Quran burnathon back on?
I’m. So. Tired. Of. This. Charade.
Terry Jones, the Florida pastor no one had heard of before he proclaimed 9/11 burn-the-Quran day, says that despite his concession earlier today his plans to torch the Quran may be back on. From the Los Angeles Times:
In other news, the extremists at Fred Phelps’ Westboro Baptist Church had picked up the torch—literally—earlier tonight and said they would hold their own Quran-burning party. Also, The New York Times has a story tomorrow looking at how the media has covered this story; it’s an expedition I partook on at GetReligion this morning.
