* In the non-recent past, when a Jew left the faith and married a non-Jew, it was seen as such a betrayal that [[IHaveNoSon his or her family would consider him or her dead.]] They might even sit Shiva, mourning just as if he or she really had died. Afterward, they would not speak to him or her even if he or she were standing in front of them, because logically they could not see or talk to a dead person. The attitude is understandable if you take into account the way Jewish communities were frequently harassed and persecuted by the people around them; besides betraying religion and culture, she had effectively defected to the enemy. Orthodox Jews sometimes still do this.

** George converts to Latvian Orthodoxy briefly for a girlfriend, only to lose the girlfriend anyway. (According to TheOtherWiki, the writer of that episode had no idea that Latvian Orthodox was a real sect -- he was trying to make up a fictional one.)

* Shown in flashback in ''UglyHill'', where its shown that Hastings was attempting to convert to catholicism to marry his first wife Hope, at her request due to her parents being staunchly catholic. Hastings himself is agnostic and completely uninterested in religion, considering it to be a waste of time. It becomes a moot point due to Hastings accidently destroying the local churches saint statues, and getting himself barred for life.
