The Fear Saga Continues

You may have seen South Park this week and noticed they depicted Jesus deficating on George Bush and the American flag for their episode airing on the most holy week for most Christians, celebrating the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ (no riots yet).

You see, Trey Parker and Matt Stone wanted to take on the Danish Mohammed cartoon controversy. Comedy Central sad absolutely not, that cannot be done, you cannot touch that subject. They gave the go-ahead for Christ for Easter, though.


Well, the given reason is one of fear.

The network's decision was made over concerns for public safety, the person said.

Comedy Central said in a statement issued Thursday: "In light of recent world events, we feel we made the right decision." Its executives would not comment further.

What's even more remarkable about this hypocrisy, though, is that the creators of South Park went ahead and made the cartoon with Mohammed. Jesus was ok to depict in such a manner, however,

As is often the case with Parker and Stone, they built "South Park" around the incident. In Wednesday's episode, the character Kyle is shown trying to persuade a Fox network executive to air an uncensored "Family Guy" even though it had an image of Mohammed.

"Either it's all OK, or none of it is," Kyle said. "Do the right thing."

The executive decides to strike a blow for free speech and agrees to show it. But at the point where Mohammed is to be seen, the screen is filled with the message: "Comedy Central has refused to broadcast an image of Mohammed on their network."

Kyle's right, but it appears terrorism wins again, striking fear into the hearts of free expression. Since Christians haven't killed Comedy Central's executive board (South Park often depicts Jesus in a depreciating manner), it's ok to display those images.

I love south park and I find their depiction of Jesus as a common dude just fine.

But is funny that even our freedom of speech is no only becoming a burden but a hazard also.

I still like south park.

Christians won't kill you if you depict Jesus in a bad way.

Radical Muslims however....

All Christians have to do is to start getting violent and kill people who make fun of Jesus. Unfortunately for Christians, that isn't exactly the "Christian" thing to do.
It's a catch-22 really. The nicer you are, the more people take advantage of you.
