SOUTH PARK: "Oh my God! Scientologists killed Chef! You bastards!!!"





Man, I loooove South Park.

They're so friggin' smart, and so friggin' political.

And, most importantly, so friggin' funny.

In vacillating between being Bailey's and Scotch myself, or being smooth and rough in selling sedition, I marvel at the subtle and sexy ways they infiltrate society with their unique brand of simple truths.

Sometimes people don't get it, so I'm cool with all approaches that can reach all people, and really trying to flex as many as I can myself.

I caught an episode deconstructing the Mormon religion, and that was an absolutely hilarious examination of what Mormons actually believe - which is absolutely ridiculous.

But: they gave the little Mormon kid an out, as he thoughtfully suggested that no matter what they believed as an origin-story, they treated each other and their families well, and in that respect may even have an edge on non-believers.

Smart.

I've read Matt and Trey talk about how they stay out of Hollywood to avoid being sucked into sucking celebrity dictation and playing by the rules of how to treat industry "peers", allowing them the freedom to say whatever they want.

Brilliant.

I've also seen the controversial "Trapped in the Closet" episode, it's incredibly funny, and when discussing Scientology's origin-story they includes a graphically prominent rejoinder saying "this is what they actually believe!", or something like that, as they go through what Scientologists actually believe.

Now, don't give me no automatic bi-chromatic "Left-Right" style crap about how it's "just a cartoon" and "there's got to be another (equal) side", as even a cartoon can break any religion down into it's basic tenets - which are supposed to be universally understood by anybody and everybody anyway. The difference would merely be in the sales pitch as opposed to the basic set of facts, and when they're trying to make a point they point out hypocracy by telling the truth - you can cross-reference it yourself.

Besides, if they'd fictionalized the facts then it would be far less damaging to the reputation of Scientology, and the media-intelligentsia in their community would've chosen to ignore it.

I also think it's great how the attempted suppression of it may result in more people seeing it, and more people understanding what Scientologists and their numerous celebrity and other powerful followers actually believe - which is mysteriously left a mystery in the media...

For example, here:

Yep, it's pretty damned funny, and while Tom Cruise may have used Britain's nasty new Nazi'esque libel laws to keep it from being broadcast there, and a U.S. backroom strong-arming to keep it from being broadcast here, he also first auditioned Scarlett Johansson for the role of Katie Holmes at the Scientology headquarters - or possibly "TomScat". After going on a "date" as a young actress and rising star with one of the most powerful and famous movie stars in the entire world, she still chose to excuse herself early because they were all weirding her out.

G'wan Google it, I found it pretty amusing myself.

G'wan enjoy South Park too, between their chicken-scrawled amateurish anime and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, I'd say Bailey's was never so damn good for you...

'South Park'-Scientology Battle Rages On

Friday March 17 7:35 PM ET

"South Park" has declared war on Scientology. Matt Stone and Trey Parker, creators of the animated satire, are digging in against the celebrity-endorsed religion after a controversial episode mocking outspoken Scientologist Tom Cruise was yanked abruptly from the schedule Wednesday with an Internet report saying it was covert warfare by Cruise that led to its departure.

"So, Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun!" the "South Park" creators said in a statement Friday in Daily Variety. "Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies... You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail!"


The Internet blogger hollywoodinterrupted.com said Thursday that Cruise threatened to not promote "Mission: Impossible 3," a surefire summer blockbuster, if the offending episode ran. Comedy Central is owned by Viacom, as is Paramount, which is putting out the film.

But Cruise's representative, Arnold Robinson, told The Associated Press Friday that the mega-star made no such demands.

"Not true," Robinson said. "I can tell you that he never said that."

A call by The Associated Press to a Paramount representative was not returned Friday.

The episode in question, "Trapped in the Closet," which first aired last November, shows Scientology leaders hailing Stan, one of the show's four devilish fourth-graders, as a savior. A cartoon Cruise locks himself in a closet and won't come out. An animated John Travolta, another famous Scientologist, enters the closet to try to get him out.

The battle began in earnest earlier this week when Isaac Hayes, another celebrity Scientologist and longtime show member voicing the ladies' man Chef quit the show, saying he could no longer tolerate its religious "intolerance and bigotry."

Stone and Parker didn't buy that either.

On Monday, Stone told The Associated Press, "This is 100 percent having to do with his faith in Scientology...He has no problem and he's cashed plenty of checks with our show making fun of Christians."


A Comedy Central spokesman said Friday that the network pulled the controversial episode to make room for two shows featuring Hayes.

"In light of the events of earlier this week, we wanted to give Chef an appropriate tribute by airing two episodes he is most known for," the spokesman said.

Occasionally laser surgery will be used in order to deal with
the problem. Another available treatment option that can be done at home without a prescription
is a topical ointment. Others think tanning and sunning themselves
will dry up their skin and pimples to eliminate their acne.
