Hayes goes South

The "South Park" that made Scientologist Isaac Hayes jump ship.

As already reported, Isaac Hayes quit his voiceover role on "South Park" (fans will know him as "Chef") because the show was too mean to Scientology (Hayes is a Scientologist). "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," Hayes says. Some flagrant copyright-infringer has posted the whole episode that seems to have pushed Hayes over the edge, and we're providing it below so you can judge for yourelf. As a bonus, we're linking to the December "Bloody Mary" episode of "South Park" below that, with its menstruating Madonna, was pulled (at least temporarily) from Comedy Central's line-up. Isn't the Internet great? (Warning: YouTube may require you to register to watch these, since they're for mature audiences.)
