South Park’s “Bloody Mary” banned?

The Catholic Church got very unhappy about the “Bloody Mary” South Park episode I blogged about a few weeks ago, and there were many fears that Comedy Central would shelve the episode from future airings.

Now, think about the fact that Scientologist laywers didn’t do a peep when South Park heavily chastisized their religion 2 months ago in another episode. In my opinion, the Scientologist episode had more impact because it clearly puts their faith in a very difficult position in front of the public eye (the episode nailed them nicely). And yet, they didn’t sue (as they usually do).

And here we are now, having the Christians getting pissed off over free speech and expression. Booooo!

Thankfully, Comedy Central said that it won’t shelve the episode permanently and won’t listen to external pressure.
