Overdue outrage

What with Good Friday and all, I missed the real religious tragedy of the last week: the gutless gutting of South Park.

Call it a sign of our times. Comedy Central this week refused to air an image of the Islamic prophet Muhammad on “South Park.” However, the network did consent to showing, in the same episode, President Bush and Jesus flinging poop at each other.

Whether Muslim rioters or Scientology superstars, Comedy Central buckles under pressure. Will they dare censor Jon Stewart?
