Florida pastor Terry Jones is back. If you recall, he caused an international sensation in pledging to burn a copy of the Qur’an (Koran) and then backed down in exchange for a new car. Well, Jones has now proceeded in holding a trial of the holy book and proceeded to burn it after his flock found it guilty. Jones serves as the judge for the trial at the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla.
In a demonstration of public insanity, Jones insisted that it was all particularly legal because “[w]e had a court process. We tried to set it up as fair as possible, which you can imagine, of course, is very difficult.” The trial featured a Christian convert as the prosecutor and a Dallas imam as the defense lawyer. If true, what imam would agree to participate in such a hateful and ridiculous display.
The sentence was carried out by soaking the book in kerosene for an hour and then burned. The church chose burning over “drowning.”
The church then took a stand against intolerance and violence by burning a religious book. With the exception of recruiting Taliban in Islamabad, it would be hard to find a jury of their peers.
In the video below, Jones accuses the Quran of such crimes and “rape” and “deception” and challenges the “so called peaceful Muslims” to appear to defend the book.
