Plot details follow.

The South Park children build a Church to live in sinlessness, and do not go to school, avoiding home as much as possible, and listening earnestly to Cartman, who acts like a televangelist-esque preacher. Attempts made by the parents, from emotional appeals to bribery on the part of Ms. Cartman, fall through, as it only fuels Cartmen's religious zeal. Meanwhile, Kenny calls from Ensenada, where the bus he was run over by dragged him and which he thinks is Hell, and tells about the "Underworld" for Cartman's sermons: "that everyone in Hell speaks Spanish, that in Hell there is water, but if you drink it you will bleed out your ass for seven hours, and there are a lot of trinket stores that all sell the same trinkets".

Meanwhile, in the real Hell, Satan attempts to smooth things over with Saddam, only for him to drunkenly sleep with the former dictator. He tells Chris about what happened, but he becomes offended when Chris refuses to be properly upset by this development. Then, Chris and Saddam keep getting into fights, which lead to the two murdering each other; nevertheless, they keep reappearing in Hell to kill each other again. Fed up with the constant fighting and unable to decide whether he should be with Saddam, whom he finds sexually attractive, or Chris, who is kind, Satan asks JonBenét Ramsey for help regarding his two lovers; she suggests he ask God for help. Satan goes and sees God in Heaven (which is occupied solely by Mormons). He relays his issues God, but the leader of Heaven calls Satan out for being too over-dependant on relationships for emotional stability and advises him to dump them both and try to learn to appreciate himself.

Back in South Park, Cartman reveals to Stan and Kyle that he, in fact, only opened the church to con kids out of money, and not out of religious fervor (as according to Sister Anne, people can easily be forgiven by God). Sister Anne then manages to disband Cartman's church by having Jesus come and explain that there's more to being a good Christian than just constantly praying to him and God. As punishment for his sins, Cartman is sent somewhere worse than Hell, Ensenada. He happens to meet Kenny at the bus stop. A similar event happens in Hell, when even after Satan explains his intent to be single, Saddam continues to harass him; the Devil reveals that he has "asked an old friend for a favor", and Saddam is forced to go live up in Heaven with the Mormons, which, to him, is Hell.
