Bible Contradiction? Burying and Saying Bye to Parents in Luke 9:59-62

Luke 9:59-62 states:

59 And He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, permit me first to go and bury my father.” 60 But He said to him, “Allow the dead to bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim everywhere the kingdom of God.” 61 Another also said, “I will follow You, Lord; but first permit me to say good-bye to those at home.” 62 But Jesus said to him, “No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

From this passage the Skeptic Annotated Bible states:

Jesus won’t even let his followers bury their dead parents or say farewell to their families before abandoning them.

They also marked this passage as a Bible contradiction specifically for violating verses like Exodus 20:12.

Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged…
