tom cruise has leveraged comedy central into submission… “persuading” them not to re-broadcast south park’s infamous scientology episode.
south park creators trey parker and matt stone issued a statement saying, “So, Scientology, you may have won this battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun!
“Temporarily anozinizing our episode will not stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies.
“Curses and drat! You have obstructed us now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu.”
the statement is signed “Trey Parker and Matt Stone, servants to the dark lord Xenu.
this comes on the heels of isaac “chef” hayes’ departure from the show in protest of south park’s religious bigotry… which didn’t seem to bother him when fundamentalist christians, catholics, mormons, jews, muslims, aliens, republicans, liberals, whores, gays, mel gibson, lesbians, the japanese, barbara streisand, black people, rich people, the handicapped, dwarves, basketball players, plastic surgery, anal probes, john edward, china and about a thousand others were targeted for satire… yes, you guessed it, he’s a scientologist.
i’ll take up a bit of the slack and re-broadcast the episode here. it’s just too good, too honest and too perfect to sit on a shelf collecting dust.
