Homer Simpson calls himself the new Messiah in 'The Simpsons' new controversial episode 'Watch the Greatest Story Ever D'ohed,' which will see the cartoon legend try and bring religions together
Homer Simpson calls himself the new Messiah in an upcoming controversial 'The Simpsons' episode.
In the new show - called 'Watch the Greatest Story Ever D'ohed' - the cartoon legend thinks as the special one he can bring Christians, Muslims and Jews together after a trip to Israel.
According to the Daily Star newspaper, Homer says: "I have come to gather you into a new faith. From now on you shall be called Chris-mu-jews. Because when you get down to it aren't all religions the same?"
In the episode, which will also feature 'Borat' star Sacha Baron Cohen, the beer-drinking character will see disciples of God in the forms of a cucumber, a carrot and a tomato - and fall asleep in the Holy Sepulchre.
Other words of Simpson wisdom from the episode include Homer saying: "Celebrate your commonality - some of us don't eat Pork, some of us don't eat shellfish, but all of us love chicken."
Recently 'South Park' came under fire for a controversial episode featuring the prophet Muhammad, and were allegedly the target of a car bomb in New York's Times Square as a result.
'The Simpsons' offered their support to the foul-mouthed show by mentioning them in their opening sequence - with Bart writing on the blackboard: "South Park - we'd stand beside you if we weren't so scared."
