    No need to keep reposting. Boring

    Just so some people don't think "APU" is a religion, he practices Hinduism.

    If you're going to consider Apu Hindu content, then Krusty and Kent Brockman are your Jewish content.

    We could have Jesus. He's appeared in episodes. He was Jewish.

    Since you guys keep discussing religions, here are all the Religions in the show. I know I could've swore Hinduism was also in the show because we all know Apu is Hindu. But there is no mention of it in wiki. Only 5 religions were mentioned and only 2 got introduced to the game, Christianty and Buddism. Other 3 were Judasim, Islam and Hinduism. So it's up to EA to add the other 3 to the game or not. Here are references by wiki.



    Character attitudes

    Most of the town, including the Simpsons, attend church on Sundays, indicating that religion is an important part of everyday life. The most religious characters on the show are Ned Flanders and Reverend Timothy Lovejoy. Flanders, a graduate of Oral Roberts University, is an ultra-conservative Christian and appears to express little tolerance for other faiths and sexualities, claiming they are all hedonistic and will go to Hell. Flanders is still perhaps the most genuinely compassionate character on the show and is an exemplar of charity and the golden rule. He usually has a positive outlook on life and does not go out of his way to express his intolerance. Lovejoy seems to resent the fact that Dr Julius Hibbert's family joined the first African Methodist Episcopal Church of Springfield, while Ned tells Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, who is a Hindu, that he might as well be praying to Hawkman though, in a Season 9, Lovejoy performs a Hindu wedding ceremony. In another episode, Lovejoy says to Ned Flanders, during an annoying phone call, "Ned, have you considered any of the other major religions? They're all pretty much the same."
    Although Homer attends church, has been baptized and has even met God, he has indicated that he is not religious. In The Simpsons Movie, before entering the church, he says, "Relax, those pious morons are too busy talking to their phony-baloney God." Lisa Simpson was portrayed as Christian in the episode "Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment", however, since "She of Little Faith", she has been a Buddhist. She still accepts her family's beliefs, goes to church with them and celebrates Christian holidays.

    Deities

    God has appeared several times, with a five-fingered hand (compared to other characters' four fingers), watching over and sometimes interacting with the show's characters (usually Flanders or Homer). In many episodes, Jesus is portrayed as a man with a long brown beard and white clothing, particularly when Homer is sent to heaven. The Hindu deity Vishnu sits in the center of the earth, controlling the world with numerous levers.[9] There are also numerous references to the Hindu deity Ganesh, mostly by Homer when interacting with Apu. The Devil appeared in the episode Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment, while other episodes have shown both Ned Flanders and Mr. Burns as The Devil. There has also been references to Krishna and even Spongebob Squarepants in Deity form.


    Judaism

    Springfield is home to a small but active Jewish community. The most prominent members include Krusty the Clown, his father Rabbi Krustofsky, and an old Jewish retiree who is known as Old Jewish Man. Krusty has his Bar Mitzvah in one episode. Krusty, however, is not very observant. A montage of pictures at the end of a Simpsons Christmas episode shows Krusty lying intoxicated in the gutter, while Rabbi Krustofsky and the old Jewish retiree run into each other at a local Chinese restaurant on Christmas morning. In the episode "Today I am a Clown", Krusty learns he is not quite Jewish because he never had a Bar Mitzvah. In that episode, his Itchy and Scratchy cartoon, "A Briss Before Dying" parodies Jewish circumcision. Itchy is about to be circumcised by Scratchy, but instead cuts him into pieces, melts and turns him into a goblet and stamps on him, shouting "Mazel Tov!" Krusty back-announces "And that's what I believe in now."

    Islam

    Excluding the odd reference by Rev. Lovejoy to "churches, synagogues and mosques," condemning Krusty the Clown (who is Jewish) for corrupting the young in one episode, the religion of Islam or Muslim characters had not featured heavily in the show's history until the 2008 episode "Mypods and Boomsticks". In the episode "Marge Simpson in: 'Screaming Yellow Honkers'", Homer proclaims, "I'm gonna die! Jesus, Allah, Buddha, I love you all!" In "The Seven-Beer Snitch", the Simpsons go to see "Song of Shelbyville." There is a lyric in the main song that says that Shelbyville is home to Christians, Muslims, and Jews "although not many of the last two." This makes a Rabbi and an Imam in attendance feel uncomfortable. In "Mayored to the Mob", Homer's bodyguard instructor says, "As a bodyguard your only loyalty is to your protectee; not to your family, not to your country, not to Muhammad." To which Homer asks, "Even during Ramadan?". In "Grift of the Magi" Krusty touched upon many religions by saying, "So, have a merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, kwazy Kwanzaa, a tip-top T?t, and a solemn, dignified Ramadan." In the episode Holidays of Future Passed, Sharia law is mentioned and Millhouse is seen wearing a Niqab at University of Michigan–Dearborn (Dearborn, Michigan being the city with the largest Muslim community in the US).

    I demand more content scientifically disproving religions. Where are the dinosaurs, missing links, carbon dating machines, cosmic radiation that proves the big bang??


    Naw, I'm just messing around. Everyone gets to believe what they want and I think its important to include those beliefs into the game to the extent that they have appeared in the show.

    The bottom line is that this is a game about a TV show and so the content must be focused within that finite medium.

    As long as they keep adding characters and buildings I'm sure there will eventually be enough to satisfy everyone.

    Apu prays to that little statue thing. Krusty and Kent do nothing Jewish. I'm offended.
