Poll: Fr. Detectives

Yes, all these detectives are priests, rabbis, mullahs, Buddhist monks, and extra which makes it kind of fitting since both occupations share so many things in common. Both fight evil, save lives (and souls), have mysteries, try to set things right and hear confessions. And all faiths are considered in this poll no matter the title. Who is your favorite?

Discuss (or confess) your questions of detective mystery solving faith here.

    Art Carney and Bruce Solomon in "Lanigan's Rabbi" 1976 NBC

    Rabbi David Small This is the 2nd one, Bruce Solomon. Based on Harry Kemelman‘s Rabbi Small series. It is odd how Rabbi Small is the main character but the network tv show name of the secondary character in the title. That is simply just not right!
