Church plans Quran-burning event

In protest of what it calls a religion "of the devil," a nondenominational church in Gainesville, Florida, plans to host an "International Burn a Quran Day" on the ninth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks.

The Dove World Outreach Center says it is hosting the event to remember 9/11 victims and take a stand against Islam. With promotions on its website and Facebook page, it invites Christians to burn the Muslim holy book at the church from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

"We believe that Islam is of the devil, that it's causing billions of people to go to hell, it is a deceptive religion, it is a violent religion and that is proven many, many times," Pastor Terry Jones told CNN's Rick Sanchez earlier this week.

    My suggestion would be to use a colored base to really make the shadows pop and to take advantage of the undertones in the shadows. ,Wholesale Mac Makeup

    Women's shoes for women are an integral part of the dressing room. Almost every woman has in her closet a few pairs of shoes. There may be, of course, shoes and only one destination. I am sure that in every woman's wardrobe will be starting evening shoes, sports winter.
    Do women agree with me:)

    Hi all users of this forum. In particular, the administrator, whom I know personally and warm memories.

    I knew about this forum for a long time, but works on other forums.
