The Wednesday Whack-job: Pastor Terry Jones

The Aardvark and I couldn’t let this day pass without making some sort of reference to Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Centre, Gainesville, Florida.

So, we’ve made reference to him. He and his antics (if they go ahead) will cause untold harm. It is generally understood that his beliefs, and indeed his church, represent virtually no one. If that is the case, why hasn’t someone taken Pastor Jones aside and knocked some sense into him? Are they too afraid? I mean, to announce to the world that he intends to burn copies of the Koran on 11 September is hardly the action of a sane man.

Pastor Jones, you are a whack-job!

  1. Wonderful message. But . . .

    This church is a small group of decidedly non-Christian “Christians” who plan to protest against Islam due to misguided beliefs and prejudices.

    In pre-mature “response” to an event that has NOT YET HAPPENED . . . Moslems in other countries are burning AMERICAN flags, attributing the ignorance of a few to the whole of America.

    What’s up with that?

  2. The real problem is that we have allowed his message to gain momentum at all by giving him air time which seems to make some folks think he is a force to be reckoned with. There are already enough in the U.S. who hate Islam as a religion without trying to understand what the religion really follows. Lumping all of them together, the same way they are lumping all Americans together when they burn our flag. If we would ignore these people instead of even bothering to listen to them, they might not gain the support of other like-minded nut cases across the world. That’s how the real trouble gets started.
    Good example– Sarah Palin and the tea-party movement. Thank you, John McCain, for visiting THAT insanity upon us! Enough said.

  3. He should never have been given press. I wrote about this individual on my blog this morning: Shame On “Pastor” Terry Day http://jillfeyka.wordpress.com/2011/04/02/shame-on-pastor-terry-jones/
