John Lennon + New York City vs. Qur’an-Burning Pastor

You can sure see why a conservative Christian like Ray Comfort might (posthumously, tastelessly) seek to make John Lennon a spokesperson for conservative Christian dogma.  

Below, John Lennon (posthumously, slightly off-key) overpowers the silly rant of the loopy, mutton-chopped, Qur’an Burning Pastor Terry Jones. Okay, not John Lennon himself, but you get the idea. (And below that is my attempt to restore the name Terry Jones to its rightful owner.)
