Double Standard from South Park’s Isaac Hayes

Isaac Hayes quit the show after South Park took aim at Scientology.  “Religious beliefs are sacred to people, and at all times should be respected and honored.  As a civil rights activist for the past 40 years, I cannot support a show that disrespects those beliefs and practices.  There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs begin.”

Matt Stone, the co-creator of South Park, said, “This is 100 percent having to do with his faith of Scientology.  He has no problem – and he’s cashed plenty of checks – with our show making fun of Christians. … He wants a different standard for religions other than his own, and to me, that is where intolerance and bigotry begin.”
