Soul legend Isaac Hayes has quit animated TV series South Park after accusing the show of promoting intolerance and bigotry.

Hayes, a Scientologist, has played Chef on the hit cartoon series since 1997, but feels he can no longer stomach the show's take on religion.

He says, "There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs of others begin."

The 63-year-old singer released a statement yesterday (13MAR06), severing his ties with the series and controversial co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

In it he fumes, "Religious beliefs are sacred to people, and at all times should be respected and honoured.
