* Parodied (what else?) in ''TheSimpsons'' episode "Bart's Girlfriend": Bart first sees Jessica when she steps to the church podium to do a Bible reading and she is immediately surrounded by a HolyBacklight. Bart exclaims "There IS a God!"... then we cut to outside to see that ''a lighthouse'' is shining its light directly at the church window.

This gives the scene a church-like feel, and the sunshine is quite bright compared to Charles' dark silhouette, so it gives the impression that he's bathed in holy light.
