I think that the creators of South Park have always made inappropriate, immature, stupid episodes. This is typical of them to create a musical offensive to Mormons. It really just goes to show that they don't have any talent with comedy. Comedy can be created without offending a group of people. The only viewers who will be laughing are most likely just as immature and pathetic as the producers of South Park. For those of you reading, don't assume that I am just a Mormon standing up for my beliefs(although, that would make this comment justifiable as well); however, I don't belong to any religion. That doesn't mean that I don't have respect for other people's beliefs though. I think it is immature to make fun of anybody's religious beliefs, especially those belonging to a religion that does so much good for society. So on behalf of all Mormons and/or those who are like me that hate people who disrespect others beliefs, I hope the musical turns out to be a huge unsuccess.

Huh, sort of like how the Mormons have shown "disrespect" for the beliefs of those who are gay?

Typical Mormon BIGOT.

How sanctimonious of you.... It's precisely because of people like you that this will be a HUGE success!!! Have you never questioned the validity of the stuff that is being crammed down your throat??? PULEEEZE....

It's hypocritical for people to say that they are offended when someone attacks their beliefs but find no problem with a church who's very doctrine calls all other beliefs abominations; a church which spends so much money fighting against people who believe that they should be able to marry the one that they love regardless of gender.

And I think it's pretty f'ing hateful for a religion to target a minority and attempt to control them. Are you Mormon? Or not? Either way, should religious beliefs be allowed to strip away rights? Are you one of those NOM people?

I love South Park! They make fun of everyone, they do not discriminate. If you can't laugh at yourself then what? Utahns should loosen up and laugh a little at the strangeness of us. These guys are or were Mormon and are simply making comedy from what they know. Just loosen up folks.

Hello, I am a South Park fan and practicing Mormon. I'm only 18-years-old, but I have a profound interest in my church's teachings, given that I've read all sorts of variety of books on my church, from Rough Stone Rolling, to Stand a Little Taller. I can't wait for the opportunity to serve my church as a missionary next year!

I understand that me loving the politically incorrect humor in South Park does put me in an awkward situation with my beliefs; I love the show because it literally makes fun of everybody: Mormons, Jews, Gays, Catholics, Democrats, Republicans, hippies, rednecks, etc. South Park skewers all of us, and is truly an equal opportunity offender and the most libertarian and politically INcorrect show on TV. I love it!

I think people who are offended by South Park are just simply too PC and get offended by the dumbest stuff in life. They're the same exact people who make a big deal about everything and refuse to relax and chill.

Mormons who are crying about this did not object to movies, TV episodes, or other Broadway work that makes fun of other religions or beliefs. Only until it happens to them, do they think they have to complain.

Also, Trey Parker said in an interview that he loves Mormons because we aren't as hypocritical as much as other religions are. That's why the "All About Mormons" episode was actually fairly sympathetic, compared to their repetitive humor on the Catholics, Jews, and especially Scientology.

You can criticize me all you want. I don't care. I have a strong testimony of the Mormons church, and it's not shaken by these two geniuses. Then again, I'm a Libertarian, and Mormons are generally idyllic politically correct Republicans.

WAKE UP, sweety....God is patient, He will wait for you. Meanwhile, search outside of what is spoonfed to you... explore on your own. LEARN. Read, then decide.

What are talking about? I have a great knowledge of the Mormon Church and, like I said, even looking forward to going on my mission next year. I read A LOT of books and novels (it's a hobby :) about religion, philosophy, movies, music, etc.

Anyway, given your grammatical errors, it sounds like you are the one who needs to learn. Also, don't call me sweety. That's just gay. Unless if you are a woman. Calling someone "sweety" over the internet is just childish and stupid.

I'm glad I have the power of free agency to avoid taking people like you seriously.

That's ok honey, I will wait to enlighten you to God's One True Word. The Bible. Christians have patience with new souls like you. Just know that you are loved and cherished...

Oh brother! You must be one of those born-again nutjobs. You guys are just as self-righteous as the Mormons in Utah that you want to "save."

So, William..what do you think about the LDS targeting gay people?

"So, William..what do you think about the LDS targeting gay people?"

I do not take the position of the church leadership regarding gay people, and given my free agency, which means I have the ability to choose otherwise, Proposition 8 caused me to feel alienated because I support gay marriage (I am a Libertarian :)

However, if opposition to gay marriage is morally indistinguishable from Jim Crow racism, anti-Semitism and the like (as so many Liberals say), why on earth aren’t they screaming bloody murder at Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid and the other Democratic politicians who run the US government? Surely, they matter more than Mormon donors. Why aren’t they bigots even though they hold the same fundamental position as Mormons?

Meanwhile, where is the Liberal rage at the world’s most extreme cadre of homophobes, the Islamic supremacists, whose orchestrated campaign against LGBT people goes far beyond preventing them from exchanging vows?

After all, Mormons are, like the stereotype of Christians, devout white devils, the scapegoats of the age, the new boogeyman of post-9/11 America.
Just as all Muslims are not terrorists, I hope you, "No Mo", understand that all Mormons are not homophobes. Please don't be so quick to judge us.
