Tie each burning of each book with a single event. He will be out of books by the end of the year and how could anyone say that what he did was MORE evil that beheading a journalist or stoning a woman to death.
That's a very good idea....

Watch and see the preacher take a completely new tack. On the morning of September 12 he'll announce himself as the victim of a godless government, one that prevented him from burning Quran. He just wants more than his allotted 15 minutes of fame, that's all.

He was surprisingly good at media-whoring.

Default You believe this chap in Florida is far from the Ivory tower?

The definition being of the ivory Tower being that place where believers are interchanged with non-believers, and where messages are specified accurately for who hears or does not hear, is it believable that he makes a pledge of Faith with his congregation to casual street talk OR the conceptual corrections by great mathematicians?

This is becoming a popular form of protest!

Springfield Pastor Plans To Burn Quran - NewsChannel5.com | Nashville News, Weather & Sports

This is in my area. These people seem hell-bent on answering the radical Muslim's call to holy war. I just wish they'd all go to a big field somewhere and fight it out, and leave the rest of us out of it.

Does Reverend Jones even realize that a large portion of the Quran IS actually the Christian Old Testament (and the Jewish Torah) (they are one and the same thing). It would be more appropriate if he tore out and burned JUST the Mohammed portion of the Quran.
