During one of his visits Peter's father, Francis, discovers that Stewie has never been baptized, so without Lois' permission Peter and Francis go to church and have him baptized. Upon discovering this, Lois convinces Peter that Stewie should have been able to worship whomever he wanted regardless of his father's religion. Naturally Peter interprets Lois' wisdom the wrong way so decides to start his own religious group that praises the television character, Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli.

Though Francis performs the symbolic actions of Baptism correctly, the Baptism itself is not valid under current canon law. In order for a non-ordained person to deliver the sacrament, the receiver must be in imminent danger of death and a minister must not be present, of which neither conditions are satisfied. However, this error could likely have been done on purpose to show the irony that a devout Catholic such as Francis does not fully understand Baptism himself. See more
