Reverend is Relative

It is interesting to me, the {word nerd girl,}that preachers are called "reverend".
I have met very few who merited being revered.
hmmmm..
I was pondering this today when I finished walking in the graveyard and was listening to NPR in the car.
The news guy said, "Reverend Jones" --you know the one who wants to burn a Koran, and who the media of
this wonderful U.S. of A has turned into an international superstar/pariah--depending on how you feel.
Well, regardless of the Koran burning--which to me does not matter either way...a redneck wants to burn a book....I am sure it is not the first or last time..., This man is being called "Reverend"
By whom is he revered?--I am guessing about 50 rednecks at a "church" in Florida...

There are people in my life who, to me, need to be revered...like the lady at my school who donates all her
extra time to garden, b/c she wants the (yes, even the poor down trodden ones who will never make a trip to a botanical garden)  children to have butterfly gardens...think about that one for a minute.
Most preachers I have known have been borderline scoundrels to be quite honest...the sick-wife leaving, money stealing hipocrite variety, little kid molesting (this list can go on)...and I have learned that they are not to be revered.

What a shame that my religion is being represented by such an idiot!
Ay que lastima!

We were just talking about this guy. Yeehaw. Rick thinks the int'l ones who responded by rioting are just as redneck... for getting all riled by this {stupid} dude. What a mess.

I think so too...
how dumb can people be?
If this guy wants to burn the Koran...go ahead...I am almost positive he has never read it...so he does not even know what he is burning...
I mean how many times does our flag get burned up all around the world?

It might help if the media for the lack of anything (really??) else to report are giving this nut so much airtime! Just think if the media ignored this weak and ridiculous story there wouldn't be more nuts looking to join in!
