"Homer the Heretic" ... is such an awesome episode, it's worth missing church just to see it!
5 June 2011 | by (Planet Namek) – See all my reviews

Homer attempts to go against church and pretty much religion by saying it's a waste of time to get up and go to church... and he'd rather just stay at home and do squat instead. He says he can give God all the attention at home and still love him and what not without going to church and wasting an hour or so of his life there. His wife seems to be completely against this notion and wants to force him to go. Homer is adamant to stick to his perspective... so he stays at home... where a fire starts and Flanders attempts to save his life. Homer finds a newfound belief in God... and sees a vision with God where he complains that he'd rather die and be in heaven rather than suffer through life. God tells Homer to wait as he will die soon enough. This is an awesome episode that questions fanatical religious thinking mentality.
