This past Saturday, on the 13th, Ian Anderson graced the stage of the Kauffman Theatre in New York. He was there to present his Thick As a Brick tour, where he plays the whole 1973 album during the first half of the show, and plays the whole of the latest opus, Thick As a Brick 2, during the second half.
Well, people outside where proving Ian's point by being really Thick! It seems that the repulsive right-wing hate-mongers of the Westboro Baptist Church were picketing outside the theater.
According to a PDF you can find online, to which I will not link, you can read: “Ian is representative of a world of perverse adulterers who have enabled & justified fags”, and “The Bible requires the death penalty for adulterers as well as for sodomites”.
Oh my! They really represent what Ian was singing about on Aqualung.
Oh people - what have you done
Locked Him in His golden cage.
Made Him bend to your religion
Him resurrected from the grave.
Here it is, live at Montreux.
