In its 22nd season, The Simpsons has not only received the blessings of the Vatican, but the family has now been taken into the church itself. In an article headlined, "Homer and Bart are Catholics," L'Osservatore Romano, the official newspaper of the Catholic Church, commented on Sunday that the animated sitcom -- the longest-running series on U.S. television -- depicts the Simpsons family praying at mealtimes, that the shows often deal with belief in an afterlife, and that "Christian faith, religion and questions about God are recurrent themes." The endorsement let Simpsons producer Al Jean scratching his head. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly on Monday, Jean noted that the Simpsons attend the "Presbylutheran" First Church of Springfield." He added, "We've pretty clearly shown that Hoer is not Catholic."
