WND Loves Them Some Terry Jones

WND Loves Them Some Terry Jones April 12, 2012

The Worldnutdaily has never met a wingnut preacher they didn’t love, but Terry Jones, the Quran-burning pastor from Florida, seems to be their current favorite. It’s a match made on Planet Wingnuttia. Under the guise of a “news” article — I use “news” when speaking of the WND the way they use “gay” — they want you to know that he’s now “threatening” Iran.

Rev. Terry Jones warned today he will burn copies of the Quran if Iran doesn’t release an imprisoned pastor sentenced to death sentence after converting from Islam to Christianity.

Jones said in a radio interview that Iran has until April 28 to release Youcef Nadarkhani, currently facing death for preaching Christianity in Iran.

Declared Jones: “We have tried to contact Iran. We have tried to contact many of the religious leaders there. We have put out an ultimatum that if they have not released Pastor Yousef by April 28th we are calling for a worldwide burning of the Quran and also images of Mohammad as a protest.”

Iran’s persecution of Nadarkhani is, of course, an appalling violation of human rights. But you have to laugh at the idea that Jones thinks he can influence them to stop by threatening to burn the Quran. And I love the image of him trying to contact Iran. I can see him calling information and asking for the number to Iran. What a moron.
