My G*d! Is nothing sacred?
The season finale of South Park, titled Bloody Mary involved a statue of the Virgin Mary bleeding out its ass. Pope Benedict XVI then pays a visit in order to determine the miraculous nature of the bleeding. After investigating, Pope Ratzinger determines that the statue is actually bleeding from its vagina, and declares: “A chick bleeding out her vagina is no miracle. Chicks bleed out their vaginas all the time.”
This of course created some indignation amongst more conservative Catholics. The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, as they are wont to do, condemned the episode, claiming that it “defiled the Virgin Mary.” You may recall that the Catholic League president is one William Donohue who once claimed that “Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular … Hollywood likes anal sex.” So, whacknuts, right? Ignore the stupid fucks, correct?
Maybe not though. See Comedy Central was supposed to re-air the episode as part of a mini-marathon of the show’s most recent seven new episodes. However, it seems like they may have yanked it whilst under pressure from the loonie Catholic dudes. Yikes. Very bad precedent. So much for Hollywood being controlled by Jews though – Matt Stone, one of the creators of South Park, is Jewish and still they caved. Feh. So not cool.
