Isaac Hayes is an ignorant douchebag

NEW YORK - Isaac Hayes has quit "South Park," where he voices Chef, saying he can no longer stomach its take on religion.

Hayes, who has played the ladies' man/school cook in the animated Comedy Central satire since 1997, said in a statement Monday that he feels a line has been crossed. "There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs of others begins," the 63-year-old soul singer and outspoken Scientologist said.

"Religious beliefs are sacred to people, and at all times should be respected and honored," he continued. "As a civil rights activist of the past 40 years, I cannot support a show that disrespects those beliefs and practices."

"South Park" co-creator Matt Stone responded sharply in an interview with The Associated Press Monday, saying, "This is 100 percent having to do with his faith of Scientology...
He has no problem -— and he's cashed plenty of checks - with our show making fun of Christians."


Stone told The AP he and co-creator Trey Parker "never heard a peep out of Isaac in any way until we did Scientology.
He wants a different standard for religions other than his own, and to me, that is where intolerance and bigotry begin." Praise Jesus

Classic religious mindset. Blasphemy is great, and profiting from blasphemy is great, just not my god. All the more laughable when your god is L. Ron Hubbard.

The argument against Hayes' stupidity is obvious here, but it reminds me of people who oppose profanity. Those vile, vile individuals.

I loathe people people who are afraid of "bad words." They're ignorant children who attempt to force their infantile worldview on everyone else. I'm reminded of them because their hypocritical nonsense mirrors Hayes' self-serving rhetoric. People who say, "don't say damn, say darn. Don't say shit, say crap."

It's nonsense. "Oh my gosh" is blasphemy the same as "Oh my god." Saying "heck" is the same thing as saying "hell." Use the baby-talk all you want, you know what you're saying. You just sound like a child while doing it.

One of the greatest comedians of all time, George Carlin, loves words and devotes much of his act to the oddities of the English language. A poster of his, "2,443 Filthy Words and Phrases," is up on my wall. But Carlin literally changed the course of American free speech when he wrote a bit called "Seven words you can't say on television."

Shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker and tits. I like those words. I like most all words. I'm not afraid of the sounds that our mouths can make, I'm not offended by their meaning, and I'm not going to use a synonym because someone wants to babble like a child their entire life.

Shit. Piss. Fuck. Cunt. Cocksucker. Motherfucker. Tits. Don't like them? Don't say them. Don't want to hear them? Turn the channel. Act like an adult or shut the fuck up and sit your goddamn dumbass down. Jesus fucking christ.

Are you offended? Here are some other words I like to say: I'm proud to be an American.
