Sowing the seeds of love…

September 9th, 2010


The Rev. Terry Jones, pastor of the highly inappropriately named “Dove World Outreach Center” is planning to burn 200 copies of the Koran on Saturday.

Of course many muslims around the world will see the actions of this sad, bitter, self-proclaimed pastor with a flock of 50 as: “America burns the Koran”, which is about as ridiculous as thinking… I don’t know… random example off the top of my head… “Islam attacked the World Trade Center”.

Here are some quotes from the reverend:

“We have nothing against muslims. They are welcome in our country.” / “Islam is of the Devil.”

“[General Patraeus] needs to point his finger to radical Islam and tell them to shut up.” – Yes, because a firm talking-to was all Islamic extremists ever needed.

“We must send a clear message to the radical element of Islam.” – Surely Hallmark has a card for that. Do you really need to insult a billion people in order to make a point to the relative few (especially when the US military is already on the case)? Beside, isn’t it perhaps a bad idea to poke a stick in the eye of a bunch of suicide bombers?

Meanwhile, in a parallel stunt, renowned evolutionary biologist and notorious atheist Richard Dawkins will be burning copies of the Bible, the Koran, the Torah, the Bhagavad Gita, “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance”, Robert Graves’s “Greek Gods and Heroes” and all known copies of “The Mighty Thor”.
