And the Lord Said "Let There Be Simpsons"

Simpsons News — Posted 05 Jul, 2003 by Scott

We all know about the religious influence The Simpsons show has caused in the past. "There have been papers as well as books published about finding the spiritual messages within the show that depicts the Simpson family foibles on Fox every Sunday night at 8.It's a phenomenon that's even been discussed in houses of worship, and it's currently the theme of a Sunday morning class at the First Presbyterian Church of Bonita Springs."Louis Thompson, parish associate for counseling ministry, is leading the class that explores the fabric of faith and spirituality in "The Simpsons" just as the book, "The Gospel According to The Simpsons" does. Read the whole story about this fabulous class and how their classmates, young and old, get involved by clicking Here.

It became a group project as several of the class members took turns analyzing different scenes of the show where Homer (being guilted into the excursion by daughter Lisa) takes his wife and children to a sushi restaurant for dinner and is told he's been poisoned by some bad blowfish.
