HOLLYWOOD — A Christian advocacy group has blasted Comedy Central for last week’s episode of the controversial cartoon show “South Park,” in which the network censored an image of the Prophet Muhammad but showed an animated Jesus defecating an American flag. President Bush was depicted doing the same thing.
Charmaine Yoest, vice president of the Family Research Council, said it was “outrageous” to air the prophet’s image and censor another. “It only adds insult to injury that Comedy Central is so sensitive to the feelings of Muslims without seeming to care one little bit with how Christians would react,” Yoest said. . .
Rabiah Ahmed, spokeswoman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said, “We welcome their responsible decision making,” but urged that respect be given to all of the prophets, including Christ.
