South Park And Me
Hey folks, Jesus Christ here. Believe it or not, I'm waist deep in planning a Katrina Relief Service Project for next week, so posts will probably be slim to none for a while. That's right, Jesus goes on service project trips. They won't know it's Me though. They will think I'm just some guy helping out.
Regarding South Park, I mostly hate it. Sure, there's social commentary in it so that somewhow must make it relevant, but for every one smart comment on contemeporary society, there's three kids learning that the word "Bitch" is comedy gold. Sometimes the show is funny, but mostly I don't laugh too much at it. And for the record, I would be able to kill Santa Claus in a fight INSTANTLY, no contest. I would step into the ring and simply make his heart explode, done.
That being said, here's an interesting episode of South Park! The below "You Tube" link is to the episode intitled "Trapped In The Closet" which is the episode currently causing all the commotion regarding Chef leaving and Tom Cruise somehow getting Comedy Central to stop airing this episode. You won't find this on cable anytime soon, but God bless the internet! The reason that some people are up in arms about this episode is due to how it goes after Scientology pretty hard. Now, as you could probably guess, I, Jesus Christ, Son of God, Son of Man, Lover of manna, is not a fan of Scientology. Sure, its got its moments, but that's the problem with most religions that leave My story out of it, they mostly all have a lot of "good points" to them, but those "good points" aren't what My dad is looking for. Anyway, this episode is harsh, but a lot of what is said about the history and what is behind the Scientology faith is actually true... thus the South Park social commentary that can sometimes shine through the show. If you got an extra 22 minutes to kill, this is an interesting episode that you are not likely to see anywhere but on the web for a while. Enjoy?
