Pastor Terry Jones may have €˜suspended’ plans to burn copies of the Quran at the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla., on 9/11, but the religious nuts of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, says they will.
The Westboro group, a religious cult, is a hate group that masquerades as a religion. Its followers are known for confusing their hate-filled speech and behavior.
While claiming to be Christians they demonstrate in word and in deed that they are not followers of Jesus Christ, but rather servants of the devil.
Although the church burned a Quran in Washington in 2008, it did not get much media attention. On its web site Friday, the church called Pastor Jones in Gainesville a “false prophet €¦ bullied by sissy, intolerant rebels worldwide into cancelling plans to burn that blasphemous idol called the Koran.”
Westboro also declared that it “will burn the Koran and the doomed American flag at 12:00 p.m. on September 11, 2010 at Westboro Baptist Church.”
