South Park Guys Take a Few Risks
After clearing being targeted after last week's episode, Parker and Stone continued their 200 episode celebration with a focus on Mohammed and the controversy around using his image. This CNN story covers it well. Interestingly, it seems that they may have manged to stir up a conversation among Muslims. And that would be good. As some have noted, South Park has targeted pretty much every religion, so this is not a matter of hating Islam. After all, these guys started out depicting a brutal fight between Jesus and Santa. They depicted Moses as a Tron-like glowing figure. Anyhow, it will be interesting to see where this goes from here.
