Delightfully blasphemous

Have you seen "Moral Orel" on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim? Not for everyone, that's for sure...think "Davey and Goliath" meets "South Park."

Orel is also kind of the love child of Ned Flanders and Mrs. Cartman -- he wants to be moral and good, but he misinterprets the bible horribly. His disturbed family and town doesn't help matters -- the kids at his school, Alfred G. Diorama Elementary, say the pledge this way "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to The Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God and Jesus Christ who died on the cross for all of our sins and then rose on the third day, indivisible, with liberty and justice for most." Definitely not everybody's cup of Claymation.

Only a limited amount of episodes have been shown so far, but according to Wikipedia, "the final three episodes were held back [due] to concerns from Standards and Practices. They have since been approved and new episodes will begin airing on May 14."
