“The Simpsons” have accomplished a lot about faith that they even spawned a e-book referred to as “The Gospel In line with The Simpsons”.
However, the perfect one-liner they’ve ever had about faith… and favourite satirical quote from all the 20 years of the sequence… got here within the episode the place Homer and Bart go Catholic and a crew of Reverend Lovejoy, Ned Flanders and Marge go to win them again.
No assertion has ever summed up the folly of “my non secular beliefs and solely my beliefs are the assured, definitive reality” like when Reverend Lovejoy says: “We’re right here to convey you again to the one true religion: the Western Department of American Reform Presby-Lutheranism.”
Bart Simpson as soon as requested his father concerning the household’s non secular id. Homer classically replied, “You understand, the one with all of the well-meaning guidelines that do not work in actual life. Uh, Christianity.”
