Well, as usual, King of the Hill is a reflection of life more akin to a documentary than an animated sitcom. Last night's episode had Hank & Peggy Hill lose "their seats" at church, and they got so upset they went church shopping. As a minister, I can tell you that's not as farfetched as it sounds, or as it should be. We humans can be very petty sometimes.
That, however, is not the good part. I've got a blog post still marinating about the concept of "trading up" to the latest "flash-bang" church fad, but first I want to share Hank's first impression of the megachurch:
Peggy: Maybe, we should try the new megachurch.
Hank: I don't wanna change churches. Besides, that place is too big. What's it got–5,000 some-odd members?
Peggy: Yes! And it pampers all of them. They've got their very own coffee shop, florist, mini-mart, bank, and a dry cleaner that accepts all competitors' coupons.
Hank: If I wanted to go that route, I could just walk around the mall and think about Jesus.
Good observation, Hank.
