    Seems that this is a rare thing for Comedy Central to do.

    Story from E! (Warning: some possible NSFW text in there)

    Has this ever happened before? Like South Park actually getting an episode pulled?

    Yeah, that's weird. Of course, it will only make the episode more popular! I know I need to see it now :)

    It was pretty bad, well if you are very religous. I'm not that often offended, but I could see how some people would be.

    I still am one who thinks if you don't like it turn it off. Don't tell others what they can/can't watch.

    I turned it off...the turning point for me was the bleeding statue of the Virgin Mary...she was bleeding from her...well, um...rear end...

    that was over the line for me...

    Patient: "Doctor, it hurts when I do that"
    Doctor: "Well, don't do that, then"

    If you find the show offensive, don't watch it.

    Southpark is a show that people KNOW is offensive to begin with. Why should anyone be shocked?

    That was a great episode. I wasn't offended even a little. Stan's dad saying he needed a miracle cure to get over the "disease" alcoholism was great.

    It was a great episode.

    The animal christmas episode always grosses (sp?) me out a lot more.

    :)

    I'm not an avid watcher, although I do like to catch an episode once in a while (and the movie - top 5 of all time :up: ), so I missed this episode.

    Now, I wan to watch it more than ever!

    have not watched South Park in a long while

    but please - they started Christams episodes with Santa battling terrorists and then Jesus with Brian Boytono saving the day. Where could it go from there :rolleyes:

    South Park hasn't been my cup of tea since the second season. This sounds offensive and nasty, but if you want to watch, knock yourself out.

    That episode ROCKED. They made fun of the tards who see Mary in their trees, clouds, and toilets.

    I love 'A Woodland Critter Christmas'. That has to be one of my all-time favorites. The mountain lion cubs montage about learning how to perform abortions has me in tears every time I see it. I've got to look at the listings to see if it's going to be on again soon.

    I fully encourage making fun of religious fanatics, I'm just not a fan of South Park's scorched earth way of doing so anymore.
