ORLANDO, FLORIDA, February 19, 2001: Mark Pinsky, religion writer for the Sentinel newspaper here is publishing a book, "The Gospel According to The Simpsons: The Spiritual Life of America's Most Animated Family." His thesis is that despite its reputation (and beneath the jokes and sarcasm), "The Simpsons" television show treats God, faith and spirituality in a supportive, favorable fashion. He's included a chapter on the treatment of Hinduism, through the recurring character Apu. Informed that some Hindus have taken strong exception to the program, he is soliciting the opinion of Hindus on "The Simpsons" and the treatment of Hinduism, specifically if we feel the show treats Hinduism in a "supportive, favorable fashion," as he contends it does for Christianity. Write to him at "Source" above.
