Some churchy dude in England is trying to make mass hip again with poorly integrated pop culture influences:
Churchgoers at All Saints Church in Kesgrave, northeast of London, have been invited to attend four classes from the end of April on each of the four main Simpson family members ? Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa... Reverend Spittle says that each episode had Christian themes, even though Homer once described his religion as "you know, the one with all the well-meaning rules that don't work in real life. Uh, Christianity."
I also wonder if the reverend remembers this exchange from the episode where a newly-smart Homer disproves the existence of God:
Homer: Hey, Flanders, heading for church? Well, I thought I could save you a little time.
Ned: Oooh, found a new shortcut?
Homer: Better. I was working on a flat tax proposal and I accidentally proved there's no God. [shows Flanders a sheet of paper with complex figuring on it]
Ned: [flustered] We'll just see about that. [reads the paper] Uh-oh. Well, maybe he made a mistake. [checks it again] Nope, it's airtight. Can't let this little doozy get out. [he uses a lighter to burn the "proof", while in the background, Homer puts more copies of his no-God paper on the windshields of nearby cars as he whistles the Battle Hymn of the Republic]
