Thoughts: Another reason to hate Scientology

Chef has quit South Park.
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/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 continued. "As a civil rights activist of the past 40 years, I cannot support a show that disrespects those beliefs and practices."
I think he is taking the show way too seriously. South Park makes fun of everything which is why I enjoy it so much. It will be sad not to hear Chef sing about his chocolate balls anymore, but I'm sure they can find someone to replace them as I don't think they will kill off the beloved Chef.
