Florida Pastor Terry Jones on Saturday made good on his threat to burn the Islamic scriptures, lighting a copy of the Koran on fire to protest the imprisonment of Iranian Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani.
Jones had threatened to burn the Koran and images of Muhammad back in February as a way to demand Nadarkhani’s release from prison in Iran. Nadarkhani has been jailed since 2009 following his arrest on apostasy charges for his conversion to Christianity and is reportedly facing execution.
Wearing an “Infidel” T-shirt, Jones burned a copy of the Koran and an image of Muhammad in a portable fire pit on church property late Saturday afternoon, the Gainesville Sun reported. About 20 people gathered for the event, which included speeches by Jones and another pastor calling for Nadarkhani’s release. The event was also streamed live over the Internet.

I totally disagree with Christians burring the Koran. The horrors of the Koan can best be displayed by quoting from the verses where an Arab named Muhammad tells his followers to cripple and kill for “allah’.
I have a similar experiences, reading the biography of Adolf Hitler. To understand the mind of this antichrist, you should read “main kampf”. By burning the book, you just antagonize political opponents. Better to expose them.
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
