The Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla., has hanged an effigy of President Barack Obama from a gallows on its front lawn, a move DWOC pastor Terry Jones said was in response to Obama’s recent endorsement of same-sex marriage, as well as his stance on abortion and what Jones called his “appeasing of radical Islam.” I guess burning the Quran was not enough. Good thing he is a Christian, eh? This stuff worries me. Where does he find license for this either in Scripture or common sense? Oddly enough, Jones has contracted some sort of Stockholm Syndrome as
Oh, I’m sorry, but that’s how I read the headline… Pastor Terry Jones has once again threatened to burn Qurans, this time in protest of Iran’s continued imprisonment of Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani. The Florida minister, whose previous protests attracted violent reaction, tells CP why he is once more taking such a controversial stance. (here) This man is not a pastor, and I would question his Christianity.
Most will focus on the fact that this is considered the most Islamic city in country, but… In Dearborn, Mich., anti-Islam Pastor Terry Jones and an assistant were ordered to jail tonight after they refused to pay a $1 peace bond to hold a rally at the largest mosque in North America, the Detroit Free Press reports. After a two-day trial-like hearing, a jury sided with prosecutors and agreed that Jones would likely “breach the peace” with his planned rally outside the Islamic Center of America. Authorities argued that a riot could erupt. Prosecutors had estimated the cost of
While Rodney tries to take a snipe at me, undermining the seriousness of his post, he goes further in his attempt at defending Terry Jones and attacking both Christian and myself, proving once again that Rodney will by nature take the contrarian position on any and everything. What Rodney doesn’t get in his rush to try to make a point is that neither Christian nor I are saying that Terry Jones is the cause of all the angry feelings towards the United States coming from the Afghanistan people. What I am saying is that Terry Jones is causing the
Let me make this clear: There is nothing wrong for standing up for the Cause of Christ, for the Church, for the Scriptures – but when you purposely attack another, you become what you supposedly hate. What he has done now is to cause the death of innocents because he wasn’t following Christ. He is rejecting Christ. An American Christian preacher who caused an international uproar last year by threatening to burn the Koran has put himself back in the spotlight after incinerating Islam’s holy book — again with deadly consequences. Thousands of protesters in northern Afghanistan, enraged over
Watching Morning Joe, Pat Buchanan (who I agree with on more than a few things, which may surprise you) was speaking about the President getting involved and waiting, two years down the road for the Courts to either affirm or negate his actions. Should the President get involved in this? Should he send Federal Marshals to stop Terry Jones from burning the Qur’an which will put American service men and women in jeopardy, and more than a few civilians including Christian Missionaries?
The Florida pastor whose plan to burn Qurans on Sept. 11 generated worldwide outrage among Muslims and pressure by the U.S. government to relent said late Thursday that he might not call off the protest after all. Pastor Terry Jones told NBC News that “we are a little back to square one” after a supposed deal involving a proposed Islamic cultural center in New York evaporated. At a press conference Thursday afternoon, Jones had said he was canceling the Quran burning because a Muslim imam had assured him that the proposed Islamic center could be moved away from the
