The Westboro Baptist Church announced on its infamous God Hates Fags website that they will burn copies of the Koran as well as US Flags tomorrow, and called Pastor Terry Jones a "false Prophet."
For those of you unfamiliar with the WBC, these are the same people that claimed that 9/11 was a "gift from God" and punishment for sodomy. They are the same guys that said of the Holocaust Memorial in DC: "American taxpayers are financing this unholy monument to Jewish mendacity and greed and to filthy fag lust." They are the same people who famously picketed the funeral of "Matthew Shepard," a gay victim of a hate crime, saying he will burn in hell.
Their statement, which argues that the only "job" left for Moslems is to kill the Jews (pdf), concludes with:
"God hates Doomed america! God hates Muslims! We will burn your Koran and bloody-Doomed-american-fag-flag (whore Old Glory) to remind you it’s so!"
Well, as an Atheist Fag I am not unhappy with this event. Seriously. No statement from Obama or Clinton or FBI visit is going to change their mind. I hope that no Administration official humiliates him/herself by trying. Meanwhile, I do hope this event gets a lot of publicity, and that Moslems in the Middle East who are outraged by the Koran-burning take note that their holy book is burning along with the American Flag and, much more importantly, no American law or official can stop this from happening. This is exactly why America is so admirable.
