*** Even worse is a FreezeFrameBonus with the newspaper headlines - [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil Creepler]] is initially described as a "[[UnusualEuphemism serial adulterer]]" by the papers, and the third one focuses primarily on how [[StepfordSuburbia uncomfortable the town is about the prospect of addressing the issue]], and the 6th headline is "Husbands Finally Fed Up With Rapes!"

* In the episode "Grounded", as a result of having his friends do a bloodletting, Orel is banned from going to church for a month. Afraid of damnation because he is not going to church, Orel slowly begins to go insane. By the end of the first week, Orel has turned his bedroom into a RoomFullOfCrazy, drawing a church on the wall, along with numerous [[Literature/TheBible Bible]] verses. In week two, he constructs a cardboard church whilst muttering [[MadnessMantra "Church church churchy church"]], which is then taken away by Clay, causing Orel's sanity to degrade further. On the second Sunday, Orel finally has a mental breakdown, wearing the remains of the cardboard church, and believing that he IS a church. When Doughy points out that there's no cross on the cardboard steeple, Orel steals a cross from a store sign on the roof, and is immediately struck by a bolt of lightning (as it was very cloudy). After becoming convinced that God is trying to kill him because He misses him, Orel becomes suicidal, trying to electrocute himself and having near death experiences. What follows in his third NDE is easily some of the darkest and most disturbing imagery ever aired on Adult Swim (even within the context of the show's [[CerebusSyndrome third season]]). Orel sees himself praying (which consists of the backmasked phrase "I am a church", before seeing a MindScrew montage relating to himself and church. It's also filled with some beautiful [[RuleOfSymbolism symbolism]] that ties in very neatly to Orel's gnostic revelation. The episode concludes by him promising to his dad that he'll never attempt suicide again, which then leads to the events of the horrific ''Nature'' two-part episode.

* Bloberta mutilating herself in "Numb" to seduce a doctor with a gore fetish. There's no visible gore, but you ''hear it''. She puts power tools in her vagina and leaves them running. For entire days.

Don't let the title fool you...there's definitely disturbing stuff in ''Moral Orel''. Lots of disturbing stuff. Let's just put it this way: after "Nature", Adult Swim [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor asked Dino to make Season 3 as dark as possible]] -- [[UpToEleven darker than anything Adult Swim had ever aired before]]...

* The shear amount of TruthInTelevision. How many people are out there that are just like Clay, or any of the other messed up religious stereotypes in Moralton? Especially with "Nature", for those of us that have been in similar situations (minus the gunshot) and know the sheer torture Orel is going through even before it goes FromBadToWorse. And Mrs. Censordoll? Say hello to the Westboro Baptist Church.

** Add some FridgeHorror to that: Orel's "I am a church" vision was an epiphany that Faith is a personal relationship between the self and God, and his father ''beat that enlightenment out of his son's memory out of pure spite.''

*** It seemed less spiteful and more like a side-effect of living in StepfordSuburbia, as the main reason Clay even cared was because Orel was spouting his disbelief in FluffyCloudHeaven in front of other members of the community.

* Clay's visions in "Nesting" are unsettling, to say the least. And a bit ''too'' Freudian.
