Skip to comments.VIRGIN MARY DEFILED ON “SOUTH PARK”

Catholic League president Bill Donohue remarked today about last nights episode of South Park (it will run again for the next three nights):
A South Park character gets a DWI and is ordered to attend AA meetings. Told about the 12-step program, he concludes that he needs a miracle to cure him. The plot then focuses on a statue of the Virgin Mary who is bleeding out her ass. The Vatican dispatches a cardinal to investigate and he is sprayed with blood when he walks behind the statue. He then declares this to be a miracle, which draws even more people. The alcoholic, now in a wheelchair, is also sprayed with blood: he then claims he is cured and jumps out of his seat.
Pope Benedict XVI goes to investigate. He, too, is sprayed with blood when he walks behind the statue. A reporter says, The pope investigated further and determined that the statue was not bleeding out its ass, but its vagina. To which the pope replies: A chick bleeding out her vagina is no miracle. Chicks bleed out their vaginas all the time.
Comedy Central is a subsidiary of MTV, which is owned by Viacom. On the board of directors of Viacom is a practicing Catholic and a distinguished public servant, Joseph A. Califano; he served under Presidents Johnson and Carter. We are writing to him today requesting that he intervene in this matter. We want a) an apology to Roman Catholics and b) a pledge that this episode be permanently retired and not be made available on DVD. In the event Viacom does not cooperate, we are asking Mr. Califano to issue his own statement of condemnation. We are asking our members to contact him as well. Remember, they chose to insult Our Blessed Mother on the eve of the Immaculate Conception, and the holy day itself.

I stopped watching South Park after the Mel Gibson episode last season.
"south park will not do this to islam, not if they want to keep their heads attached to their hollyweird bodies."
Now THAT's something I can agree with you on.
Yet that episode came out with a positive comment on Jesus. Those who trusted in Satan lost.
They make up for it with Mecha Streisand.
Either way; it's still disgusting and not funny.
We know that God is just, and He will smite these decadent infidels in this decadent culture in His own time.
Do they insult atheism, paganism, secularism, and moral relativism as well?
Heh... not really! Jesus saved Santa from Muslim terrorists and saved Christmas! :~D and that's why we think of him every year at Christmas! He's a hero
They're not making fun of Mary in this latest episode... they're making fun of people who think they're cured by anything coming out of a statue.
We get it. And it's still not funny.
Of course :~D
I am betting however that they take thier time discussing any mention of Mohamed. That might jump the shark as far as life expectancy goes.JMO
You are going to spoil the party here if you keep that up.
BTW, I thought it was a funny episode.
"discussing any mention of Mohamed"
I would watch that one.
The Virgin part of this episode was over the top.
I'm not Catholic, but found it unwatchable.
I agree with you. South Park panders to the most devolved human minds on earth. You know, weak minds.... , etc.
And every episode like this is sheer projection from its creators. Trey and his partner are the epitome of male arrested developement. I'm sure their core viewership is prepubescent(sp?) males in terminal wet dream phase who obsess and suffer from vagina, birthing envy.
They've done Mohammed. He was in the Super Best Friends episode, along with Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Joseph Smith, and Seaman.
On second thought, maybe they had something there.
Bad taste still isn't against the law...unless you're a Moooslim.
