I Don't Like Isaac Hayes Anymore

Co-creator Stone said Hayes would be released from his contract and had the best wishes of the South Park team.

Stone said: "In 10 years and over 150 episodes of South Park, Isaac never had a problem with the show making fun of Christians, Muslim, Mormons or Jews.

"He got a sudden case of religious sensitivity when it was his religion featured on the show."

The religion he is refering to is Scientology.

The South Park episode is available here (.rm) and here (a few other formats). (It used to be on YouTube, but now "This video may contain content that is inappropriate for some users, as flagged by YouTube's user community.")

Weird.

my guess is that he was told to stop working there, or the skeletons in his closet that the church guards so strongly would come out.

To be honest though, the show wasn't nearly as funny as the mormon episode.

I concur wrt the Mormon episode.

Also, while taking a bath with some rye, I too came to believe the Church pushed him to quit.
