Why would they edit it out??

My hubby and I were watching the show south park was on. Apparently it was a rerun, cause my dh had seen it, however, it was new to me.


Well, the show was about how "Family Guy" was going to air an image of Muslim's prophet Muhammod. Ok, South Park offends everyone at some point. It gets to the end of the show where they were going to show the cartoon image and the screen blacked out "comedy central refuses to show this portion of the show" or some such like that. I thought it was part of the show, but my Dh said that no, Comedy Central did that not the creators (the non-tv version shows it)!


So, I asked him why it was ok in comedy centrals view to show a drunk/stoned/partying Jesus, talking & walking poo, and SEVERAL other offensive things, but not this?


(oh, and I get that the image of Muhammad is against the religion, but that is the point of their show, to offend)

  • Where in the bible does it say they ever ate poo? I think you are sadly mistaken.

  • He was speaking hypotetically. Did you read the whole story and find out what was going ? I think you are getting confused.
