Florida church backs down from Quran burning


Terry Jones calls off his Quran burnathon, but not before getting gobs of international attention and wasting the time of American politicians who needed to talk him down from this ledge. The New York Times reports:

“We have at this time no regrets,” said the pastor, who heads the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainvesville. “We feel we have accomplished our goal. We are very very happy with the outcome.”

Earlier in the day, Mr. Jones was praying for guidance about his plan.

“He says he’s someone who is motivated by his faith,” Mr. Obama said. “I hope he listens to those better angels and understands that this is a destructive act that he’s engaging in.”

What goal was that? A bit of repentance would not be out of line.
