Tom Cruise and South Park
Tom Cruise seems to be in the news for all the wrong reasons lately. It is reported that the actor and scientologist, Cruise has threatened to not promote his upcoming film (Mission Impossible 3) if Comedy Central aired an episode of South Park that poked fun of the "religion". Viacom (makers of MI3) is the parent company of Comedy Central (makers of South Park). Scientology seems to give people an attitude and rob them of a sense of humor.
The "Trapped in the Closet" episode from season nine of South Park had Tom Cruise refusing to come out of the closet and made fun of scientology.
The creators of South Park released this press release..
"Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for Earth has just begun! Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!"

The voice of the Chef, Isaac Hayes has also recently quit the show as his sense of humor was stolen by scientology.
"The Closet" the Controversy and Tom Cruise
"Parker and Stone publicly parted ways with Isaac Hayes, the longtime voice of Chef, after the "Shaft" legend complained South Park had gone too far in satirizing religion. The duo said Hayes, a Scientologist, never complained about the show until it took on Scientologists." E Online
South Park was also under attack by Catholics
