i find this to be unfortunitly true...

Isaac Hayes has quit "South Park," where he voices Chef, saying he can no longer stomach its take on religion. Hayes, who has played the ladies' man and school cook in the animated Comedy Central satire since 1997, said in a statement Monday that he feels a line has been crossed. "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," the 63-year-old soul singer and outspoken Scientologist said. "Religious beliefs are sacred to people, and at all times should be respected and honored," he added. "As a civil rights activist of the past 40 years, I cannot support a show that disrespects those beliefs and practices." "South Park" co-creator Matt Stone responded sharply in an interview with The Associated Press, saying, "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."

Ok 9 years of work, 9 years of pay checks, and he just now has had it with the south park guys bashing on some thing because it was his Religion? (or so called religion, i was on there mailing list once and i will say this it scared the hell out of me some of the things they did..) Sigh......

Nine years of slamming everyone from Satan to Christ to Mohammed to Yahweh, and Ike can't find a line he won't cross until Elron takes a hit.

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!!!" --[signed, "Trey Parker and Matt Stone, servants of the dark lord Xenu"]

Seriously. That was their public statement. I love it.
