“Rev” Terry Jones: or how to be a total fucking pervert

Today’s post will be short, sharp and incandescent.

We generally reserve the word “pervert” for those whose twistedness is of a sexual nature. I don’t know why since any process, or set of beliefs, or indeed anything else, can be perverted. And in my view the perversion is the more heinous the further the perverted version is from the original. In the case of the so-called Reverend (I’m more likely to revere a holy dog-turd) Terry Jones then I suspect a new physical constant will need to be developed to describe the distance between the teachings of Jesus Christ and Mr Jones’ sick misrepresentation of them. Certainly light years don’t do the separation justice.

So just in case there is any scintilla of doubt, perhaps I could provide a few theses and antitheses to drive the point home:

  • Jesus was a tolerant, anti-establishment and radical moral revolutionary: Mr Jones is a blinkered, crass and pathetic conservative.
  • Jesus wanted us to love our enemies: Mr Jones hates every fucker who isn’t exactly like him.
  • Jesus encouraged us to remove our own planks before worrying about others’ motes: Mr Jones evidently wasn’t fucking-well listening.
  • Jesus exorcised demons: Mr Jones wants to demonise half the planet.
  • I am a Christian: I have no idea what the fuck Mr Jones is, but it isn’t that.

And as if the perversion of Christianity wasn’t enough, Mr Jones wants to pervert the memories of those tragically killed in the 9/11 atrocity. They deserve better than that. Much, much better.

  1. As happens rather often, reading your blog, I can’t disagree with a word of what you write – what a sane, reasonable, lucid and indeed absolutely excellent post. (All this despite, err, the fact I’m a Tory – not sure which of us ought to be more worried by that …)

  2. It seems this Jones chap only has around 50 in his congregation… he therefore must have the most super-efficient PR system going. Possibly of the allegedly horned and tailed variety. Amazing how sad little people like this who have no clue about the rest of the world can garner so much attention… and cause so much potential damage.

  4. Amen, my friend. Jones is a nutter and as a Christian, I find nothing Christian-like whatsoever about his stupidity, intolerance, ignorance and inane insistence on going through w/ his stunt, despite widespread international condemnation.

  5. I think the correct response is from Luke: ‘If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic.’ In other words, if Pastor Jones insults you, then do not offer a response, but merely ask him to repeat his words. Anger is not a good response for anger.

    • Thanks for your sobering comment! And of course my post is deliberately employing hyperbole, and using scatology to make a point.

      But I do take one issue with your biblical exegesis: Jones has not struck me, but rather he strikes at a whole body of people and it is that which outrages me. And whilst it would still be the responsibility of the perpetrators should they resort to it, I also fear for those who will be struck as a consequence of Jones’ un-Christian and foolish provocation of the more radical followers of the faith he so disgracefully insults.
