With his latest stunt being deemed the "accidental discharge of a weapon" in the parking lot of WJBK (the FOXNews affiliate station in Detroit) just after completing an interview about his planned protest against Islamic Law scheduled to be held outside of the nation's largest mosque (source)
, Terry Jones has reached new heights in his hate mongering ways. Earlier this month, he and his members of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, FL put the Holy Qur'an on trial and burned a copy leading to a deadly riot in Afghanistan where a dozen people were killed. (source)
[Note: there are conflicting stories as to how many were actually killed with as few as six and as many as 45 being reported by various news sites – no matter, because even one death is one too many.]
How long will this hate mongering lunatic be allowed to continue spreading his hate in a nation with freedom of religion? How long will he be allowed to spread his venomous views of a religion about which he obviously knows nothing? If he were on the same rampage toward Christianity would it be tolerated? These are incredibly volatile times with rapid and theoretically positive democratic changes throughout the Middle East where fledgling democracies could be born. The last thing the world needs right now is a religious zealot on some kind of personal, rage-fueled crusade. At what point does a person like this need to be locked up and held accountable for his crimes of ethnic intimidation and attempting to incite violence?
