Yahoo news is reporting that Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury might be performing on “The Simpsons”. The Simpsons have always had big name stars on their show, including Tony Blair and Mick Jaggar. Williams gave an interview where he praised the Simpsons for being on the mark for how society is. The Simpsons are probably the most religious family on TV, so Williams starring in a show wouldn’t be that out of line. Even though Homer might drink beer and get on his kids’ for being screw ups, he still drags himself to church, even when he’d rather be watching football.
Pretty much every normal American is a fan of the Simpsons, because the Simpsons act like Americans do. One non-fan, President George W. Bush said: “We need a nation closer to ‘The Waltons’ than ‘The Simpsons.”‘ Maybe that is why our country is so screwed up right now. Even though the Homer Simpson is religious, he doesn’t wear it on his sleeve and use it to push his agenda, like Bush does. I’m sure Ma and Pa Walton would love what Bush is doing, I’m sure they were devout Christians. But you see, Lisa Simpson is a Buddhist, and Homer doesn’t mind, he is open to all religions, and if President Bush saw that, maybe he too would understand how the world works, instead of going to war for no reason.
Anyways, the Simpsons are always doing new and crazy things, and this is something new and cool. I can’t wait to see the episode.
