Why Bullshit didn't make an episode about Scientology... Fucked up Showtime. Why do they care so much about Scientology? Do "they" really have so much influence?
What took you so long to take on Scientology? Was the network worried about it? [Trey Parker]: To be honest, what kept us from doing it before was Isaac Hayes [who does the voice of Chef]. We knew he was a Scientologist. And he's an awesome guy. We're like, Let's just avoid that for now. But we're friends with Penn Jillette, and Showtime wouldn't let him do an episode of Bullshit! on Scientology. We're going, That's fucked up. And hearing other people say, "You can't do that,"-you can only say "You can't do that" so many times to Matt and me before we're gonna do it. Finally, we just had to tell Isaac, "Dude, we totally love working with you, and this is nothing personal, it's just we're South Park, and if we don't do this, we're belittling everything else we've ripped on." So we realized we had to do it, and now that we've done it, now it's like we've sort of opened the floodgates. People will be less scared.

Roland Griffiths and his colleagues brought 36 people into the laboratory for an eight-hour session during which they experienced their first psychedelic high. Two thirds of them said that the trip was among the most profound spiritual events in their life, Griffiths reports. A third rated it as their number-one awakening, and their family and co-workers said they seemed happier in the months after the experiment, according to a follow-up study just concluded."
