Global Scam

YouTube - South Park - Scientology Episode

If you're wondering what all the recent South Park hubbub is about, watch the episode that made Isaac Hayes quit. And consider what Matt Stone, one of the show's creators, said about Hayes's departure:
This has nothing to do with intolerance and bigotry and everything to do with the fact that Isaac Hayes is a Scientologist and that we recently featured Scientology in an episode of 'South Park.' In ten years and over 150 episodes of 'South Park,' Isaac never had a problem with the show making fun of Christians, Muslims, Mormons and Jews. He got a sudden case of religious sensitivity when it was his religion featured on the show.
What's really funny is that the best line of the show isn't even about Scientology--it's when Stan shouts down to his parents, "Tom Cruise won't come out of the closet!"
