ALEXANDRIA, Va. A Muslim convert from Brooklyn was sentenced Friday to nearly 12 years in prison for posting online threats against the creators of the "South Park" television show and others he deemed enemies of Islam.

The sentence -- largely in line with the term sought by prosecutors -- came after Jesse Curtis Morton, 33, offered an apology for his conduct, saying he "contributed to a clash of civilizations" by espousing a violent ideology.

I hope Trey and Matt get to lick the "tears of unfathomable sadness" from Morton's face.

He “contributed to a clash of civilizations by espousing a violent ideology”? Interesting choice of words. I’ll wager that this is not the last that we’ll hear from this terrorist in training.

There is a show on which only attacks Christianity. It commonly simply makes flat out lies with no purpose at all. Nothing to do with the show or anything, just maliciously slander Christianity.

I did see them sort of making Osama look like a cool and crazy guy but not even a hint of attack. I have never seen even the sligtest slander of Islam, which of course you don’t have to lie to say something bad about them.

I watch it more just to see what they are doing tho often I have to turn away it is so disgusting.

It is hardly ever funny but it is interesting. Throw out enough sex and outrageous behavior and it will not be boring.

Truly astonishing how many characters are meek and contrite once they’ve been caught dead to rights, found guilty, and it’s time for sentencing.

Wonder if they’re all sincere....

Meh, South Park is pretty equal opportunity. They make fun of Christians, Mormons, Scientologists, Muslims, Jews, Liberals, Conservatives, Pedophiles, Hippies, celebrities, Canadians, yuppies, gays, video gamers, environmentalists, new agers, abortion, transgenders, fat people, rich people, poor people, handicapped people, gang bangers, Hollywood, red-haired people, goths, boy bands, God, Satan, etc, etc, etc. If they haven’t made fun of someone that you think they should, just wait until next season and they probably will.

You don't know much about SP do you? As far as the non-slander toward muslims, that is total BS. They did enough about muslims and their goat lovers to fill half an episode.

Don't spout off on things you don't know anything about.

OOps.... Sorry for your sorry. :)

You are absolutely right about Family Guy. It's a worthless unfunny POS show. I love when SP skewered the show by showing that the family guy writers were nothing bu Manatees in a water tank randomly picking balls to fill plot lines.
