Idiot of the Week

Talk about backwards thinking.  For those of you who watch the news, you’ve probably already heard about this.  For those who don’t, here you go.  The dude shown above is Terry Jones.  He runs a non-denominational Christian church in Florida called the Dove World Outreach Center.  The church recently sparked headlines when they decided that on September 11th they were going to burn Qurans.  Surprising?  Nope.  Just last year, members of the church sent their kids to school wearing t-shirts that read “Islam is of the Devil.”  Oh, and their also not a big fan of the homosexual lifestyle.  Big shock there.

Now, you can believe what you want to believe, but it gets to a certain point where it’s just plain crazy.  This church is one example.  The nutjobs at the Westboro Baptist Church are another example (yeah, they’re the ones who protest outside the funerals of fallen soldiers.)  Hopefully one of these days, we can all just live in peace and listen to John Lennon.  And hug trees.  And drive hybrids.  And wear Phish shirts.
