Homer Simpson is Catholic, Vatican paper declares - Yahoo! News

But executive producer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly on Monday he was in "shock and awe" at the latest assertion, adding that the Simpsons attend the "Presbylutheran" First Church of Springfield.

"We've pretty clearly shown that Homer is not Catholic," Jean said. "I really don't think he could go without eating meat on Fridays -- for even an hour."

In December 2009, the Osservatore Romano described the show as "tender and irreverent, scandalous and ironic, boisterous and profound, philosophical and sometimes even theological, nutty synthesis of pop culture and of the lukewarm and nihilistic American middle class."

"The Simpsons", which introduced the catch-phrase "D'oh", is the longest-running prime-time TV series in the United States and is now in its 22nd season.

Alright. I don't know what's worse that this made me laugh or that I immediately said 'Well... Homer does habitually abuse the boy'.

It's no wonder the vatican thought homer and bart were catholic. In the episode they were watching, they did become catholic. Like most things in the Simpsons though, it only lasted an episode.

There was also an episode where Homor started his own religion.
