Terry Jones :Exclusive Interview

Last edited Fri Jun 8, 2012, 09:28 PM - Edit history (3)

Source: Broward Palm Beach New Times, and Huffington Post

Gainesville pastor Terry Jones says his church has been contacted twice by the Secret Service in response to the display at the Dove World Outreach Center that features an effigy of President Barack Obama hanging from a noose. (The photograph sent to us shows an Uncle Sam dummy hung up; one from the Smoking Gun shows Obama in the noose.)

The Pulp spoke with him this afternoon about the display and about his declarations that he is running as a write-in candidate for president. Jones said the display was not meant to have any racial symbolism and was only ;a symbolic action saying we do not, of course, want him reelected. It is death -- of course, not to him. To his political career.

8. Please don't advocate for prison rape!

It's really not funny or appropriate, even if the dude is a fucking scumbag.

Thanks.

15. he should just be ignored and marginalized like the insane gobshite he is

he wouldn't be doing any of this silliness if the media didn't rush to cover him...

What pisses me off is that not that long ago most media professionals could easily distinguish legit news from attention whoring

5. Oh no, lynching a black man in effigy has no racial overtones. Heaven forbid.

Isn't this guy's 15 minutes about up?

Westboro Baptist Church

Views on Barack Obama

The Westboro Baptist Church believes that Barack Obama is the Antichrist, and that he forms an Unholy Trinity with Satan and Pope Benedict XVI, who they believe is the False Prophet.

Margie Phelps, daughter of pastor Fred Phelps and attorney for WBC, said in an interview with Fox News that Obama is "absolutely" going to hell, and that he is "most likely the Beast spoken of in the Revelation". She also said Obama's presidency is a sign of the Apocalypse.

The guy's reference to Obama supporting gay marriage fits them, too.

9. IRS!

He's making partisan pronouncements. That pretty much takes care of any claim of tax free status.

Now, only if IRS has the agents or the will to enforce it. I saw two posts this last week here on that very topic. Apparently, at least one IRS manager has gone public on this very subject.

Go git 'em, IRS.

10. IRS already got him

According to the local scuttlebutt. He lost his religious exemption for running a sweat shop with his parishioners' labor.

All around scum bag.
