Religious Stevens
Sun Aug 22, 2010 09:36

Gonna ruffle some feathers here with a controversial statement. George and Sapphire evidently were not too religious. Proof of that is the Kingfish would steal, lie, covet, deceive and even hurt you if it meant he could get something out of the deal. Not the type of person who had strong moral and religious beliefs. Sapphire was more stable but even she did not attend church. Proof of this is in one of the episodes called "The Second Honeymoon", Kingfish and Sapphire were visited unexpectantly by their Pastor who married then back in Marietta, Georgia 25 years ago. Apparently the Reverend relocated to New York also. During the visit, Sapphire did not even recognize her own Minister who married her and George. If she had attended the Reverend's church in New York, it is inconceivable that she would not recognize her own Pastor. He had to tell her who he was. The Reverend reminded them that they had not been to the church in a very long time and George made up a bunch of excuses and lies before admitting they had not. George even lied to the Reverend about the wedding ring. How can anyone justify lying to a Man of God? Amos obviously attended the church regularly because the Reverend
was very close to him and Amos went to him for help in getting the Steven's marital problems resolved. He did not tell Amos he had not seen him in church in a long time because Amos and his family were very religious and were regular parishioners. Just look at the Christmas Show episode and you will see Amos and Ruby and Arbadella were very devout Christians.

          I agree that George may not have been the epitomy of honesty and he could work the con better than anyone who ever graced the films of fiction land. As for his religious beliefs, that was never... more

            Yes, I agree that George may not have been a church going man if you go by the fact he was not seen in church during the run of the show. I also agree that if I had listened carefully I would have... more
