…..after watching two recent episodes of South Park. The Sunday Leader has, according to their words, “uncovered a shocking new example of the West’s contempt for Buddhist culture and values…” after “uncovering” a cartoon Buddha snorting cartoon cocaine, with a cartoon Jesus next to him watching cartoon porn. I’m trying hard not to state the bleeding obvious, but its South Park! [insert appropriate expletive(s) here]! The newspaper has then themselves contacted the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Moral Uplift Secretary H. M. Herath about this shocking revelation, and have got the response they needed.
We will take it to the Sangha and to the Buddhist Congress. This is defamation to every religion. It is a crime and hurts others’ beliefs, which shouldn’t be done by any person. We should respect other people’s beliefs.
To The Sunday Leader and the author of the news article, Mr Hardy, if you think your helping Buddhism or the Sri Lankan people by any means, with some world class BS like this, you are much help as hiring chimps to run a banana factory and to clean the toilets. Please, stop this tomfoolery and join everyone else in the 21st century. Or look up the word ‘context.
