What is the definition of true Christians? Because on the show the Simpson family are Christians.--Penguin 00:43, 19 June 2007 (EDT)

Eh, I'm gonna tread lightly on this topic. There is a notion among some evangelicals, that there are certain things that people must do to become TRUE Christians. Most involve a process known as becoming "saved" in where you must ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior. Its a very literal interpretation of the Bible. Different sects of evangelism use this idea to discredit different sects of Christianity, ranging from Mormonism to Catholicism.--Elamdri 03:09, 19 June 2007 (EDT)

The description of the characters seems a bit selective. Does "Bart...makes a horrible role model" need to be included? Bart's character should not be described in terms of how good a role model he is; it's irrelevant and opinionated. And why is Lisa described as simply a "Buddhist Liberal?" If I had to describe her to someone who had never seen the show, I might touch on her main attributes first such as being very studious, idealistic, achievement-oriented girl with an appreciation for jazz music and the baritone saxophone. Her being Buddhist and liberal may be true, but does little to describe her character. It provides an underlying tone of bias against 'The Simpsons.'--Xenophobia 7:41 P.M., 6 August 2007 (EDT)

Fox News

I cited a source. Did the person who removed this cite one? Maestro 16:23, 1 October 2007 (EDT)

Did you even read your source? The story only cited Groening - a known joker and mischief-maker who writes fiction for a living - as the source of the claim; Fox News denied there was ever a threat of a lawsuit. Either you were duped by Groening or you intentionally presented the story as serious and true in an attempt to deceive people.--Conservateur 11:15, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
Then it should be quite easy to find a quote from Fox News denying the rumor. The only cite here is Conservateur. Maestro 12:42, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
You're right. Took me two seconds.[1]--Conservateur 13:16, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
And also, your own original citation stated that Fox News denied the threat.--Conservateur 13:19, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
So Groening says yea, and Fox says nay. Still seems up in the air to me. I can see a 'joker' lying, as well as a corporation denying they did something that looked foolish in retrospect. Let's agree to disagree. Maestro 13:43, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
I don't agree to that.--Conservateur 13:45, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
Straight from an episode of the Simpsons! (the one where the teachers went on strike). I love it! Maestro 16:35, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
Nice ;-) Was hoping you'd catch that one.--Conservateur 16:52, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
Not really...why? Maestro 17:56, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
Are you dim witted? Read my last post about contacting. --şŷŝôρ-₮KṢρёаќǃ 17:58, 2 October 2007 (EDT)

List of controversial or objectionable moments?

The Simpsons is a massively popular show and I think it'd be helpful and important to list some of the controversial or objectional moments in the show in the article. There are many episodes most conservapedians would find noteworthy, such as episodes about creationism, gay marriage, political scandals, the Iraq war, and at least a half-dozen about Christianity... if this sounds like a good idea it won't take me long at all to type up a list of episodes, summaries and references.
