STEVE EARLE LIKENS AMERICAN TALIBAN TO JESUS

Steve Earle's upcoming album, "Jerusalem," features a song which praises American Taliban member John Walker Lindh.

The song is called "John Walker's Blues," and the lyrics describe the U.S. as "the land of the infidel," and proclaims that when Walker dies he will "rise up to the sky like Jesus."

Sources in the music industry are predicting that the song will be banned from most radio playlists. One Nashville DJ says that the song puts Earle "in the same category as Jane

Fonda and John Walker and all those people who hate America."

Anticipating the backlash, Earle himself told an Ontario audience: "This song just may get me f---ing deported." Earle's album is scheduled to be released in late September.
