Christian Festival To Host "Ned Flanders Night"

 

The Greenbelt Festival, a Christian arts event in Cheltenham, UK are dedicating an evening to Simpsons character Ned Flanders, saying that he is even more closely associated with Christianity than Mother Teresa or Pope John Paul II.

Simon Jenkins, organizer of the tribute, said "He's a very ardent believer...and at the same time he's very humble. Although he's got very strong beliefs, he's not thrusting them down anyone's throat and he's not being unpleasant about it."

A satirical fashion show and tribute band Ned Zeppelin will also be featured at the event, which runs for four days later this month.

  um  
 
do they realize that part of the joke is how overly fundamentalist ned is? he's not exactly the kind of character you'd want to have as the symbol for your group if you're looking for converts. the fact that they see ned as a normal, yet "ardent believer" shows you how nutty they are. as a christian, i've never found myself agreeing with anything ned has said in regards to religion.
