I guess nothing is sacred.

If I remember correctly, the originator of the series was a Christian minister. I wonder if he's still involved with the show?

The books that the show were based on were written by a minister and his son.   Sound like most were written in the 1950's,  but didn't get adapted for tv until the 1980's,  so I imagine the author had little to ever do with the tv show.
