South Park Can't Stay Out of the News...



It seems that a priest in New Zealand, Father Denzil Meul, didn't like the "Bloody Mary episode" of South Park. It showed a bleeding Mary statue...as in... at "her time of the month". It caused a major uproar among Catholics there...

The Solicitor-General denied the blasphemy bid and now the Priest says he'll pray and consider other options --such as a civil suit.

New Zealand protestors say they will boycott the station that ran the show for one year and refused to accept the apology from the station. (source)

Granted, the image is a bit gross, but people need to lighten up and learn to laugh at themselves. I bet some of these people protesting and signing petitions were people that thought the Muslims were overreacting about the Danish cartoons...
