HOMER SIMPSON THEOLOGY.

"Ironically, the Christian theology represented by The Simpsons--salvation by works as well as grace--may come closest to that enunciated by Pope John Paul II in late 2000.... The pontiff proclaimed that all who live a just life will be saved, even if they do not believe in Jesus. That sounds a lot like Homer Simpson."--Author Mark I. Pinsky, in his just-released new book, The Gospel According to the Simpsons: The Spiritual Life of the World's Most Animated Family (Westminster John Knox)
