Oh, they are *so* getting sued!
I am not a huge fan of South Park, but, my god (HA!), was the Scientology episode hysterical!
Much like the episode about Mormonism, this episode featured the crazy shit followers of this religion actually believe. And yes, at one point they had to put "THIS IS WHAT SCIENTOLOGISTS ACTUALLY BELIEVE" on the screen, because if they didn't, no one would believe South Park wasn't making it up (in case you don't know, the Scientology belief system involves aliens - I shit you not - and the South Park boys have actually met aliens before).
Of course, I'm not picking on Mormons or Scientologists exclusively. Transubstantiation. That's all I have to say to any Christian who's feeling superior. I mean, really: it's ritual cannibalism.
I know that a great many people find comfort in religion, but please. Religions are pretty much all wacky shit, but try to pick one that isn't quite so weird, OK?
(And as the husband-person says, "L. Ron Hubbard was pretty much a crap science fiction writer anyway." And I have to agree.)
I would like to take this opportunity to suggest that critical thinking is a good thing. I've written about this before. Don't be taken in by stupid shit. Think for yourself.
