Hmm...No Riots in New Zealand

The Catholic Church in New Zealand made a request to the people - don't watch the "Bloody Mary" episode of South Park when it aired. Sadly for the church, the show got more than six times its normal audience. Nicely done.

I have to say, if you're a weirdy religious group and you are upset that someone is mocking your weirdy religious beliefs, then you might want to take protest lessons from the Catholics in N.Z. There was no rioting, not one death, and no burnt American embassy. Just a prayer protest where some folks said the rosary and some prayers to, you know, help the creators realize how mean they are. Oh, and in a nice twist, the The Federation of Islamic Associations in N.Z. also protested. Good job, people.

See, even if you are a weirdy religious group, you don't have to be a crazy group. Muslims around the world should watch this episode and realize that they have it pretty fucking good around the world as far as being picked on because of their asinine beliefs.

I am so glad for shows like South Park and the popularity of it shows that there are a lot more skeptics and other "heathens" out there besides ourselves. :-)

I think these muslim groups (and any other groups) that go out and violently protest with rioting and destoying actually LIKE this violence crap. It makes their dull lives interesting or something. Fortunately it's not ALL muslims protesting with violence, or else we would REALLY have a problem.

Exactly. It's nice to see that even if people aren't hard-core atheists or skeptics (or even heathens!), they can at least laugh at the silliness of it all.

Thanks for your comment! I'm glad you're reading - makes me a happy heathen ;)
