Isaac Hayes Quits 'South Park'

Isaac Hayes Quits 'South Park'
By ERIN CARLSON, Associated Press Writer 21 minutes ago
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."

Last November, "South Park" targeted the Church of Scientology and its celebrity followers, including actors Tom Cruise and John Travolta, in a top-rated episode called "Trapped in the Closet." In the episode, Stan, one of the show's four mischievous fourth graders, is hailed as a reluctant savior by Scientology leaders, while a cartoon Cruise locks himself in a closet and won't come out.

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."

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

looks like it.

i think that complaining about offensiveness after 10 years with south park is lame...

Very true. Scientology is very much like that.

The guy has done the show for years. To act morally superior now is a big joke.

It took him nearly 10 years to notice this ? Chef ...time to bring in a new character. Just like when Cheers replaced Shelly Long with Kirstey Alley...this show will survive and be revived ...

Thumbs up

In an interview with the Associated Press, "South Park" co-creator Matt Stone said he and partner 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."

VERY WELL SAID!

yeah that's kind of foul.....I mean you were on the show forever and now it's getting to your conscious?

Ok, what-eva...I'm thinking someone's contract may be up and wants to do a little negotiating tactics to up the ante.

This is a super funny ass thread. Bullshit!! if Hayes felt this strongly about this issue he NEVER would have began the show to begin with. The show satires more than just religion anyways.

I mean of course there is a possibility he wasn't religious when he started and has now just found his 'religion'. Which if true is a great thing but there isn't nothing more sanctimonious than a 'born again' christian....so maybe it's the same with other religions too?

People do tend to find Scientology once they hit the big bucks.

Yeah I agree.

Yet isn't being religious also being in tune with ones spirituality as well? I like to think so which brings up my point above. the show has been satring all kinds of human nature incidents and he didn't say one thing about anything else but religion. I love SOUTH PARK because it makes fun of those stupid Americans. I love that.
