Apparently since showing the image of Muhammad is a bad thing (if I was to get lessons or a prophet, I would like to know what he/she looks like) the latest South Park episode (which spoofed that very fact) as put Trey and Matt the creators in a bit of a pickle.

"We have to warn Matt (Stone) and Trey (Parker) that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show," said a posting on website RevolutionMuslim.com.
This was done after Comedy Central aired the episode. Most recently they reran the episode, but censored out the bear costume in question.

Whatever happened to freedom of speech? Freedom of religion? The Islamic belief of peacefulness and cooperation?

Death threats? Violence? Way to create a benevolent image of your faith :rolleyes:
