The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights became enraged when Comedy Central aired it's season finale of the smash hit cartoon, "South Park" on December 7th. The unsavory portrayal of the Pope and the Virgin Mary apparently struck a nerve.
A re-broadcast was cancelled. In the episode, a statue of the Virgin Mary appears to be bleeding from it's nether regions. As Catholics arrive en masse to be healed by the blood of the statue, the Pope himself makes an appearance to investigate.
The Pope determines that the statue is merely having a menstrual cycle and that the blood is of no value. In the episode he states, "A chick bleeding out her vagina is no miracle," adding,"Chicks bleed out their vaginas all the time."
