Station Sorry For Airing Bloody Mary South Park

WELLINGTON, New Zealand -- New Zealand TV network C4 apologized yesterday for showing a South Park episode that featured a bleeding statue of the Virgin Mary and pledged not to repeat it.

The show, titled Bloody Mary, was screened in early February by TV Works -- a subsidiary of Canadian-owned CanWest MediaWorks -- on its C4 network.

Roman Catholic bishops and church members condemned the decision to air the show and yesterday dismissed the channel's "so-called sincere apology" as "self-serving."

TV Works chief operating officer Rick Friesen said C4 probably would not have screened the Virgin Mary episode if it had known about the amount of offence taken by members of the public.
