“South Park” Creators: A Blessing to Counter a Curse

posted by Mark Herringshaw

Once again, cartoons are proving dangerous business…

The radical Islamic Web site, revolutionmuslim.com has warned the creators of the cable television cartoon “South Park” that they could be killed for airing a show depicting Muhammad in a bear suit. We answer with a blessing!

In an entry posted Thursday the site says that Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the authors of the irreverent comedy, could wind up like Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh who was killed by a radical Islamist in 2004 after producing a film that showed beaten, naked Muslim woman covered in writings from the Quran. The posting included a photograph of van Gogh with a knife protruding from his chest.

“We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo van Gogh for airing this show,” states the site. “This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.” The revolutionmuslim.com declaration includes an audio from a sermon delivered by U.S.-born preacher Anwar al-Awlaki saying assassination is justified for those who defame Muhammad. al-Awlaki is in hiding in Yemen and remains on a list of al-Qaida leaders targeted for capture or assassination.

Let’s pray first for the safety of Stone and Parker and for all those who choose to use satire as free speech in order to expose the suffocating injustice of radical Islamic fascism. Let’s also offer a blessing for them in the face of this curse they’re enduring…

“God, bless Matt Stone and Trey Parker. You always speak freely, without censor or fear. You say what you will and you mean what you say. You do not yield to threats or fear, and those who follow you do not yield either. Yet your very name is Peace and you always bring peace, in the end, when you are present. This is your nature and your highest desire. You side with justice and against injustice, and you choose to give your own life in order to bring an end to unrelenting evil in this world. God, in the Name of Jesus we pray for a soon and certain interruption to the rampant threats and acts of violence coming from the supporters of radical Islam. Though they use your name, they do not speak for you. Stand against them. Stop them. And thwart their efforts. We also ask that you would protect those like Matt Stone and Trey Parker who have dared use satire to expose the hypocrisy of those who would use religion to justify terrorism. May we in the civilized world rise in unity to their defense. Give us courage to withstand the fear of these threats. We thank you for the rights of free speech. While we may not agree with all the cynical innuendoes of farces and satires, we do pray for the preservation of their right to speak freely. We pray this in Jesus’ name…”

    Islam is such a stupid religion. Mohammad never even existed. Like all religions there was no founder of Islam. Rather Islam evolved from Arabian moon worshiping cults. I mean look at the top of their mosques. Hey if there any Muslims upset about what I’ve said – tough. You’re religion is ridiculous.

    Muhammed is no better than a steamy pile of camel dung. Your prophet fornicates his own asshole with Allah’s big toe while masturbating to jewish women engaging in lesbian acts. I dare you dirty sandpeople to come after me. !83!

    I have to agree with Boris, it is not a religin that I condone as even being a true religin from the lord god, they do not even believe that jesus is the son of god. I do think that in time there will be more and more Muslims leaving there born into religin and following the one true god and his son jesus christ. I pray that anyone that has nerve enough to apose those kind of people, that take it apone themselves to act as gods and call it justifyed in the name of religin.

    “The great irony is that, if they could but see it, Christian and Islamic Fundamentalists are the same people. Their vision of life and how to live it is driven by the same needs and neuroses. What they hate in each other is a projection of what they hate in themselves… It is Literalistst who fight wars of religion with Literalists from other traditions, each claiming that God is on their side.” – Timothy Freke

    This is a wonderful prayer. I remember when I discovered Wikipedia four years ago and I read a comment of Trey Parker. An interviewer asked him, “What is the most ridiculous thing you have ever heard?”
    His answer was, “There’s this one theory out there that claims the universe just kind of happened in some sort of big bang, yeah, I think that one is pretty ridiculous.”
    P.S. Stop the hate.

    An interesting prayer. Do you also pray for South Park when that show satirizes Jesus (http://www.southparkstudios.com/guide/316/)?

    Thanks for sharing both your and Mr. Parker’s scientific imbecility. There was a hypothesis that a magical being spoke the universe into existence but that is a failed hypothesis – not to mention much more than just pretty ridiculous.

    Old post it looks like, but it looks like it is pretty full of hate and hypocrisy. Hmm, so it looks like God has been disproven as more people adopt Christianity percentage-wise every day than ever before. Even more than twice the rate of Islam. It seems that hate must be a tenant of any Faith or religion. Am I seeing that all people in religion (particularly those who take parts literally) are right wing fundamentalists?

    Well, that’s not my boat, baby. Christian I am, liberal (extremely) I am, take The Christian Bible literally (where it is due = most of it) I Do. Have 0% doubt that Jesus the Christ is Lord God I Do. Proof? Yes, but you’d pretty much have to be me to have My Proof, again I have 0% Doubt and 100% Belief in Lord Jesus and His Infallable Word. I have tons of Faith, no Faith is not Blind Devotion, it is full devotion granted by Grace after undeniable Proof of Truth.

    Someone up there was laughing at the big bang; it could have happened. A “magical” being creating it perhaps. I don’t think most Theists call their god/gods “magic”, but to each their own.

    Another person proposed the question, “do you pray for the South Park creators when they are making fun of Jesus?” or whatever. I, personally do, you know, because I am a Christian (the real kind) and we are to bless our neighbors. God makes it quite clear that everyone is our neighbor.

    It is pitiful to see this kind of evil-hatred happening on a “spiritual”-ish website.

    Much Love to you all and all.
    Yea, it is probable that this will have no views, that is OK love shared is always good even if none notice.

    1/3 of all Scientists believe in God.
    The majority of the world is Christian.
    Cool.
