So as you've probably heard by now, Isaac Hayes (the voice of Chef) has decided to leave South Park, because he got sick of how they made fun of religion... or so he claimed. Matt Stone then responded by saying:
Comedy Central was going to re-air the show this last week, but decided not to at the last moment, and replaced it with two episodes featuring Chef that were to act as a tribute to him. Some are wondering whether it was because of pressure from Tom Cruise (also a Scientologist):
To which Stone and Park responded with:
If you want to decide for yourself, you can watch the episode in question on You Tube.
Probably the funniest part about that South Park episode is that during the show when they're talking about what Scientologists believe, they put the words "This is What Scientologists Actually Believe" on the screen... and they weren't lying. As it turns out, my Dad had a brief stint with Scientology in the 80's, which I was thankfully shielded from. If you've never read about Scientology at all, and have no idea what they actually believe, then this Wikipedia article is a good starting place. Also of interest is this article on Xenu, which you get to find out about if you pay enough money. Among other things, they believe that alien bodies were blown up by atom bombs inside volcanoes. Then their souls were captured by evil aliens and put inside movie theaters where they were brainwashed, and now inhabit all of us. Seriously!
Maybe that's why so many actors and actresses seem to fall for Scientology. Hmmm... I wonder if that's why so many are really liberal and practice in moonbattery on the side.
