Took them long enough. They're slacking if you ask me.

Yes.Take the concept of marriage, building a lifetime of ongoing love with a spouse. “Orel” writers think that’s a joke. They have Orel’s father define love for his son like this: “Love is a very beautiful, very intense feeling for a startlingly short period of time. Before long, you realize it gets in the way of the really important things in life, like just going to sleep and being left alone.”
In that episode, Orel befriends a dog so lovable that he tells the dog he “makes Lassie look like a heathen.” But when it’s discovered Orel loves the dog more than Jesus, the town’s adults surround the dog and have it killed. Orel’s father says the dog was spreading so much love he was “dangerous.”
This is comedy?
I have to say I'm disappointed. I expect much more from the PTC's take on Moral Orel than "It's not really all that funny."

"From the people who brought you Foster's Home for Imaginary Children comes Moral Orel, a work of secular propaganda with a message that religion is as bad as smoking crack!"
Dang, it's just satire of mainstream religion. I was born in a Baptist family and even I think it's funny.
I was under the impresson that the Moral Orel team were punching people's PERCEPTION of Religion in the gut.
But this PTC guys are a load of people yapping and taking no action. They're sub Jack Thompson.
Right-wing media groups suck.
This "rant" sucks even more.
Oh and BTW, I grew up in the Bible Belt. I currently live in the most conservative county of conservative Arizona. I still find Moral Orel to be hilarious.

Orel has the potential to be funny. It just usually squanders it for the exact reason they point out. It becomes more offensive than funny and offensive by itself isn't all that funny.
On rare occasions, Orel has lived up to its potential. "Waste", "Satan", "God's Blunders", and "Pleasure". Unfortunately, it just usually doesn't.
With three out of four of those episodes being from season two, it may be improving. Dino did say season one was rushed.
