I always thought Isaac Hayes quit South Park in protest to the scientology episode.

    I remember reading everywhere that he left the show after the scientology episode because he was mad how they portrayed it (he is a scientologist). that's nowhere near what happened. he didn't quit at all and I didn't know this. this shit came out at least 8 months ago. was this not publicized?

    One of his scientology people quit for him after he had a stroke and couldn't speak or even comprehend it according to his son.

    I don't remember seeing that written anywhere. granted I have memory issues but i don't remember seeing this.

    That's the cost of having other people think for you, to me it's not different than any other philosophy that mandates you ascribe to it in totality leaving no room for the possibility it could very well be utterly false. It's very disheartening to hear how people struggle to leave, not just Scientology, but cult-like establishments in general. At the same time I'm under no illusions that for some people the fear of the repercussions keeps them complicit.

    For that I have no sympathy. Start killing a few scientologist here and there. Eventually they'll stop bothering you.
