Scientologists ganged up on "South Park"

March 22 2006

Scandalous humor acclaimed animated series "South Park" had long since become the object of disapproving comments notebooks American guardians of morality. At the same time cunning boys - heroes of the cartoon - has become a cult for most shtatovskih adolescents and for their older compatriots.

Advertisement odious cartoon Matt Stone (Matt Stone) and Trey Parker (Trey Parker) has never been any political correctness or tolerance. Under their mock attack more than once caught the stars of show business, politics, high ranking religious figures. Perhaps such publicity they were not too happy, but can not be denied that, as a slightly crumpled in a series of cartoons, celebrities, and received additional "public relations". On and calmed down. But American Scientologists, armed with a banner with the image of Tom Cruise, one of its adherents have gone further.

The stumbling block was the scene of the latest series of cartoon, where the handsome Cruz, locked in the closet with the founder of Scientology Ron Hubbard, discusses with his acting ability. Ex-wife of Tom Nicole Kidman and other famous Scientologist John Travolta at this time unsuccessfully trying to lure him out of the closet.

It's funny, but overall, nothing special. However, Cruise has threatened that he would not participate in a promotional campaign for the blockbuster "Mission Impossible 3" is now removed if the cartoon, which makes fun of his commitment to Scientology, will be released. Such attacks have become possible because the film company Paramount, which removed the "Mission", and the issuing of "South Park" Comedy Central one boss - the corporation Viacom.

Despite the fact that the spokesman for Cruise denied this information, stating that the actor never anything like it did not say a series of "South Park" titled Trapped in the Closet, in which Stone and Parker "encroached on the sacred", hosts the show yet removed from the TV. Now listing the third "Mission" will not be disrupted, and fellow "super agent Ethan Hunt," according to the doctrine received its share of promotion.

Fuel to the fire poured and the famous soul singer Isaac Hayes (Isaac Hayes), who for ten years, the voice of Chef, the cheerful chef school cafeteria. Voiced singer of the reason for his departure from the cartoon amounted to the fact that he is deeply abhorrent travesty of religion who allow themselves crazy, Stone and Parker. Praiseworthy, no doubt. However, it should be noted that the aggravation of the struggle for freedom of religion, awoke in Hayes (also known Scientologist) after the first series, when Christ and Santa Claus fought a duel with the use of techniques from the arsenal of martial arts, but when satire touched it the doctrine of Hubbard.

As a result, in the right way made themselves Matt Stone with Trey Parker. Animators have released a public appeal in connection with the abolition of telepokaza recent series: "Scientology, you may win this battle, but the eternal war for the planet Earth has just begun. Your pathetic attempts to save the human race is doomed to failure! "

Sure, naming "the saviors of mankind" flattered by the apologists of the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard.
