Florida Pastor Won’t Burn Qurans

Reverend Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center has called off his controversial plan to burn copies of the Quran on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

From CNN:

The Rev. Terry Jones of the Gainesville, Florida-based Dove World Outreach Center, standing with a Florida Muslim leader, also said the imam who planned a mosque and Islamic center near ground zero in New York has agreed to move it to another location. But the imam who appeared with him said that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf in New York agreed to speak with Jones about possibly moving the center.

A spokesman from Soho Properties told CNN producer Vivienne Foley that “the Muslim community center called Park51 in lower Manhattan is not being moved.”

Jones, meanwhile, said he will travel to New York on Saturday to meet with Rauf.

The pastor appeared at an afternoon press conference with Imam Muhammad Musri of the Islamic Society of Central Florida, who said he will make the trip with Jones.

    Just now, on “ABC World News”, the Pastor said he doesn’t know now whether he will or whether he won’t— that he’s “Reconsidering”— renigging on his previous statement. I don’t know what’s going on here, but, personally, I don’t like any of this and everything ELSE that’s been happening anymore with regard to Religion in general in this Country. Every time you turn around, it’s a Question, it’s a Controversy, it’s Offending someone or some Group, it’s being “Taken-out” of this or that, we can’t use the same “Words” we always traditionally did……
    All I know, all I can say, and all I ever will say, is, “God Bless America”, “One Nation under God”, “In God we Trust”, and, “Merry Christmas”! Those who want to challenge it or change it need to go somewhere else. I guess I’m off Topic, but I’m thoroughly disgusted and fed-up with all this kind of stuff— in general.
