It’s time to get out your matches and join Reverend Terry Jones as he seeks to start the biggest bonfire this side of the twin towers. The combustible fuel? As many spare Koran books hidden under your sofa…
Reverend ‘let’s light them up’ Jones, has sparked international controversy recently for promoting an event called “International Burn a Koran Day,” as we lead into the 10th anniversary of the twin towers attack.
Our Reverend has even gone on the record to claim ‘much’ of what he knows about the Muslim religion has been accorded by ‘watching YouTube videos,’ something that ought to have any devout follower quickly reaching for the fast forward button to see what he can learn too.
His teachings (if you want to call it that) gained acceleration after they got tossed from one dedicated Facebook fan to another.
Our aim is to bring to awareness to the dangers of Islam and that the Koran is leading people to hell. Eternal fire is the only destination the Koran can lead people to so we want to put the Koran in it’s place – the fire!
Which is more than telling when considering that the most paranoid (and only lucid) statements on Jones’ manifesto website, islamisofthedevil.com belie an intimate knowledge of what we here like to call media whoring of the most shameless variety. But then again if Princess Montag can do it, why not ‘Messiah Jones?’
In a day and age where ideas are confined to 140 character tweets, the violence of modern films dulls our senses, and the attention of most is on the frivolous dribble of celebrity gossip, sports and weather, we all know how much it takes to grab our attention.
Very lucid indeed.
The reverend’s sparks of ‘lucidness’ has not only necessitated a permit from the city fire department, but other international fire depo’s as well.
General David Petraeus, the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, catching a whiff of the Reverend’s lucidness had this to say :“images of the burning of a Quran would undoubtedly be used by extremists in Afghanistan – and around the world – to inflame public opinion and incite violence.”
According to the Huffington Post, Jones said he has received more than 100 death threats and has started wearing a .40-caliber pistol strapped to his hip. Which we can only imagine helps our Reverend Jones stay permanently lucid.
But for all the death threats our reverend has allegedly received, he shows little sign of putting out the bonfire that has surely caught the attention of those entities who would stop to show the Reverend that two can play with ‘no return upon sale’ match sticks. Which begs the question does Reverend Jones really just want to end up as a martyr?
“It’s hard for people to believe, but we actually feel this is a message that we have been called to bring forth,” he said last week. “And because of that, we do not feel like we can back down.”
Just like, one would suppose, the Muslim terrorists supposedly responsible for 9/11…
