South Park gets censored, freedom of speech takes a hit

Nothing short of absurd, Comedy Central censored a South Park episode over fear of offending religion.

South Park rips on every religion, and no religion should get a free pass from criticism. I fear radical Christian groups attempting to creep on our separation of church and state daily.

Let's be realistic, we should separate divinity from human interpretations of it.

Here's the group's website that made the threat, it has apparently been taken down.

JUST TO BE CRYSTAL CLEAR. According to the LA Times, this is what Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee posted on one of his Twitter accounts: "May Allah kill Matt Stone and Trey Parker and burn them in Hell for all eternity. They insult our prophets Muhammad, Jesus, and Moses."


Jon Stewart weighs in and rips on every religion.
