A Pakistani Reverend Phelps Wannabe?

The Gypsy Scholar has this item -- including a good pass at being thoughtful -- about the picture at the left. We are in "God Hates Fags" territory here, people, except that the fraction of the Muslim world that would identify the comments in the photo as totally out of line is substantially smaller than the fraction of the Christian world that defends Fred Phelps.

I suppose we should take Voltaire's words about "defend to the death your right to say it," at face value and practice them. At the same time, we have to consider that at some point it may become necessary, if we care to survive, to kill some, many, of these people saying these things.

Keep your powder dry; keep your nuclear weapons well maintained and ready to go.
