warning - slamming idiots like Jones and probably offensive to most religulous types...

I'm not offended,
I just feel obligated to mention that this is in exceptionally poor taste.

What MsStacy said - very poor taste, and NSFW.

Thank you.
And that is in no way meant to defend him or his actions,
which merit substantial ridicule.

agreed - mind you it's the Koran burning Terry Jones and he seems to epitomize poor taste.

If you were to call him a maggot,
more than a billion flies would demand an apology.

But it's not for his sake that I find this objectionable;
he deserves far worse. It is something like my objection to capital punishment;
it's not that the convicted don't deserve it,
but what the punishment does to society.

Ridiculing him in this way, you demean yourself as well.

I suspect that the intent of this image goes way beyond Terry Jones?

I don't understand why something pleasurable is seen as an insult. Besides, the best insult for this nimrod is for him to be buried in the obscurity he so richly deserves.

Absolutely - there was much grand speculation by the media as to the suitability of this story for broadcasting, which was all more hype to increase their market share of ratings.

While ignoring nutters and assholes is an effective way of dealing with them I have to wonder how many acts of evil are caused by those who are denied their moments of glory. Would Sadam Hussein have reached out across the ocean if he had been black listed by the media?

It's complicated - we have a media that appears to be acting part clown and part bully, all the while controlled by a few very powerful people and organizations.
