Suck on my Chocolate Salty Balls

Isaac Hayes, best known as the voice of Chef on South Park, has quit the show. In his own words, "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 ...(R)eligious beliefs are sacred to people, and at all times should be respected and honored...(A)s a civil rights activist of the past 40 years, I cannot support a show that disrespects those beliefs and practices."

I could not disagree more. When you believe something that is ludricrous, it's the job of your friends to say so. There is absolutely no grounds for respecting dumbass beliefs, not to mention that questioning and making fun of stupid shit is how we move past it.

Matt Stone brought some clarity to the situation: "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."

Truth hurts, eh Isaac? Sucks to be called out for what you really mean by someone with a brain. I can't wait for the episode where Chef dies a horrible, embarrassing death next season. Please please please let Jesus kill him on his talk show.

How much do you want to bet Isaac does't give any of his paycheques back in "protest"?

I suspect that his decision to leave now, several months after the episode was first aired smells funny.

If it really was a matter of his religious sensibilities being injured, he would have left a lot sooner.

I suspect that his decision to leave the show now is most likely as a result of pressure from the church... "Leave that SP show or we'll excommunicate your ass" or something to that affect.
