The producers of The Simpsons have contradicted the Pope's official newspaper by declaring that the animated family are not Catholic.

It comes after the L'Osservatore Romano stated that Homer and Bart were followers.

But Al Jean, executive producer of television show, said the pair only considered converting for one episode - The Father, the Son and the Holy Guest - aired in 2005.
