Comedy Central Allows Mockery of Christianity on South Park but Bleeps the Name 'Prophet Muhammad' from a Recent Episode

WASHINGTON, (christiansunite.com) -- Network "censors" South Park after radical Islamic group makes threats about the portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad.

It is bigotry and discrimination at its worst to protect one faith tradition, Islam, and allow others to be mocked and ridiculed.

South Park has a long history of mocking Christianity and its values which Comedy Central has repeatedly aired.

By bowing to the pressure of radical Islamic extremists, Comedy Central shows their utter contempt for free speech, their cowardice and their distain for religious tolerance and equality.

Sadly, this double standard by Comedy Central toward Christianity, reflects the prevailing attitude in pop culture toward the Christian faith and their values.

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states,

"It is bigotry and discrimination at its worst to protect one faith tradition, Islam, and allow Christianity and others to be mocked and ridiculed.

"South Park has a long history of mocking Christianity and its values which Comedy Central has repeatedly aired. Yet, they bowed to pressure from Islamic extremists and bleeped the name the 'Prophet Muhammad' out of one of their recent episodes. This is an absolute disgrace.

"Let's be clear. By caving in to pressure from extremists, Comedy Central has shown they are cowards, have no respect for free speech or protecting artistic freedom in the shows they air.

"This network is not progressive, edgy or forward thinking. Rather, they are religious bigots who sacrifice free speech when facing a bully. Comedy Central shame on you.

"Sadly, this reflects a growing trend in pop culture where it is 'open season' and a double standard regarding Christianity and its values. This may be reflected in the National Endowment for the Arts funding a picture of Jesus in a vat of urine or HBO airing an episode of Larry David urinating on a picture of Jesus.

"In America, all faith traditions should be treated with equality."
