"Pastor" Terry Jones is trying to give Fred Phelps a run for his money for the title of "most insane, hate filled religious leader in America."

While his Quran burning didn't quite do that, though it did spark riots in the Middle East, get people killed, engender more anti-American sentiment and put our troops at increased risk, he didn't quite out do Phelps.

This stunt might not give him the crown for king crazy either, but it will sure earn him something (like hopefully a long, many day "talk" with the Secret Service)

Now he’s decided that hanging the President of the United States in effigy, in front of a church, is necessary and appropriate. Keep in mind, this in Florida, not Afghanistan or some other third-world hellhole where this sort of thing is common.
Addicting Info

He also released a video about his lynching protest

How long will it be until a right wing apologist comes out in favor (under the guise of freedom of speech) or give a weak statement of outrage.  Because you know if it had been Rev. Wright about Bush, you couldn't hear over the din of the right wing media calling for each and every Democrat in office to apologize, refute, denounce, etc., the display.

1:32 PM PT: ljcrazyhistorian posted a diary about this as I was writing mine.  His focuses on the comments and what is free speech.  Check it out

3:14 PM PT: I took the photograph  ljcrazyhistorian updated his diary with and pulled out the head of the analogue so you can get a better look at it.

8:39 PM PT: from jcrazyhistorian, and even better closeup

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
