Does your 'God' beat up their 'God' ?

Farmers bare all for 'rain God', CNN reports. It's the quotes that get me. The Nepalese doing the baring take their beliefs seriously. The single quotes around 'rain God' are condescending and snide.

Imagine the uproar if CNN ran this headline: Christians pray to 'God'. Flame me not. I'm illustrating the point.
