From the troubled streets of Ferguson to atrocities in Iraq, it's hard to find something to smile about -- but we do, thanks to The Simpsons.

    Great work for a newbie. Good humor and excellent stories. I look forward to more.

    Good job, Kimberly!

  • Martha Mann

    Just the right amount of tongue in cheek, no discernable proofreading errors. Altogether well done and, most importantly, well written.

  • I also like your good work Kimberly and absence of sarcasm in your humor. You have to love spiritual people (and those who are trying to be spiritual even when they’re not!) to be a good religion writer.

  • Jane Reoch

    An outstanding article that was informative, relevant and delightful to read. Keep this up, which I know is hard to do.

  • Don’t remember what episode it’s in but here’s my vote for “Best religion joke ever from “The Simpsons”:

    Marge Simpson: “I know God would never ask a mother to give up her child for the world…again.”
