Voice of Bart Simpson in trouble

Fox might want Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson, to write this on the chalkboard 100 times: “I will not use Bart Simpson to promote Scientology.”

Cartwright used her Bart Simpson voice and a couple of his typical phrases in a recorded message sent to members of the church of Scientology promoting an event. The recording was unauthorized.  'The Simpsons' does not, and never has, endorsed any religion, philosophy or system of beliefs any more profound than Butterfinger bars," executive producer Al Jean said, according to the Chicago Sun Times where you can hear the message .

The Simpson are a generic Protestant family on the show. I don’t know if he addresses Scientology, but if not, Mark Pinsky might have to release another edition of his book The Gospel According The Simpsons after this scandal.
