Ned Becomes Valued Member of Simpsons

Simpsons News — Posted 06 Feb, 2005 by MrBurns

Good heavens! Ned Flanders has come into his own. A zealous instrument of God, Ned has long been instrumental to “The Simpsons” as it lampoons organized religion. Before on “The Simpsons,” Ned was a secondary figure — Homer’s pious next-door neighbor. But the values he embodies in exaggerated form now monopolize the political scene.

We always satirize who’s in power and what the cultural zeitgeist is, so currently the point of view Ned has is a little more ripe for satire.” These days, Ned represents the nation’s ruling point of view.
