an example of religious hypocrisy and bigotry

My parents were watching the local nightly news this evening when I walked by.

The news story on at the time was about a theft from a Hindu place of worship (I'm embarrassed that I don't know what the Hindus call their worshiping huts). Some religious statues made of precious metals were recently stolen, and the segment was giving exposure to the Hindu temple and the theft. In the process of this, some of their rituals were briefly outlined.

My mom (a Christian) commented on how the rituals were stupid, and then went on to make fun of how some of the people were dressed. Oh the irony!

All I can say is that the apple fell really far away from the tree.
