Idol Chatter

Aziz Poonawalla over at City of Brass has a great post up about the last week’s 200th episode of “South Park,” which included mentions of the various controversies it has caused throughout its years on the air.
In the episode, the Prophet Mohammed appears in a bear suit (he appeared once before on the show as a super hero) and gives other public figures advice on how not to be offended or insulted by others practicing free speech. After the show aired, the radical website RevolutionMuslim (based in NY) “warned” the show’s creators that they “will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh…” Dutch film director/producer and writer Theo Van Gogh, was murdered in 2004. He co-produced the film “Submission,” which criticized the treatment of Muslim women.
