July 2010, Terry Jones, an American pastor in Florida, announced he planned to burn 200 copies of the Quran on Sept. 11 of that year. In Jones’ warped mind, burning the Quran was a response warranted by the World Trade Center attacks. I am sure that most of my readers recall the disgust they felt with Mr. Jones, and in particular, the shame that our American nation and our Judeo-Christian civilization could produce such a man and such thought. In the weeks and months succeeding his announcement, American politicians – his local mayor, Sec. Gates, Sec. Clinton, Rep. Boehner – Christian leaders both in America and around the world, and Muslim groups all criticized Jones’ planned action. Eventually, he gave into the pressure and canceled the burning.
