Bart Simpson: Scientologist

293simpsonbart012809Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson, has been a Scientologist since 1989, but now she’s making the connection explicit. She’s recorded a voice mail promoting the sect. The message (click here to listen to it) begins with her saying, “Yo, what’s happenin’ man, this is Bart Simpson. Haha. Just kidding, don’t hang up, this is Nancy Cartwright.” Responds one of the show’s executive producers: “‘The Simpsons’ does not, and never has, endorsed any religion, philosophy or system of beliefs any more profound than Butterfinger bars.” Don’t tell Ned Flanders.
