Florida Pastor screams FIRE! in crowded theatre to sell coffee mugs.

Another chapter for the "Who could have seen that coming?" book.  An evangelical Christian pastor from Florida burns a Koran to promote internet sales of his "Islam is of the Devil" coffee mugs and T-shirts.  And then right on schedule on the other side of the world, on a Friday after Mosque services, a mob of angry Muslims vents their anger by going on a killing rampage.  Afghans Avenge Florida Koran Burning, Killing 12

Last year when the same guy, Terry Jones from Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville threatened to burn a Koran, many people including General David H. Petraeus asked him to refrain, knowing that this sort of provocation would put US forces and civilians in Afghanistan and elsewhere at higher risk of being attacked in retaliation.  Today with the mass murder at the UN facility in Afghanistan by a mob of frenzied  Muslims who had just left Friday Mosque services, those fears were confirmed.  The 20,000 Afghan rioters initially set out looking for Americans to kill, but because none were close by they attacked the UN facility instead.  Four Nepalese, a Swede, a Norwegian, and a Romanian along with four Afghan protesters were killed in the melee.

And I'm sure Terry Jones won't feel a bit bad about the pile of dead bodies in his wake. Here is a quote from another paster at the church in response to the violence.   Seems Terry Jones is laying low today..
"..In Florida, Wayne Sapp, a pastor at the church, called the events "tragic," but said he did not regret the actions of his church.
"I in no way feel like our church is responsible for what happened," Sapp said in a telephone interview on Friday."
So what did this bunch of alleged Christians in Florida accomplish with the mock trial and execution of the Koran? Seems to me they did it to bring lots of media attention to themselves so they could sell their offensive hate merchandise. They gave radical Islamists some outstanding "bulletin board" material to incite violence and retribution in the Friday services. And they helped recruit more terrorists in the campaign to kill Americans and their allies.

They certainly didn't burn the Koran to help spread the message of Jesus from the Gospels. That would be the absolute furthest thing from their intentions. If Jesus himself walked into their Church and recited the beattitudes from the Gospels, they'd probably call him a anti-American smelly hippie liberal do-gooder and throw him out so they could get back to wallowing around in their hate.
