Pastor Terry Jones Burns Quran

Florida: The controversial Gainesville pastor, who threatened to publicly burn a Quran on the anniversary of 911 last year, has gone through with it.

 However, his latest stunt received very little publicity. On the Dove World Outreach Center website Pastor Jones announced a trial date."International judge the Quran day. Yes. We are going to do it," Jones said.

"The Quran, if found guilty, can be burned," said Jones. And after six hours of testimony in front of 30 spectators and a crew from an Orlando film school, it was burned.
