Every member of Orel's family shows some form of dysfunction: father Clay abuses alcohol, abuses Orel (emotionally and physically), and fails to hide his [[TransparentCloset closet]] [[GayConservative bisexuality]]; mother Bloberta cheats on Clay, often finds herself depressed, and suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder; and both parents spoil Orel's rambunctious and disabled little brother Shapey rotten. The population of Moralton (a town placed precisely in the middle of the United States) fare little better; most of Moralton's adults lead lives as dysfunctional as Orel's family--if not more so--while putting on a show of being Good Christians and Good Neighbors.

* DeconReconSwitch: Eventually the show becomes one of these for the very concept of faith and religion, while many of the authority figures and religious leaders in Orel's life are horrendous role models, religion itself was not solely to blame for their issues. The first two and a half seasons are largely dedicated to showing how destructive religious ideology can be when taken to extremes, its dangerous effects are a result of cruel and damaged people misinterpreting it to justify their own actions, and for characters like Orel and Reverend Putty, they refuse to allow the cruelty of the world destroy their faith in God, and that faith is ultimately what [[EarnYourHappyEnding grants them some measure of personal happiness and salvation]] instead of giving in to despair and wallowing in misery and self-pity for the rest of their lives.
