Pastor uses Simpsons to help keep the faith

Simpsons News — Posted 31 Oct, 2005 by DisgruntledGoat

Homer Simpson sleeps through church, refers to God as "omnivorous," and once sold his soul to the devil for a doughnut.

"The Simpsons are the most spiritual family on television," said Mr. Reinarz, pastor of First Presbyterian Church-Grand Prairie. "They pray, they talk to God, they deal with everyday problems through their faith – even if it is a little distorted sometimes."
