Storyline

Homer accidentally destroys the church. The church is rebuilt with corporate money; soon after, product placements become a major feature of church life. Disgusted with this turn of events, Lisa vows to find a faith that speaks to her. Lisa discovers the Buddhist Temple. Inside, she speaks to Lenny and Carl, as well as Richard Gere. Lisa tells her family that she's become a Buddhist. After this revelation, Lisa must deal with the reactions of many of her loved ones, who worry that they won't know how to cope with a Buddhist in the family, especially at Christmas time.
