I just read this article and one thing struck me: in the episode where Homer, Ned, Grandpa & Apu go to bring Canadian medicine into the USA, it is NED who tells Apu 'why not call Hawkman'
But maybe Lovejoy said this as well some time?
I agree. Some of the characters are better known by their titles, not than their full names (i.e. most people say Mr Burns, Miss Hoover, Principal Skinner, Krusty the Clown, Superintendent Chalmers, Groundskeeper Willie, and Comic Book Guy).
In the secton "Tolerance", I was surprised to see that there was no mention of the reverend's opinion of homosexuality?
It's been a long time since I saw it, but I believe in There's Something About Marrying, Rev. Lovejoy has a role in his opposition to same-sex marriage?
Anyone wanna clarify this?

If I remember correctly, I think Lovejoy said that, though he didn't hold anything personal against homosexuals, he couldn't marry them due to his religious beliefs. Of course, I could be wrong, I haven't seen the episode in a while. -- Lord Crayak (talk) 00:50, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Reverend Lovejoy has been redirected to this article since 2004 and a search of the google news archive or google books gives results only relating to the Simpsons character. I think it's pretty clear that the Simpsons character is the primary topic of "Reverend Lovejoy". Jenks24 (talk) 08:14, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
Support. Clearly the primary topic, clearly the most common name. And as a fictional character, we don't need to consider WP:NCPEOPLE. PowersT 13:31, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
