Rednecks shall roast weenies not burn Quorans

In Gainesville, a nice university town only two hours north of us, a fringe church, Dove World Outreach Center, with 50 some members led by man who calls himself Reverend Terry Jones has caused uproar in the muslim world and also in the USA by announcing the International  Burn-a-Quran Day on September 11. The mayor of Gainsville has strongly opposed this idea so has Gen. David Petraeus and Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Terry Jones was denied a burn permit but said that a lawyer had told him he would not need such permit to burn the Quorans that people have been mailing him. The reverend has received more than 100 death threats via email and is now, in good Florida redneck style carrying a pistol.  The redneck dingbat, ehrr.....reverend  has also written a book called "Islam is of the Devil".

Last year he also posted signs around the church with "Islam is of the Devil". Now, in Florida, there are thousands of small churches with bizarre signs about Jesus and God so I do not think people here really paid that much attention to another scammer who wants to make easy money from a small congregation. One of the haydealers I go to is also a preacher, he has, right next to his dump of a horse farm where he breeds cowboy horses a litte church. Some time ago he told me that his congregation had told him they wanted him to use the Church collect to buy himself a new Cadillac, so he did.
So, I do not think one should think that this spinn doctor of a redneck preacher has an intellect bigger than the Armadillo you just ran over. Good for him and his wife that he found an income and he figured out that he could preach hatred against the muslims probably to get more money in the collect. He underestimated though,  the new media environment we live in and now he is world news. Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton said to AP "It is regrettable that a pastor in Gainesville, Florida, with a church of no more than 50 people can make this outrageous and distrustful, disgraceful plan and get the world's attention, but that's the world we live in right now."  
Obviously the wingding has no clue what he is babbeling about and it is a shame that he got the  worlds attention. Again, the US is representing itself as a land of hatred and intolerance, led by money hungry idiots. Let us hope someone can come up with a way to make this guy change his mind about the burning of Qurans, and go to plan B, a Roast-a-Weenie Day instead. .
