Still Grateful, Not Yet Dead

Buried deep in a CNN report about one of the "reverts" who lobbed threats against the creators of South Park (they had the effrontery to stick Islam's founder in a bear suit) is this amusing nugget of info:
In an affidavit accompanying the recent complaint against ["revert" Jesse Curtis] Morton, FBI special agent Paula R. Menges said Morton, co-founder of the group called Revolution Muslim, worked with Chesser on a "clarification statement" after Chesser's postings. The pair made website postings that were -- despite their claims -- threats, Menges said.
The agent also contends the statement contained pages of justification under Islamic law for the death of those who insult Islam or defame its prophet.
Revolution Muslim's 2008 co-founders, Yousef al-Khattab and Morton, were both interviewed by CNN's Drew Griffin in October 2009. In the interview Morton, a convert to Islam and one-time follower of the Grateful Dead, defended the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and argued that further attacks on Americans were justified.
Too funny! Dude made a lateral--yet radical--move from following the Grateful Dead (the long-winded 60s rock group) to following the grateful dead (the shahids who get to rock and roll with virginal cuties up in heaven).
