I always thought that about shepherd, plus do you notice how often tv ministers are women (very rare). Love this list…didn’t include Father Ted though 😉
Too often, clergy in fictional media are portrayed as either demonic, judgmental hypocrites or sincere, mostly nice, but still basically useless. Hardly ever are we played as real, full human beings in our own right, complete with hopes and flaws. Here are a few that shatter such misconceptions:
Book: River, you don’t fix the Bible.
River: It’s broken. It doesn’t make sense.
Book: It’s not about making sense. It’s about believing in something, and letting that belief be real enough to change your life. It’s about faith. You don’t fix faith, River. It fixes you.
Not technically a member of the clergy, but I included him anyway because Eli’s acupuncturist doubles as his spiritual advisor.
