Cartoon sensitivity; South Park edition
South Park has no chef after Isaac Hayes quit citing the show's "inappropriate ridicule" of religion.
Following the lead of the show's creators, nearly every blogger from Left to Right calls bullshit. They note that Hayes, a Scientologist (which gets a red squiggle, indicating that it's unrecognized by Microsoft...), participated in numerous episodes mocking nearly every major world religion before the infamous Trapped in the Closet episode which mocked his own dear faith [all South Park episodes are available for free, on the web HERE. Watch Trapped in the Closet HERE].
Right Wing blogger Captain Ed writes "It seems that Chef can't take what he dishes out."
Pam Spaulding lists the episodes that did not manage to offend Hayes, including, but not limited to:
- Episode #204 - Ike's Wee Wee: A look at the Jewish practice of circumcision.
- Episode #309 - Jewbilee: A Boy Scout-like gathering for Jewish kids.
- Episode #316 - Are You There God? It's Me, Jesus: Jesus offers up the miracle of a Rod Stewart Concert and God appears in his form as a hairy duckbilled rhinocerous-faced web-footed creature.
- Episode #410 - Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?: The kids ask the Catholic priest about whether the handicapped kid who can't say confession will go to hell.
