My 'Pastor Terry "Burn a Koran" Jones Photo Scrapbook': At the Office

Since he’s on the verge of setting off a major conflagration between the Christian and the Muslim worlds, I thought it might be worthwhile for us to look at some pictures of Pastor Terry.  I’m really interested in your take.

From what I’ve read, there are only two pictures hanging in the Pastor’s office, one of George Bush and the other of Mel Gibson.  (Of course, I didn’t know, until I tracked down the clip, exactly what the “photo” of Bush actually showed.  Because the Pastor is obviously a Braveheart fan — having named his very “out there” You Tube pontifications after the film, I’d say the poster offers some fodder for interpretation, as well.

How do you read these?
