south park takes on scientology

Earlier this evening I watched last night's episode of South Park, which took on Scientology in a scathing manner. Click here for a snippet. It had a tendency to hit you over the head with its message but it was worth it.

The best part was the end credits, which hit home the reality of the "Church" of Scientology's unrelenting use of litigation to prevent people from criticizing it. In particular, the "church" uses copyright laws to prevent anyone from discussing copyrighted church documents. It's as if a Christian church had a copyright on the Bible and then sued any atheist who critiqued it using long passages from the work itself. This is another example of how a powerful entity is able to stifle free speech using intellectual property rights.
