South Park vs. the Scientologists

You may have heard that a re-run of a South Park episode making fun of the Scientologists got pulled at the last moment this week. Isaac "Chef" Hayes has also quit South Park since he is a practicing Scientologist. I am not a big fan of either Scientology or South Park, but you have to admit that the response of the South Park creators to this whole thing is pretty funny. Here it is:

"So, Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun! Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!"
The duo signed the statement "Trey Parker and Matt Stone, servants of the dark lord Xenu."
