Scientology by South Park

"A lot of us don't agree with the choices the Chef has made in the last few days," one of the children eulogizes him at a funeral.

"Some of us feel hurt and confused that he seemed to turn his back on us. But we can't let the events of the past few weeks take away the memories of how Chef made us smile."

"We shouldn't be mad at Chef for leaving us," the eulogy concludes.

"We should be mad at that fruity little club for scrambling his brains."

With that, the ongoing take down of Scientology by South Park continues . . .

It was the latest salvo in a complicated and public war between "South Park" and the controversial Los Angeles church.

Hayes resigned from "South Park" more than four months after an episode - titled "Trapped in the Closet" - aired poking fun at Cruise, his sexuality and the modern faith that he adopted after going to Hollywood.

When it first debuted last November, Hayes reportedly laughed it off.

The resignation - which came in the form of a press release from Hayes' publicist - set off a fight with "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

Comedy Central quickly scheduled a repeat airing of the episode, but pulled it at the last minute.

Cruise reportedly threatened officials at Comedy Central's parent corporation, Viacom, that he would refuse to promote his new movie, "Mission Impossible 3," if the network aired the repeat.

The highly successful film series is produced by Paramount, a division of Viacom.

Reps for Cruise denied the allegations.
