Rash judgment
Question from D.A. on 03-11-2013:

I was watching a TV show where some contestants in a contest were performing a Shinto prayer ritual. Would it be rash judgment to think that they wouldn't have a Christian ritual on the show?

Answer by Catholic Answers on 03-12-2013:


Yes. You have no way of knowing what the producers would or would not include in their show. I will say though that you would be justified in being annoyed with a game that requires contestants to engage in a prayer ritual in order to compete (unless, of course, accommodations were made for players to refuse without penalty to participate in the ritual as a matter of conscience).
