Parker and Stone had criticized their home network, Comedy Central, for refusing to display an image of Muhammad in a South Park episode. Though the image of Muhammad was not present, an image of Jesus Christ (a recurring character on the show), depicted defecating on an American flag and President Bush, was left intact in the episode, which many claimed illustrated the network's own hypocrisy.  This scene was likely actually done to make a point by Parker and Stone---that while Jesus can be parodied on television, Muhammad is considered off-limits due to the potential of Islamic terrorism. It should be noted however that in an eariler season, Muhammad was shown (not censored) as being part of a religous super team along with Jesus, Buddah, and other religous figures.
On 4 April 2007, South Park parodied Donohue in the eleventh season episode "Fantastic Easter Special" as a power-hungry official of the Catholic Church who overthrows the Pope and sentences Jesus to death for going against the Church. (On the episode he calls Stan Marsh and Kyle Broflovski "whores," likely in reference to the above quote.) Pope Benedict XVI throughout the episode frequently questions Donohue's actions stating "I don't think that is very Christian." Donohue later overthrows Benedict and proclaims himself the Pope when Benedict objects to Donohue wanting to go against Jesus. In the final sequence, Jesus kills him using a Glaive, a reference to the movie Krull, then putting on a pair of sunglasses, a reference to the movie Blade."
And that is why Matt and Trey hate Bill Donohue.
