I hold all fascists in contempt, regardless of whether there is a religious component to their belief system. OTOH, I don't think this is a shining moment for Southpark. I tried to watch some of that episode and lost interest. I thought it was funny when the Barbara Streisand robot dinosaur thingy sang a duet with Neil Diamond (sort of), but the basic idea here seems to be shocking people by depicting religious leaders in a humiliatingly mundane or even ridiculous way with no other significant commentary. Seems quite low-brow to me, "dum, dum, dum, dum, dum." At least, I think it's a great distance from the episode on Joseph Smith, which was "smart, smart, smart, smart, smart". I defend their right to be pointless and stupid, I guess.

I liked the episode and trust the gods are secure enough in themselves that they can laugh or turn the channel. My spouse also dislikes (South Park) it as she finds it pointless.
Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee and others (note his remarks about a country he is residing in) will use even cartoons in order to stir themselves up. Now his web site is shut down...I wonder if he is on the "watch list".
Parker & Stone i think knew they would stir up the hornets...i applaud them.

How could not the one that created him (in his own image) not find this somewhat funny.

Jesus has been dragged through the mud for 2,000 years. It won't hurt the Prophet to get a little face-time.
