In Case You Were Wondering


We told you last week about pastor Terry Jones’ attempt at a return to the spotlight by putting the Quran on trial for what he dubbed International Judge the Quran Day.

We know you’re dying to find out what happened so we’ll cut to the chase.

On Sunday the Quran was found GUILTY of inciting murder and other dastardly deeds. Yes, we know, you’re shocked to hear that Jones and his ilk would find the Quran guilty. We’ll give you a moment to pick your jaw up off the floor.

The jury deliberated for eight whole minutes. The Quran was then soaked in kerosene for an hour before being set aflame (as punishment) right there in the courtroom.

If you need a refresher, Jones is the Florida pastor who sparked an international uproar when he promised to burn the Quran on last year’s anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He then promised NOT to burn the Quran. On Sunday he proved he’s a welcher.

So what did Jones accomplish with his stunt on Sunday? Mostly nothing. But we did learn that Jones may secretly be a pyro. We also learned that fire codes in Florida are either lax or not enforced. And we learned what we already knew: far-righters like Jones are addicted to the spotlight, and they don’t care what harm their actions may cause.

But the most important thing we learned is this time the mainstream media were largely willing to ignore Jones’ stunt. And few in and around Jones’ church in Florida seemed to care. All of 30 people (and one book) bothered to show. For this, we say amen.

    Ho hum . He should run for the GOP Presidential nomination if he wants to be taken seriously as a dangerous crackpot.

  2. Doc Bill Says:

    Jones would make a great VP candidate for The Rent’s Too Damn High party.

    You mean he’s not a GOP candidate????? I thought all the real nuts were.
