As I think a little bit more about the whole South Park controversy that's brewing, I have two additional thoughts. First, I think Comedy Central should just get rid of the show right now. Granted, I never really watched it all that often, but the more I think about them censoring Mohammed (and not re-airing the Scientology episode), but not having a problem with Jesus crapping on a flag, the more it pisses me off. Granted, I'm not really a follower of Christianity anymore, but I also think its damned unfair to completely destroy one group of people, as the South Park writers have done to Christianity for years, and then somehow claim that another group is protected. Either allow all of it, or do none of it.
I have to wonder if this isn't what Parker and Stone intended all along. When you watch the episode, they use Family Guy as an allegory for South Park. And they say that if you censor that image, then it will destroy the show, and that eventually it will be canceled. I wonder if that's their way of saying that they will cancel it themselves if Comedy Central were to do what they did. I wouldn't be surprised if South Park ended with this season.
