South Park: Through The Looking Glass

Thursday, April 13, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Only in America. I don’t know whether to cheer or jeer.

On the one hand, I don’t think it makes a lot of sense to mock anyone’s religion, or to lampoon their religious leaders.

And I don’t think, on the cusp of Holy Week –or any week, actually– the creators of South Park struck a blow for religious tolerance.

On the other hand, their approach has certainly highlighted the issue of self-censorship.

On the other, and final hand, so what? Does the controversy help or hinder success in the war, which is difficult to define but which surely includes some reconciliation with the vast majority of Muslims who don’t want jihad against the West but who would also welcome some minimum of respect for their faith.
