Apr 19 ( – “South Park,” a relatively new adult cartoon, condemned from the outset for its vulgar and explicit content, has nevertheless gained a large following among American young people. The show lashed out against Christianity last Wednesday with sexually explicit slurs that few people would expect to hear voiced in public. One of the show’s character’s, Kyle overhears that his father’s marital discord is due to erectile disfunction.  Kyle, misunderstanding the point, set out to buy an erection for his father. According to the Catholic League’s expose on the show:

“The boys meet a priest who invites them to make the Stations of the Cross. The priest explains that Jesus was crucified, and that after three days had a resurrection. “Res-erection?” exclaims Kyle. ‘That’s what my dad needs.’ So they designate another boy, Cartman,  as Jesus, hang him on a cross and wait for him to die and have an erection.”

William Donohue, president of the Catholic League, noted that the show tried to cover its actions by “tacking on a nice commentary on Jesus at the end of the show.” But, “the damage the writers wanted to do was already done and was thus beyond redemption,” said Donohue.

The South Park cartoon is a production of Comedy Central, a joint venture of Time Warner Entertainment Company and Viacom International.
