Isaac "Chef" Hayes quits 'South Park'

Soul singer Isaac Hayes, who voices the suave, ladies man Chef on the hit animated satire South Park, has quit the show over its continual ridiculing of religion.

Comment: While I'd like to give Mr.Hayes the benefit of the doubt, I think the creators of the show have a point when they observe that his "sudden case of religious sensitivity" only arose after the show lampooned Isaac's own religion, Scientology.

P.S. If you're interested in seeing the "offending episode" on Scientology, you can view it online in at these links (Real Player Format or .AVI), hosted by the Operation Clambake website.
