If you teach a fool to pray...

I was reading about the "religious police" in Saudi Arabia who go around the cities making sure that no one breaks sharia. Often these people have marks on their foreheads due to their extremely zealous bowing to the ground on their prayer rugs. This reminds me of an old Russian saying - "If you teach a fool to pray, he'll bash up his forehead".
