Radical Islamic Web site takes on TV's 'South Park'
For years, the show "South Park" has made fun of things usually too controversial to target. Religion, in particular. Jews, Catholics, Mormons, Scientologists, Hindus, Buddhists... No one is safe.
In last week's episode, the world's biggest religious figures came together, including the Muslim prophet, Mohammed. To poke fun at censorship guidelines against showing him, Mohammed was first kept inside of a moving truck. Then he wore a bear costume.
