Pastor Terry Jones arrested with Kerosine-soaked Korans

Terry JonesFlorida pastor Terry Jones was arrested Wednesday evening while transporting materials to hold a Koran-burning ceremony.

Jones was arrested on an unspecified felony charge, which has been reported as “transporting hazardous materials,” after he was pulled over in Polk County with nearly 3,000 kerosene-soaked copies of the Koran in the bed of his pickup truck, which was towing a barbecue grill.

“We originally met this afternoon” at a McDonald’s, Stephanie Sapp, a member of Jones’ organization Stand Up America, told The Daily Caller.

“At about 4:25 we left to go to the park. As we pulled onto the main highway, several unmarked cars pulled up. They pulled us over. They asked both [the driver] and Dr. Jones to get out the truck, which they did. They asked if they were armed, which they legally were, they both had concealed weapons permits. They asked them to give up the weapons, which they did, then they handcuffed them and arrested them,” Sapp said.

“They were told that because they had kerosene and a grill, that was illegal. We don’t know at this point what the charge is. They have not yet been booked into jail,” Sapp said.

“My husband Wayne was the driver. Dr. Jones was the passenger. They both were arrested, even though the truck was registered to [Wayne],” Sapp said. “They arrested both of them.”

“I’ve heard that” a complaint was called in earlier in the day about Jones’ planned activities, Sapp said, but she could not definitively confirm that to be the case. “Some media were milling around earlier” outside the group’s meeting, Sapp said.

Jones announced plans on his website to burn 2,998 Korans on September 11, to commemorate the twelfth anniversary of terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.

Burning Korans is not going to get to heaven. so you burn them and many lunatic muslims will protest against all western infidals. but they bomb mosques mind you and they don’t seem to protest that. isn’t that a place for worship..

    GRAIN FED SELF RIGHTOUS CRACKER REDNECK WANNA BE SELF PROFESSED CHRISTIAN WITH NOTHING TO SHOW FOR HIS MINISTRY EXCEPT FOR HIS LOVE FOR BEING IN THE NEWS FOR SOWING SEEDS OF COUNTER PRODUCTIVE HATE.

      Youre a good man geo and ive read your a follower of christ(which makes your description of this individual more accurate than others). As a muslim i do condem this act and i don’t condone protests. The police did what they thought is best within their power. The quran has been memorised from from front cover to back cover and burning them wont prove nothing as you stated above.

      • reasonable,
        If you shine a flash lite on a very dark night what ever stands in front of it glows and becomes revealed! this man does not reflect humility or a peaceful demeanor as he should being a follower of jesus , being a pastor only amplifies and reveals who he is as a weak man with no self esteem, you are right there is only so much the police can do …..too bad being stupid isn’t painfull lol.

        • Reasonableman

          LOL don’t you worry the pain of stupidness does catch up to people in some part of their life. As the saying goes you reap what you sow.

        Lots of movies and stories about the concept of ‘book-burning’ … and many have tried it … no-one yet has managed to eliminate all the thoughts. This idiot Jones sure won’t.

        Although I love reading, I never felt that memorizing anything ‘front cover to back cover’ was a great idea … left no room for anything else. Better to get the basic concept in, and go on to something else after. If the basic concept of the book didn’t work, I could leave it on a shelf.

        Jones plays it up for ‘the press’ … just like all terrorists.
        They could have had a ‘private bonfire’ and roasted marshmallows.

        • Reasonableman

          LMAOO roasted marshmellows i swear i love ya. I was thinking it, you said it.

        • You are right 5th! he is playing it up for the press otherwise he can copy the koran in microsoft word a thousand times and feel phsycologicaly superior everytime he hits delete :)P

      • Sandy Reis

        Do you condemn it when muslims attack holy sites of other faiths, and burn other people holy books? Because we all know its very rare for anybody to burn a koran yet muslims do this all the time and attack churches, temples, etc. worldwide

        • Hi I’m Kentucky.

          No sandy reis, get your facts straight before looking stupid. In Islam, us peaceful Muslims are taught to LOVE everybody, and NEVER burn the other religious books. The Bible and Torah (jewish book) are to be respected in our faith; also they were holy books sent down from God, you twat.

          Also, I want to throw another set of researched info at your head. It’s not just a MINORITY of Muslims, there are some Christians, Hindus, and other religions who have been terrorising Islam. Does the news ever teach you. Oh no – I forgot, the media covers all the innocence of Islam, and instead brainwashes all you faggots. Happy? Or should I explain myself more? Do you realise how much the media hates Islam, and you know what the consequences are/effect that has? Well there you go.

  • Jan Bowman

    At least someone is standing up to the muslims; giving them a taste of their own medicine. Good on him. He has my full support!!!

    • Hannibal

      Being a pastor he should have read what Jesus said:

      “… Do not set yourself against the man who wrongs you. If someone slaps you on the right cheek, turn and offer him your left. If a man wants to sue you for your shirt, let him have your coat as well… Love your enemies; do good to those who hate you; bless those who curse you; pray for those who treat you spitefully.”

      • Sandy Reis

        Thats one Bible part I dont agree with. Some enemies need revenge and a Crusade or else we will never get rid of them.

        • Hannibal

          That is your right to react… BUT REMEMBER IT IS NOT what Jesus said. Simple really!

          • Guest

            Thats why I dont follow it. I only follow what Jesus said. The rest I follow if I want to and when I want to.

          • Sandy Reis

            That passage comes from the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew five. Jesus’ audience is important when reading the sermon. Jesus was speaking to His disciples (not just the 12, but a great many followers), and they were the Jewish people (see Matt. 5:1). This sermon is for believers, explaining the character of a follower of Jesus, and what we are meant to do as Christ followers. I just dont agree with it.

          • Sandy you are a very honest straight shooter but may I ask why you don’t agree with it?

          • Sandy Reis

            I think there are times when there are exceptions.
            I don’t follow the Bible or any other religious scripture literally.
            I understand it. I just don’t agree with it all the time.

          • Hi I’m Kentucky.

            sandy fu.cked up shi.tty reis, some people fight against bombing – thing is you are the only exception.

      You call this standing up to Muslims. Lol. Not surprised you support this redneck. After reading your tasteless posts, it wouldn’t surprise me if in fact you are these piece of S@%t.

    • Jan,
      the pastor does Not represent me or my views as a Christian, just as muslim terrorists DO NOT represent all muslims or their views…..I know you are upset and need a hug but refine your thinking you will feel a lot better.
      ask any muslim victims of terrorism or suicide bombing if they like terrorists anymore than you do, THEY DONT, they are not the enemy, they are just like you and me trying to get through life!

      • 5thDrawer

        Jan needs something other than a hug ….

    Jones is no different than the islamist who burn churches and destroy them in Egypt,Syria,Somalia!
    They are all the same to me with one little difference.Jones is one,the islamists like him are countless!!

    • Sandy Reis

      This is exactly what I was thinking. Muslims react hurt yet they do this to other people all the time.

      No. Muslims ones always see themselves and innocent and dont like a taste of their own medicine. Others become fanatical after they have been attacked for so long and they have tried all other appeasement options.

      • Hi I’m Kentucky.

        @ s r : It’s not just Muslims, stop targetting them, you sad minded piece of shiit. Every religion has a person who does that. Like there are a few brainwashed jerks in the world, you are one of them dog.

    WELL… THEY’RE PROBABLY UNUSABLE AFTER A GOOD KEROSENE SOAKING, ANYWAY.

      Naah just a wash with water needed. It’s still readable due to the ink they use.
