“An Indiana woman who wanted to honor her late husband with a headstone that captured his interests in sports and the outdoors is suing a Catholic church for refusing to install it. *** The headstone is shaped like a couch and features images of a deer, a dog and color logos of NASCAR and the Indianapolis Colts.”

She removed the engraving of Peyton Manning walking on water — after he went to Denver. Isn’t that sufficient? Aren’t football, racing and deer hunting recognized forms of worship (considering the number of Americans doing them on any given Sunday) ?
