Isaac Hayes quits 'South Park'
http://www.usatoday.com/life/televis...13-hayes_x.htmNEW YORK (AP) — Isaac Hayes has quit South Park, where he voices Chef, saying he can no longer stomach its take on religion.
The question now becomes: How will South Park write off Chef?

Hayes, who has played the ladies' man/school cook in the animated Comedy Central satire since 1997, said in a statement Monday that he feels a line has been crossed.
Hayes has voiced the role of Chef since 'South Park' went on the air.
South Park co-creator Matt Stone responded sharply in an interview with The Associated Press Monday, saying, "This is 100% having to do with his faith of Scientology... He has no problem — and he's cashed plenty of checks — with our show making fun of Christians."
