You’re killing South Park. You Bastards!

South Park has been censored by Comedy Central AGAIN. This is the third episode of the last seven that Comedy Central has caved to pressure from religious pressure groups. Bloody Mary and Trapped in the Closet were shown once then pulled because of protests from Roman Catholic groups and the Church of Scient’logy respectively.This time the controversy is about showing an image of the Prophet Mohammed (may peace be upon him). This is despite the fact that South Park in series six had an episode depicting the Prophet as a superhero with no controversy. To highlight the idiotic position Comedy Central have dug themselves into, South Park producers added an image showing Jesus Christ defecating on George Bush and the American flag as well with no objections from Comedy Central.

They also put in a scene arguing Comedy Central’s pandering threatens the future of the series (Quicktime needed) and argue some of those clamouring for the bans as opportunists who never liked South Park.

    As long as South Park don’t take this lying down then they should be ok – their responses so far to comedy central and that ‘fruity little club’ are genius. I wonder how long they are tied to Comedy Central and if they could find another network?

    Comedy Central must operate the same policy as Slugger does re. Siobhan O’Hanlan.

  • It is all show business, Sluggiepoos. Fear, greed and the desire to dominate rule the roost. They control everything you hear and see.

    What’s with the capital “p” in prophet and why the “peace be upon him” malarkey?

    Will you be referring to Mary the mother of Jesus as “The Blessed Virgin” or the pope as “His Holiness” next? Or is this cringing respect for a different religion only for the ones who’ll cut your head off if you look crooked at them?

    It’s called irony.

    You should only make fun of people with a sense of humour: Jews, Catholics, Muslims, the DUP, Blacks, Queers, Poles and the Drumcree Orangemen. Better to leave anal retentive groups with special sensitivity needs alone, for example Scientologists.

    Fair ’nuff, Fair_Deal, it’s just that I’ve noticed the BBC and Irish Times starting all this capital “P”, “The” prophet business but haven’t seen them refer to Jesus as “The Messiah” and often wondered about the double standards.
