Koran-burning 'pastor' loses website
Dove World Outreach Center is out of reach
Red-nosed pastor Terry Jones, who plans to burn copies of the Koran and Jewish text the Talmud at the weekend, has either had his website hacked or his ISP has pulled the plug.
The site, at http://www.doveworld.org/ is unavailable this morning.
The pastor of a tiny fundamentalist church in Florida, which has reportedly lost half its congregation since the publicity-seeking preacher started his latest campaign, has become a central part of media coverage of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks this weekend.
The church, which has run previous campaigns with the rabidly anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church, has struggled to find support for International Burn a Koran Day. Muslim students in Florida have been advised to stay off the streets while the stunt happens.
The Dove World Outreach Center also sells "Islam is the Devil" T-shirts and runs an eBay business.
Jones first hit the pulpit in Germany but left the country after members of his congregation accused him of financial shenanigans.
Recent days have seen the publicity stunt disowned by Sarah Palin and Afghan commander General David Petraeus. ®
you know you are in the shit....
when Sarah Palin thinks you are a nut job.
I saw this moron on tv last night banging on about going ahead if theres no sign from god.... man i was praying for a thunderbolt right then...
nope. invisible, impotent friend it is then.
PS, that money in germany was just resting in his account by the way
Organized religion ...
Organized religion is the root of all evil.
That's not to say that all organized religion is evil, mind.
An it harm none, do what ye will.
No, I'm not Wiccan, but I grok the sentiment ...
If even Sarah Palin thinks you are too radically right-wing
perhaps you might start thinking?
Oh, wait, this is a fundamentalist, so thinking is probably considered sinful.
What really makes me sick is that in a time when I hear several Muslim groups are shifting their end of Ramadan feast so that they do not coincide the September 11, out of respect for those who died, we have an idiot like this tarring all Muslims with the same brush.
BTW, could they not fine him on environmental charges?
