House: "Small Sacrifices" Review

On Dr. House's long list of people who annoy him to no end, the devoutly religious fall somewhere between authority figures and snot-nosed brats. Which is why, when the show opened with the patient-to-be recreating the Crucifixion, nails and all, it was pretty clear this would be one of those episodes where House didn't have to look far to find an enemy.
