Russian Religious Groups Hate "South Park" Too

by on September 8, 2008

Reuters is reporting on an effort to get Comedy Central’s South Park banned from Russian television under a statue that seeks to ban extremism. The Russian Union of Christians of Evangelical Faith filed a complaint against an episode aired on the 2×2 network in January, with spokesperson Konstantin Bendas stating the show “insults the feelings of religious believers and incites religious and national hatred.” The specific episode in question is “Mr. Hankey’s Christmas Classics,” which aired in the United States in December 1999 and features a variety show of Christmas carols done South Park style.
