Ignorance Re Judaism Is No Excuse For This

On the occasion of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, the Toronto Sun's Anthony Furey reduces the entirety of Judaism to an insulting quip about a burger topping:
I'm puzzled that a number of otherwise rational people I know won't get bacon on their burgers because they believe some chap went into the desert centuries ago without any witnesses and supposedly received the true word of God from an angel.
I can assure you, Anthony, that there's a bit more to it than that.

I don't really care what Furey does or does not believe. Were I him, however, I would not be so quick to flaunt my ignorance.
