Pastor Terry Jones of Gainsville, Florida is planning to mark the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks with plans to burn 200 Qur’ans.
Everyone and their mom (even the racist moms!) have spoken out against this event. The Dynamic Duo of Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin have also denounced Jones and his plans to burn the Qur’an.
Therefore since everyone across the political spectrum is in agreement that it would be disrespectful for Jones to be doing something like this, there’s not really too much for me to say except for this: It would be a shame if there was any violence from Muslims anywhere in the world stemming from this event because although Terry Jones is white, Christian, and American, he in no way represents all whites, all Christians, and all Americans… which should really go without saying but for some reason, people can’t seem to wrap their head around that kind of concept when it comes to Muslims so I figured I would spell it out.
