…burn the Holy Book of a group of our citizens. Yessiree, that’s how we let those huddled masses ‘breathe free’ – lets hope they don’t get too bad a case of smoke inhalation.
The Dove World Outtreach Center is a classic anti-gay, fundamentalist church devoted to turning back civil rights a hundred years.
From the outstanding Religion Clause blog of Howard M. Friedman, Professor of Law Emeritus University of Toledo:
Religion News Service reported yesterday that the Dove World Outreach Center, a non-denominational church in Gainesville, Florida, plans to host an “International Burn A Quran Day” on this year’s anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. In response to a Facebook posting, people have been mailing Qurans to the church for it to burn. The church’s pastor, Terry Jones, author of a book titled “Islam is the Devil,” said that protests are a central purpose of his church. He said the goal is to give Muslims an opportunity to convert. This year, Sept. 11 coincides with the Muslim feast of Eid-al-Fitr.

The thing that’s most disturbing is that this church is using the exact tactics of the Taliban.
Be afraid America. Be very afraid – and get involved!
