"Dude, Scientology has an Office of Special Affairs?!?! I didn't know scientists even had affairs!"

The Village Voice is reporting that the Church of Scientology attempted to investigate Parker and Stone after a controversial 2005 episode of “South Park” titled “Trapped in a Closet.” The Emmy-nominated episode, airing on Comedy Central, satirized such figures as Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology member Tom Cruise. 

According to the Voice, former Scientology executive Marty Rathbun “revealed at his blog that in 2006, Scientology's Office of Special Affairs — the church's intelligence and covert operations wing — was actively investigating” Parker and Stone.

The Voice reports Monday: “We have more leaked OSA documents which give some idea of the extent of the spying operation on the ‘South Park’ offices and the people who worked there.” (more)
