Me! Me! Look at ME!

More evidence that even men of the cloth can take a page from the Shock Jock Bible. The Dove World Outreach Center, a small Christian outfit in Florida has sparked international yammering with their oh-so-edgy plan to burn copies of the Koran on September 11th. It seems that when publishing a book called "Islam is of the Devil" didn't get them enough bookings on national news programs, the fifty or so genius minds at DWOC decided to up the ante. It took a bit, but now it's working - people are getting into a tizzy over a small busload of crazies. If even an armed right-wing militia group (named Right Wing Extreme, no less) can figure out that setting copies Koran on fire doesn't do anything to advance any reasonable cause of Christianity, everyone else should be able to figure out that they're being played by a bunch of attention seeking fruitnobs.

We'll see if Westboro Baptist Church decides to see that bet and raise.
