Minister heads discussion of religion in "The Simpsons"

Simpsons News — Posted 21 Nov, 2003 by MrBurns

Are the Simpsons one of the most Christian families on television? Does the Springfield of Ned Flanders and Apu provide an example of different religions and spiritualities?

Shawn Galyen, a minister working with the Georgetown chapter of the Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship, offered his answers to these questions during "The Gospel According to the Simpsons," a discussion sponsored by the University of Virginia Chapter of the Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship.

Speaking before a large audience, Galyen used author Mark Pinsky's book "The Gospel According to the Simpsons" as a basis for a discussion about the role religion and spirituality play in the television series and the ideas embodied by various Simpsons characters. Read the rest at The Simpsonian.

"If 'The Simpsons' can help you, use it." Galyen said.
