Comedy Central: Timid Greedy Cowards
Personally, I think that everybody needs to chill out. Though your religion or creed may mean a lot to you, as mine does to me, there is no reason to kill someone because you have been "offended." Other cultures do not feel that this is the case, but here in the United States a vast majority of citizens will not kill you if you offend them. That being said, liberty and freedom are worth dying for. Barry Goldwater once said "Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. ... Moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue." Comedy Central has moderated to appease fundamentalist Islam as many have before it, and many undoubtedly will in the future. South Park, a show I enjoy, has been downright sickeningly rude to Catholics. At one point I stopped watching because I became very upset with a portrayal of Jesus Christ. Later, I realized that there is absolutely no reason to become angry or upset. Matt and Trey do not hate Catholics. They don't hate most of their unfortunate subjects that are targeted by South Park. It's pushing the envelope that makes the show so great, and if it draws so much ire you cannot watch it, then don't. The only thing the latest episode proves is that Comedy Central allows bashing Catholics and Christians that will not murder or sue when offended, and the executives at this corporation are timid cowards that fear more for their own greedy lives than living in freedom.

I dunno - sounds like a corporation trying to protect its brand to me. That's just good capitalism, ain't it?
