Matt Groening was asked by The New York Times whether he believed in
God and what he considers the most comical story in the Bible:
"I was very disturbed when Jesus found a demon in a
guy, and he put the demon in a herd of pigs, then sent them off a cliff.
What did the pigs do? I could never figure that out. It just seemed
very un-Christian. Technically, I'm an agnostic, but I definitely
believe in hell -- especially after watching the fall TV schedule."

The Onion: Is there a God?
Matt Groening: "[Laughs.] Hold on, I have to think
about this. [Long pause.] If there is a God, all evidence shows that
He hates me."
