Most people have heard of the game show, Jeopardy! where contestants answer trivia questions—from the mundane to the obscure—to win money.

On Tuesday's episode of the long running game show, all three contestants couldn't give the correct answer when asked to finish the Lord's Prayer—arguably the most universally used prayer of the Christian faith.

The clue was:

“Matthew 6:9 says, ‘Our Father Which Art In Heaven’, This ‘Be Thy Name'.”

The answer was the word "Hallowed."

This miss by all three contestants had audience members and people on social medial screaming at the top of their lungs.

You can see the clip here:

People took to social media to express their shock.

Or in some cases, outrage.

Others were more understanding.

They recognized Christianity is not the only religion.

While the prayer is extremely well known among Christians, not everyone has heard it.

The number of people who identify as Christian has been dropping steadily.

The reactions from those on social media, while somewhat understandable, seem a bit extreme for what the question actually was.
