Those are some IN-TENSE enemies you've got there, South Park! Hell, pretty soon they're going to have their own Super Power Building!
We were seriously creeped out to learn that the Church of Scientology reportedly launched an investigation against South Park through "informants, public records, and various other means" in an effort to search for "vulnerabilities" in Trey Parker and Matt Stone's lives. WTF?!?
Even though the Church wasn't able to do any serious damage to the South Park creators and their show, they WERE able to get the Scientology-themed episode Trapped in the Closet taken off the air.
How did they pull that off, you might ask? Tom Cruise allegedly refused to promote Mission: Impossible III if the episode was EVER aired on Comedy Central as a re-run.
"So, Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun! Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!
Trey Parker and Matt Stone, servants of the dark lord Xenu."
SO creepy! We're just glad that nobody was hurt…at least that we know about…
The Church of Scientology has got a seeeeeriously dark underbelly.
