Author claims L'Osservatore praise for Simpsons was misinterpreted
October 21, 2010
The author of a much-discussed article in the Vatican newspaper about The Simpsons has complained that his words have been misinterpreted.
Father Francesco Occhetta, who wrote in L’Osservatore Romano that the television show should be commended for raising serious issues about faith, denied reports that he had classified the Simpson characters as good Catholics. “I wouldn’t say that at all,” he said; “I would say they’re people of faith.”
