I thought the part that was banned was a joke! I found out tonight that comedy central in fact did censor the mohamed image from teh show. What a bunch of hypocrytes. Who cares about mohamed? This episode showed jesus craping on America from crying out loud! I was not offended by this episode in the least, and I find that the fact that the episode was censored offends me more than anything else. What the hell is happening to this country?

I agree with craig, Comedy Central has proved to me that it's ok to show the virgin mary bleeding out her a@@ but it's not ok to show an innocent cartoon of the prophet mohammed. Looks to me like freedom of speech is dead in this country.

its not that it was over freedom of speech, more of the fear of terrorism. The enemy is in fact the terrorists themselves.

Sure the networks are part for blame to caving to terrorists.
