Billy’s father isn’t fascinated about there being demonology within the recreation and it being towards the lessons in their southern Baptist church so long as “no one’s touchin’ nothin’” and “everyone’s were given their trousers up.” He’s additionally satisfied that Billy has pals and isn’t “consuming dust and crabgrass anymore.” He then proceeds to hit on Mary. Conventional cool animated film from Hollywood of the southern, most commonly conservative and Christian state of Texas the place the display occurs. Texans will have to all be naive, unintelligent, hypocritical “rednecks,” in fact.
Mary in any case has Pastor Jeff (Matt Pastime) from the circle of relatives’s church over to the home to speak about the problem. He tells them:
At a up to date Younger Baptist Leaders Convention, I attended a seminar on satanic recreational actions. And the necessary lesson is, quite than have a figure or authority determine take the offending recreation away, allow God dispose of it, root and stem… Sheldon wishes to start out attending Sunday faculty. If he likes books with demons and devils, I have were given one in an effort to blow his thoughts.
Sheldon hates the Sunday faculty concept and tells the pastor that he doesn’t consider in God. Sooner or later, despite the fact that, he strangely begins to learn the Bible to review for Sunday faculty.
Sheldon’s oldsters are inspired through his examine of the Bible and Mary tells her husband that she’s thankful now for the Dungeons & Dragons recreation as it helped lead Sheldon to God. However Mary’s pleasure quickly turns to depression while Sheldon broadcasts that he’s making plans to review different religions as smartly, together with voodoo.
Sheldon turns to his family member Tam first to invite approximately his faith, Catholicism, and finally ends up getting very uneducated solutions. There’s additionally an uncongenial slam at the Catholic church. As a result of, in fact:

Sheldon: Now not me, I shouldn’t have any sins.
Tam: Then you’ve the sin of satisfaction.

Ira: Then I strongly recommend you to stick Baptist. Perhaps even put on a move.
Mary after all tells Sheldon that it’s “essential to understand that there’s most effective one real God.” While Sheldon tells her, “That is referred to as monotheism,” and gives her a guide approximately it, Mary tells him, “That is k. I’ve The E-book approximately it.”
Sheldon asks, “Might you be indignant with me if I do not pick out your faith?” Mary tells him, “I may just by no means be indignant with you. You be a seeker of your personal fact…And if the reality seems to be Devil, I will be able to do struggle with him.”
Sheldon then falls asleep on his analysis books and starts to have a dream approximately faith the place he discovers that the “10” Commandments are actually binary code:
Male voice: Welcome, Sheldon.
Feminine voice: We’ve got been looking ahead to you.
Sheldon: Are you the Ten Commandments?

Sheldon then pronounces in Sunday faculty that he’s beginning his personal faith referred to as “Mathology,” in response to a “common binary device,” and that he’s there to “convert everyone.” As Pastor Jeff hurries him out of the room to have a chat together with his mom, Sheldon says at the method out, “The one sin in Mathology is being dull.”
Does that imply that the writers of this display are sinners on the earth of Mathology through scripting this twisted, defamatory script on faith, then?
