    US pastor says he has plans for another anti-Islam protest

    • Pastor Jones to lead protest bound to insult Muslims
    • Will lead followers to largest mosque in US
    • Not concerned about more bloodshed


    Extremist US pastor Terry Jones has announced he will lead an anti-Islam rally outside the largest US mosque in Dearborn, Michigan, on April 22nd.

    The Florida minister provoked an international outcry last year when he announced plans to burn copies of the Koran on the anniversary of the September 11th attacks in 2010.

    He reconsidered his decision on that occasion but
    supervised the burning of a copy of Islam's holy book on March 20th this year.

    Jones, the pastor of a fringe church in Florida has been unrepentant about the bloodshed set off by the burning of the Koran.

    The event led to deadly protests in Afghanistan and has stoked anti-Western sentiments in many Muslim communities around the world.

    Ten foreign workers for the United Nations were killed by furious protesters in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif.

    Pakistanis also took to the streets in a nationwide move to condemn the Koran-burning, calling it a threat to religious harmony.

    At least ten Afghans were killed in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar on Saturday, on a second day of violent protests over the desecration of the Koran.

    Jones has now defiantly vowed to lead the protest in Michigan, still claiming the Koran incites violence.

    I can only say that Jesus - whoever and wherever he is - must be really proud of this guy.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
