Isaac Hayes pulls a Bitch move!
It seems the man who brought us "Shaft..Damn Right" And such cartoon classic songs as, "Stinky Bitches" has quit South Park.
Says Hayes:"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"
And he goes on the exaplain that, "Religious beliefs are sacred to people, and at all times should be respected and honored. As a civil rights activist of the past 40 years, I cannot support a show that disrespects those beliefs and practices."
But I smell a rat! And so does co creator Matt Stone. See, Hayes is a Scientologist. Notably, these yahoos try to strike down anything that reveals them in an ill favored light. And they do this by outing it, then putting it down. Hayes went through shows lampooning catholicism, islam, the morman faith, and much more. Recently, though, they did an episode (a very funny one) about scientology. Hayes packed it in shortly after. Says Stone of the decision, "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. In ten years and over 150 episodes of 'South Park,' Isaac never had a problem with the show making fun of Christians, Muslim, Mormons or Jews. He got a sudden case of religious sensitivity when it was his religion featured on the show."
I see it that way, too. This guy can go on air and say what he wants about religious beliefs, and lump himself in with everyone else who is pissed at the show, but he had NO problems with ANY other show. Come clean, and even though I think it's a crock of shit, I will respect your decision to go with your religion. Lump it in with everything else they do, and it shows you for a liar, hypocrite, and idiot.
