what? morals in south park?
new york times reporter virginia hefferfan writes a really nice article about the moral lessons in south park.
"the real strength of "south park" is that it flatters freethinkers by mocking christians and jews, including jesus himself (a resident), along with the stand-out holy figures buddha, muhammad, krishna and laotzu. (they form a clique called super best friends.) but that stylized freethinking carries, of course, some dogma of its own. true, the boys of "south park" ? cartman and kyle, together with a schmo called stan marsh and some hangers-on ? are unaffected by whatever spiritual troubles used to depress the "peanuts" gang. they have a more specific problem: american hypocrisy, the combination of greed and sanctimony that lets religion and would-be spirituality provide cover for rapacity. where the "peanuts" children were sad, the kids in "south park" are furious and vengeful."
