BJ's BLOG 10/25/11 "South Park vs. Scientology"
Marty Rathbun has posted a copy of an internal Church of Scientology document on his blog that suggests that the church has launched an intense investigation into the lives of Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park.
Rathbun, who is the former Inspector General of the Religious Technology Center (RTC), (the organization that controls the copyrights and trademarks of the materials relating to Scientology), says that Scientology was so enraged after the 2005 South Park episode called “Out of the Closet”, that a “witch hunt” was ordered.
They document reads that they are trying to find a direct line to Stone and Park and even their friends and family were targeted.
"There are some strings that will be pulled on the PRC on Stone,” the document states, "Otherwise the special collections will be debugged in order to get some viable strings that can be pulled". Rathbun then explains that "Special collections" is Scientology code for "trash digging."
What a creepy organization; if you’re a religion that was formed by a guy who used to write science fiction novels and is now your new messiah, how can you not get made fun of?
What do you expect? I wish I would sit down with John Travolta and/or Tom Cruise and ask them what they are thinking.
I have no problem with anyone wanting to be religious, but this is another example of religious nut jobs taking things too far. This is an invasion of Trey and Stone’s privacy and I hope something gets done about it!
