    Awesome.

    Hey, if Isaac Hayes wanted to shield Scientology from any negative attention, he has failed woefully! If anybody had not yet gotten the memo about Scientogy’s insanity, he’s just reposted it with his ridiculous gesture followed up by his pathetic disingenuous explanation.

    Fun fact: Barry White was originally the model for Chef but because he’s a devout Christian he declined the voice job.

    So Isaac Hayes took the job because the first choice thought South Park was too hard on Christians! He then keeps the job for a decade until the cartoon gets around to blasting Scientology, and within a month he’s out the door, claiming some general increase in religious intolerance.

    Priceless.

    From what I understand, after the trapped in the closet episode aired, Isaac Hayes laughed it off saying it’s not really like that. He then suffered a stroke, and while he was recovering, the whole I’m quitting because you make fun of religion thing happened. There is speculation that it was his $cientology handlers who actually were behind his change of heart. Of course, that is speculation, but I can see it happening.
