Florida pastor Terry Jones burns copies of Koran outside church

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/florida-pastor-terry-jones-burns-copies-koran-church-article-1.1069458?localLinksEnabled=false

An Islamophobic pastor in Florida is playing with fire once again.

Terry Jones, who sparked international outrage in 2010 when he vowed to burn copies of the Koran, ignited copies of the Islamic holy book outside his Dove World Outreach Center Saturday night, according to the Gainsville Sun.

The pastor who once promised he would "not ever" burn a Koran also burned an image depicting the prophet Muhammad, the newspaper reported.

Jones carried out the incendiary act along with about 20 others to protest the imprisonment of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, a Christian jailed in Iran since 2009 for his religious beliefs, according to the Christian Post.

Hate is a blinding force.

6. You must have forgotten to add the rest of the story

You know, the part where Jones's brave action so impressed the authorities in Iran, that they immediately saw the error of their ways, converted the entire country to christianity and released Nadarkhani.

WTF did this idiot hope to accomplish with such a stupid move. I know, I know, get his name in the papers again.
