Damn you Tom Cruise, and all you other crazy scientologists

First Isaac Hayes requests to be released from his contract due to what he feels is religious bigotry by South Park. Odd that he never had a problem with their mocking of everything from Islam to Christianity, but when they decided to mock the pseudo religion of scientology, that did it for Isaac Hayes. It's probably just a coincidence that he is a practicing scientologist nutball.

Then this week I was getting ready to watch a rerun of the episode "Trapped in the Closet", the one that makes fun of scientology, when they instead decided to show the "Chocolate Salty Balls" episode. I thought at first it might be a little tribute to Chef, Hayes' character, as he is now going to leave the show. Turns out it was not a tribute but that Tom Cruise got the episode pulled. It seems that Cruise threatened to not promote Mission Impossible 3 if the episode aired again. MI3 is a product of Viacom who owns Comedy Central.

Hopefully the episode will eventually be on DVD or be aired again, it is a great episode and shows what raving lunatics scientologists really are. Not that you needed a South Park episode to understand that. The most histerical part of the whole ordeal was the letter the statement that Matt Stone and Trey Parker released to Daily Variety, it follows:
"So, Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun! Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!" It was signed, "Trey Parker and Matt Stone, servants of the dark lord Xenu."

Apparently Isaac Hayes isn't the one who has a problem with making fun of Scientology, but fellow Scientologist Christina "Kumi" Kimball. According to it was this luney Scientologist who wrote the "I quit" letter to "South Park", not the luney Scientologisy who actually works on the show. The report added that "Hayes loves 'South Park' and needs it for income. He has a new wife and a baby on the way." I don't know if this is possible, Scientologists have thus far proven they have no sense of humor.
