No. Not Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson!!!

Three… two… one… and… does anyone really care?

 The controversial Westboro Baptist Church is vowing to picket the impending funeral of ‘Glee’ star Cory Monteith.

And a nation gets to… yawn?  But at least makes some sort of sense.  (It’s always interesting to note that Westboro has a better grip of pop culture than I myself was never paying attention to Cory Monteith’s romantic relations with Lea Michele).  A bit more puzzling is this, which is a “Westboro Baptist” news item that will get a lot less attention.:

Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson can now be added to the ever-growing list of musical acts receiving pre-show protests from the Westboro Baptist Church.
Prior to Anderson’s show at Kansas City, Missouri’s Kauffman Theatre on Saturday night, a group from the Topeka, Kansas based extremist church protested outside the concert, citing Anderson as a “representative of a world of perverse adulterers who have enabled & justified fags.”

It’s just because he happens to be in town.  If Pat Boone were making an appearance, they’d protest him too.  Also it may also be because … you know… Westboro Baptist doesn’t like Heavy Metal music.
