2nd US Pastor Announces Plans to Burn Koran on September 11th

Rev. Terry Jones plans to burn Korans in Gainesville, Fla.

Rev. Bob Old of Springfield, Tennessee, has announced that he too plans to set fire to a Koran at his home on Saturday, and the post a video of the holy Muslim book burning online.

Old said:

"If they want to have their religion, they can have it somewhere else. I believe that other religions are a threat to our faith and our beliefs. People may say that I am crazy, but I am not.""

Old currently leads an evangelical ministry called Disciples of Christ, but was once the pastor of two Baptist congregations in Tennessee.

Other Tennessee religious leaders have already come forth denouncing his plans. Rev. Larry Herbert of Faith Covenant Church in Springfield said:

"The guy is a nut. This is crazy. I am sorry that anyone who names the name of Christ would do this."

Amir Arain, a spokesman for the Islamic Center of Nashville, about 30 miles from Springfield, said that he hopes Old will change his mind:

"We will pray that God gives him wisdom,"

Old, however, is not the first evangelical minister to announce plans to burn the Koran on the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Rev. Terry Jones is planning to publicly burn Korans in Gainesville, Florida and has attracted international attention and the condemnation of his actions by President Obama and other top figures in the US government, military and religious institutions.


All I can say is 'oh dear'. There will probably be a lot of trouble about this.

1. (Koran 8:12) "Remember Thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the believers, I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, Smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger tips of them."

2. (Koran 2:216) "Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knoweth, you knew not."

3. (Koran 69:30-37) "It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. You desire the lure of this world and Allah desires for you the hereafter and Allah is Mighty, Wise.. Now enjoy what you have won as lawful and good and keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is forgiving, merciful."

4. (Koran 69:30-37) "(It will be said) Take him and fetter him and expose him to hell fire. And then insert him in a chain whereof the length is seventy cubits. Lo! he used not to believe in God the tremendous, and urged not on the feeding of the wretched. Therefore hath he no lover hear this day nor any food save filth which none but sinners eat."

5. (Koran 5: 33-34) "The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet and alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom; Save those who repent before ye overpower them. For know that Allah is forgiving, merciful."

6. (Koran 22: 19-22) "These twain (the believers and the disbelievers) are two opponents who contend concerning their Lord. But as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them, boiling fluid will be poured down their heads. Whereby that which is in their bellies, and their skins too, will be melted; And for them are hooked rods of iron. Whenever, in their anguish, they would go forth from thence they are driven back therein and (it is said unto them): Taste the doom of burning."

31. Koran 9:30 The Jews call 'Uzayr-a son of God', and the Christinas call 'Christ the Son Of God'. That is a saying from their mouth; (In this) they but intimate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah's curse be on them: how they are decluded away from the Truth.

Thank GOD that you have the wisdom and the courage to put the Koran on this article for the world to see. I agree with the burnings and I wish there were more. Islam is NOT a religion it is death to the infidels which they think is US. You may want to go to You Tube and pull up 3 Things About Islam which will also horrify you as to their teachings. All I can say is God Bless the USA.

Thank you carol for posting the many quotes from the book that these pretend Christians say they hate, but seem to be following word for word.....it would have been nice if all these fake followers of Christ would follow their OWN book for once!

What this world needs is no religions at all. Perhaps then people could live in peace with each other. Religions create nothing but hatred towards one another, nothing more. Each religious faith believes their religion is the "only one" the one that everyone should believe and follow. Because that will never happen, useless wars take place.
What a waste of time and lives.

A topic such as this will often bring out the "all religions are the same" moronic comments such as the previous one. The fact is most religions preach tolerence,love and peace,the main exception being islam.Why any non-muslim even considers islam to be a religion is beyond my comprehension. It is a nasty,evil political and legal system/cult,and should be treated as such.

I HOPE he does ...
I KNOW I will!
Have my OWN private burn party. I will document it...
Yes, Burn those foul hate manuals, "Religion of Peace" my arsehole,
look at the reactions from these Hypocritical Fuxs
If they were peaceful, they would just let things be and try to forgive and understand, despite the hate directed at their belief.
That would never happen of course, and it's laughable to even just think about it... understanding, peaceable Muslims, ROFL

I could list pages of Biblical inscriptions that most Christians would find appalling, let alone non-Christians. (Most Christians never really read the Bible, so what do they know?)

The Bible and Koran were written 1500 and 1000 years ago, respectively. We can't pretend to know precisely what the violent passages meant to their authors, but both religions early on were ruthless in slaughtering non-believers.

I find it pretty funny to read here Christians maligning Muslims and elsewhere, vice versa. Such hypocrites are each the kettle calling the cauldron black. Tend to removing the hatred in your own heart before chastising others.

I say we burn it on our own back yards, just as a statement.

I wouldn't want to pay for it and support their cause. So here is a web site where you can print out sections of it.

I don't wish anyone dead, but 3000 people of the US didn't deserve to die either, we should all remember that.

`and throw themselves in while they are at it. religion sucks!

And yet, (I am entry # 7 above)
you jackass liberal muslim fluffers and coquesuckers
(and yes I'm hate-filled. Yeah. I'm not perfect, ok, got a problem??? You sure seem to... and yet when the muhzlihmz burn churches, schools, people, embassies etc you have NOTHING to say do you??? DO YOU??? because THAT is precisely when you all STFU.
you brainwashed liberal scum. I'm not a conservative either, got it??
I vote independently, and I voted Nader just to make a point. I don't care for many of his lib-retarded ass views either it is just FFFFFFF this DUOPOLY , you pieces of garbage who insist I SPOIL elections. well, did I "spoil" it for you this time? HUH??? No, only when it doesn't go your way, then you claim that, you small minded sacks of fecal slime
The fact remains:
I: burn a book to make a POINT not to censor
(I am not burning many many books nor do I advocate it)
the muslim world at large: Craps its pants and proceeds with it's violence as usual.
WHOSE F-ING side are you on, you IDIOTS??? THESE guys want HOLY war on your ass, and it's irrelevant if I burn ANYthing, they want it ANYWAY
and it is your APPEASING and CXCKSUCKING that will bring it on, not my expression of free speech.
GOT IT, MUTHER F'ers????

to have religion is to have faith. to have faith is to have fear. and to let the fear fades is to believe in GOD.
