* BrokenAesop: Christianity is criticized a lot during this episode, while Buddhism is presented in a more positive light, almost as if it is the best possible faith one could have. Also, Lisa critizes her local Christian Church for having become too commercialized and joins another religion, only to return soon afterwards, because she just can't miss her Christmas presents. 1) Buddhism just like any other organized religion, including Christianity, has both good as bad aspects. Not mentioning or mocking those at all is very one-sided. 2) As much as Lisa criticizes her local Christian Church it doesn't seem to be that bad after all, as she joins it again without much cuss. 3) Why did she criticize the local Church for being too commercialized if she joins it again out of the same materialistic greed as the other churchgoers she formerly criticized?

* MoralDissonance: At the start of the episode Lisa leaves her Christian faith because she feels her local church has become too commercialized. She then become a Buddhist, but is confronted by a dilemma because her parents try to lure her back in by celebrating Christmas (in the incorrect notion that this feast is exclusively a Christian holiday: the feast itself was already celebrated by pagans centuries before Christianity claimed it). Lisa likes celebrating Christmas, but at the same time she wants to stick to her Buddhist beliefs. Then Richard Gere informs her that while Buddhism is about one finding inner peace, it is also about respecting the diversity of other religions based on love and compassion - thus, Lisa is free to celebrate any holiday with her family including Christmas. So... when you think about it: Lisa now more or less joins Christianity again for the same reason she originally abandoned it: she just wants to have her Christmas presents and take part in a holiday celebration that has become increasingly commercialized in recent times! ** It's even worse when you remember "Homer the Heretic", which had Homer portrayed as inherently wrong for shunning the church, whereas here Lisa is portrayed as inherently right. * OutOfCharacterMoment: Marge is very intolerant of Lisa leaving Christianity and joining Buddhism, while Homer isn't particularly bothered by it.

In ''Homer the Heretic'' Homer felt going to Church was a waste of time, but raised some excellent thought provoking points about it. Despite that Lisa shunned him for doing so. In this episode Lisa is the one having good reasons to leave the increasingly commercialized Church of Springfield and not wanting to go to Church anymore. The odd thing is that she has criticized the local Church before, but usually separated this from her genuine belief in God. Now she seems to have put the two together and chooses for another religion, though one could raise a lot of similar critical points about Buddhism as one could about Christianity.

* CelebrityStar: Richard Gere{{Bowdlerization}}, WordOfGod, and WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally, there was supposed to be a scene where an Arab man named Hassan Jay Salam is arrested for shooting the rocket into the church because the rocket has his initials on it (which are actually Homer's initials), but, because of the 9/11 attacks and fear of backlash from Arab viewers, the producers had the scene cut. The DVD commentary talks about the missing scene.

Lisa abandons her Christian faith (after the local church sells ad space inside of it to cover the damages done by Homer and Bart's toy rocket) and opts for a new one that still allows her to be close to God, Buddhism. When words gets around, Lisa stands her grounds but for how long.
