Aristotle’s Virtues and Homer’s Doughnut: Vatican Gives Simpson’s an OK

A recent article in the Vatican’s News Paper entitled “Aristotle’s Virtues and Homer’s Doughnut” acknowledges that Homer as an everyman has the same kinds of trials of faith that normal people face sketchup 8 deutsch download kostenlos.

Every few years overly critical social critics share their feelings on why the Simpson’s are “OK”  I remember a very long while back reading a Slate article about why the Simpson’s were ok family programming herunterladen.

20 years ago Simpson’s were edgy compared to other programming on TV, especially for a cartoon.  Paving the way for Show’s which are a lot edgier like Family Guy, South Park, and all of “Adult Swim”, Simpson’s is still not a show i would sit down and watch with my family microsoft planner herunterladen.

While most Simpson’s episodes end well, and they always stick together as a family, the issues they address often don’t coincide with my Mom and Dad’s more conservative views creo 2.0 kostenlosen.

“Aristotle’s Virtues and Homer’s Doughnut” points out that Homer’s trials often lead him to a last resort of asking God, or Superman for help, but my take would be that he then find’s the resolution within himself herunterladen.

I am not the “Good Christian” I once was, but it strikes me that the Simpson’s is the opposite of Christian teachings.  Homer when faced with trials asks God for help and then resolves the problem himself, not stronger in his faith.  “God helps those who help themselves” has always seemed a bit of a “cop out”.  If you get through a trial because you believe God gave you the strength,that would be strength through faith, but Homer only comes to resolutions after asking for help and then when it fails to appear tackling it himself.  This is more of a strength despite faith.  Reverse psychology on God’s part windows 7 update cancel? Maybe? More likely Homer finds strength because of paternal instinct, self preservation, or because if he died the show would likely end, and Fox can’t see it’s cash cow end pokemon rom legalen. Doh!
