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.”
Very interesting, huh!?!
