Isaac Hayes Off South Park

Isaac Hayes who plays 'Chef' the romantic crooner/school cook has quit the Comedy Central show 'South Park'.

While perfectly willing to cash his checks when making fun of other religions, such as Christianity, Muslims, Judaism and Michael Jackson (er Jefferson), the outspoken Scientologist has drawn the line following last November's "Trapped in the Closet" which poked fun at Scientologists and Tom Cruise and John Travolta in particular.

While the South Park faithful will surely miss the crooning cook who has been a central figure of many episodes, hopefully the creators can find a non-Scientologist willing to help slay stereotypes in the future. We'll miss you chef.
