Kinsey, who played Angela Martin on the show, spoke about her Christian faith with former co-star Rainn Wilson on the April 23 episode of his podcast. Boom soul.

Wilson, who played Dwight on the show, asked Kinsey about playing a “nervous Christian” when she grew up having a “very warm and meaningful relationship” with her faith and the church.

“Did this strike you in any way?” Asked.

Kinsey said there was a joke written about her character, and that she felt it pigeonholed Christians and didn't really reflect their views.

She cited one episode in season three, where her character was given a line that she felt was a “super judge” against Oscar, a gay character on the show.

Kinsey said she spoke to producer and director Greg Daniels about it.

“Yes, actually, there was a time or two where there would be a joke written for her that I thought was just really stereotypical, maybe one-note. I like to think of her as a whole, well-rounded person. I remember I remember there was a particular story between Angela and Oscar, where she Angela is a super judge I've never gone to Greg for a joke, but there was a joke at Oscar's expense, and I went to Greg [Daniels] And I was like, “I can't.”

Kinsey said the character invoked Jesus in the line and felt disturbed by that.

“I was like, 'I don't feel good about that.' I don't feel good about that. I don't feel like that's what Jesus is to me,” she told Daniels.
