As South Park has done from time to time ("Proper Condom Use" , "My Future Self N Me"), this episode tackles the issue of using scare tactics to get children to behave. Ultimately, all of the events in this two-parter happen because the kids were scared into believing that they would go to hell if they didn't confess. While this is a common Catholic practice, is it really the best choice?
This episode also tackles the issue of homosexual love triangles where one point happens to be Satan and another point happens to be Saddam Hussein ... a common problem.
Overall, this episode is very well done, and has plenty of great moments.
