My take on this would be that the writers were simply trying to create a humorous event.
They have mocked virtually every type of belief and institution in the country, and frequently from other countries around the world.
I loved it when Homer and Apu climbed to the top of the mountain to meet with the guru, who gave them three questions. Homer then wasted all three
questions, and Apu had wasted his time.
The Simpsons lampoon EVERYONE, so this is not out of character for them.
