Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAesop: One would think Bart and Homer had converted to Satanism or Scientology based on the way Marge, Lovejoy, Ned, and the rest of the town treat them. The only negative aspects of Catholicism that are actually mentioned in the episode are the lack of meat on Fridays (which most Catholics only observe during Lent) and a subtle joke about Catholic priests doing inappropriate things with children. This, combined with the fact that characters of other religions, such as Krusty or Apu, rarely if ever get chastised for their beliefs, means that the message about Christians learning to be accepting of those of different religious branches is highly lessened, as the Catholics in this episode had [[InformedWrongness no real reason to be hated in the first place]].


Added DiffLines:

* DoubleStandard: Bart and Homer's conversion to Catholicism is met with hatred and disgust (especially from Marge), the town ostracizing Marge for their change of faith, and Marge, Lovejoy, and Ned ''kidnapping'' Bart in an attempt to get him to change back, while the worst Lisa got upon [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS13E6SheOfLittleFaith converting to Buddhism]] was Ned hiding his sons in a bunker and Marge and Lovejoy trying to use Christmas to win her back.


Added DiffLines:

* EskimosArentReal: When Lisa mentions how she decided to convert to Buddhism, Father Sean thinks she's talking about an imaginary friend
