Leave it to Christians to teach the world how to show love.
To mark the anniversary of September 11th this year, the non-denominational Dove World Outreach Center church in Florida will host an “International Burn A Koran Day.”
Pastor Terry Jones says he got the idea from “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day” and that since the announcement was made, people have been sending him copies of the Koran for the event.
According to the Facebook Event page, the purpose of this event is:
To bring to awareness to the dangers of Islam and that the Koran is leading people to hell. Eternal fire is the only destination the Koran can lead people to so we want to put the Koran in it’s place — the fire!
They call it an “international” event but as far as I know, they’re the only ones doing it…
(Jones has a website for his book, Islam Is Of the Devil, by the way, that’s just full of Christian love.)
It’s amazing: I don’t care for the Koran. I think people have the right to burn their own books. Yet you put it all together like this, and I feel disgusted.
I’ve contacted Jones with a few questions and I’ll post his responses in full if I hear from him…
