South Park Vs. Scientology

Tonight "South Park" took on Scientology. They basically told the whole crack-induced Xenu-thetan-auditing bullshit story that Scientology is based on (which you can get all the details here [1]). They also has a funny side dig about Tom Cruise not coming out of the closet. The best part was at the end, when the Scientologists were threatening legal action against Stan because he couldn't keep saying he was the reincarnation of L. Ron Hubbard. Stan replies with, "Fine! Go ahead! Sue me! I dare you!" It's obvious that the show's creators are seeing if they can push Scientology to sue them (something that twisted organization has been known to do a lot of in the past), but then the credits roll and every name was either "John Smith" or "Jane Smith".

Liz and I were laughing our asses off.

[1] A while back I started getting e-mails from someone who was rudely questioning my inclusion of the link on my Links page, as he viewed it as "hate speech" against his religion. I had no idea if he was serious or not, so I told him that he's entitled to his opinions, but the link stays up. He responded with a tone of "well, you're stupid for keeping that link up blah blah blah." I replied with the same, brief message, and I told him that it was the end of the discussion. I never heard back from him. I wonder if I'll get sued now for expressing my free speech.
