Fred Phelps sticks in his oar

I figure ol’ Fred has been a little bummed that Terry Jones managed to get all that attention for threatening to burn some Korans, when the good folks of Westboro Baptist struggle to keep themselves in the public eye. So now where Terry has declined to tread, Westboro’s rushing in. But Fred is also planning to burn an American flag, since the burden of his prophetic message is that the U.S. of A. is doomed for its tolerance of homosexuality. Not to mention that he also has nothing but bad things to say about Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Judaism, Hinduism–well, basically about every faith but his own. Anyway, the YouTube of Westboro burning the flag along with the Koran will, one hopes, sufficiently confuse those Muslims inclined to identify the behavior of a radical Christian pastor with U.S. foreign policy that riots and assaults on American troops don’t occur. One hopes.
