Hayes to Comedy Central: Suck my chocolate salty-balls

Having lambasted every religion throughout time (except the Druze, who seem to get a free pass) Comedy Central‘s “South Park” has managed to offend even the salty Isaac Hayes. Hayes’ has quit the show, now in its tenth year, Reuters reports. (Apparently, Scientology is off limits.)

Interestingly, the AP‘s interview with Stone shows the difference between simply logging a story and advancing a story.

Reuters, like everbody on earth, quotes Hayes saying that

“There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs of others begins.”

But the AP, admirably, brings it all full circle:

Matt Stone told the AP he and co-creator Trey Parker “never heard a peep out of Isaac in any way until we did Scientology. He wants a different standard for religions other than his own, and to me, that is where intolerance and bigotry begin.”

So, if forced to choose between wire services, we’d say to Reuters, “Get thee behind me, Thetan!”
