer yet. I always like to ask because if I didn't I keep having "waswas" (doubts).

You do not become kafir by laughing at something that is kurf or non Islamic. – muslim1 Jan 9 '13 at 17:58
yeah unless if you agree it right? – Fuad khattab Jan 9 '13 at 18:38

Whoever disbelieves in Allah after his belief... except for one who is forced [to renounce his religion] while his heart is secure in faith. But those who [willingly] open their breasts to disbelief, upon them is wrath from Allah , and for them is a great punishment - Al Nahl - 106

I am quite sure that you have not opened your breast to disbelief in this case.

However we must take care so much about our belief, because disbelief approaches us in a very hard to detect way:

قال رسول الله (صلی الله علیه و آله و سلم): دبیب الشرک فی امتّی کدبیب النملة السوداء علیٰ الصخرة الصماء فی اللیلة الظلماء

The Holy Prophet (PBUH): Creeping of Shirk in my [Muslim] nation is infidelity more hidden than the creeping of black ant on a black rock in the pitch-darkness of the night. Reference

How about .. if my friend called me "magican " , ( HE was mocking me ) , then I laughed @ him is that kufr or not , and it's also important to say that I didn't agree that and I've never say to him that "Yes I am " , and he said it in a pretty funny , if you can answer in Arabic answer me because I am Arabian , I am from Jordan – Fuad khattab Jan 10 '13 at 11:10
@Fuadkhattab Personally I don't suppose the simple friendly conversations that are not changing our beliefs Kurf. – Ali Jan 10 '13 at 11:53
