To commemorate the ninth anniversary of 9/11, the Dove World Outreach Center will hold a Quran burning. Senior pastor Terry Jones, organizer of "International Burn A Quran Day," is also the author of the book Islam Is Of The Devil, which I'm sure is a convincing demonstration of intellectual rigor and celebration of diversity. The Dove World Outreach Center members are pals with the delightful folks from the Westboro Baptist Church, famed for their "God hates" fags" protests. From the Christian Post:
When asked if he has ever participated in interfaith dialogues, Jones said “of course” and said he has talked to the CAIR director in Tampa, Fla. He also said he has invited Muslims to come to the 9/11 Quran burning event and is willing to dialogue with them during the activity.
Jones emphasizes that his church does not just speak out about Islam but also homosexuality, same-sex marriage, and abortion...
