You can mock Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Mormons, Scientologists, etc.

. . . but you can't joke about Muslims.
After a warning from a Brooklyn-based Islamist group, Comedy Central decided to censor last night's episode of South Park over concerns about further offending Muslims by featuring a satirical representation of Mohammed.

Following last week's episode, the cartoon-rendering of the prophet appeared with his body obscured by a black box and the name Mohammed was bleeped out, the Associated Press reports. Muslims consider any representation of the founder of their religion to be blasphemous.

Last week's episode depicted the founders of various religions, including Moses, Jesus and Buddha, but did not show Mohammed outright.

Another example of those who complain about discrimination actually asking for special treatment.

By the way - - what is Brooklyn-based law enforcement doing regarding this Brooklyn-based Islamist group and its "warnings"?
