    WTF? They’re Presbylutheran. Reverend Lovejoy is married!

    Ah, the Vatican. So principled. The Simpsons are popular? Catholic! You say that Gandhi guy gets some good press? He’s a Catholic too! Buddha? Catholic!

    Buddha? Catholic!

    Funny you should mention that. The Church canonized Buddha as St. Josaphat about a millenium ago.
