:lol: I saw one in which Homer was being swept away by a tornado, and said words to the effect of "if you don't help me now god, what am I paying you for every sunday?"

Q for theists; how can there be freewill and miracles? And, how can prayer exist in an environment as regimented as "gods plan"?

I kind of doubt they're censored much anymore. Simpsons haven't really been the show at the front of the line pushing those boundaries in a long time. Family Guy is on fox, too, and pushes the line much further. FX, also owned by fox, is going as hard or harder than other channels these days and most of their shows outside of Archer are live action, not animated.

When I searched "fox censors Simpsons" I did find a few examples (though one example was that Itchy couldn't gut Scratchy and use his intestines as a noose--something I think I have seen Itchy do), but mostly it appears that the Simpsons has a fairly free hand. I suspect some of this has to do with the show being hugely popular for years and having basically been the foundation early fox survived on.

I think my favorite episode was when Homer hid in a hall closet and was sucked up by a mysterious vortex behind the the wall into the third dimension.  The preacher came by to console the family and told them Homer had gone to a better place.  He walked around on a mesh representing space time for a while and then fell through a depression in the mesh that I guess was a bending of space time into a three dimension world, which he didn't like at all, until he walked by a bakery that sold donuts.
