UK audiences may never see the episode.
Okay, so now I have another reason not to watch MI III. The first two, for those interested, are that (a) the first two MI movies were crap, and (b) Tom Cruise is one of my least favourite actors.
Anyway, in a move which proves why Matt Stone and Trey Parker are awesome, they issued a statment to Daily Variety magazine which read:
"So, Scientology, you may have won this battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun!
“Temporarily anozinizing our episode will not stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies.
"Curses and drat! You have obstructed us now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu."
Trey Parker and Matt Stone, servants to the dark lord Xenu.
