So shallow, it’s deep

When I started the Sticky Egg, I chose to focus on what some people might consider the ‘fluffier stuff’ of life.

Television. Movies. Celebrities. Fashion.  Websites that talk about television, movies, celebrities and fashion.

It’s what I enjoy.  It’s what makes me laugh and cry and, more often than not, is a reflection of where we stand on the bigger issues in life.

And now even the Vatican is starting to espouse my theology.

In an article in Tuesday’s L’Osservatore Romano (the Vatican newspaper), they praised “The Simpsons” for the ‘realism and intelligence of its scripts’ (even though they still had to ding the series for the language used in some episodes).

While in the past the Pope has condemned television series for their content probably without ever watching them — can you say “Soap?” — now apparently bored Cardinals at the Vatican are watching at least this animated cartoon and getting its relevance to real life.

While I haven’t listened that closely to Rome in many years, I know millions of people do.  So I hope someone shows the Cardinals “Modern Family.”  I’d love for the to Vatican come out — pun intended — in support of that real family sitcom.
