He’s Baack.. This time around controversial Pastor wants to burn 3,000 copies of the Quran July 22, 2013 – Posted in: Banned / Censored / Destroyed – Tags: Book Burning
Remember back in 2010 when Pastor Terry Jones incited parts of the Muslim world with his highly publicized burning of the Quran to commemorate 9/11?
He called it “International Burn a Koran Day”
In what was supposed to culminate in very large event in New York ended with Jones burning a single copy of the Quran at his Gainesville, Fla. church. 10 days later, in response to the madness, riots in Afghanistan began and when it was over 20 people were dead, including seven United Nations workers.
Well, why stop there. This time he wants to burn “one book for every person killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States.”
Terry Jones with the book he wrote, Islam is of The Devil
Apparently Jones doesn’t stop at just burning books, in January of 2013 he burned effigies of President Obama and former President Clinton outside his church. He was fined $500 by The City of Gainesville for his actions.
ADDENDA – 7/23
This video was brought to our attention courtesy of the Pastor’s twitter account @Stand_UpAmerica and of course, less than a minute in, after some 2nd Amendment babble, we find out that all this is happening because of “the great Satan, Obama”[youtube]http://youtu.be/4HnXd5_Cl90[/youtube]
