Florida pastor calls off Quran burning

(CNN) - The pastor of a Florida church says his congregation has decided to call off the burning of the Quran that was to be held Saturday - the ninth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attack on the United States by the al Qaeda terror network.

"We will definitely not burn the Quran," the Rev. Terry Jones told NBC's "Today" on Saturday "Not today, not ever." The burning had been planned for 6 p.m.

Jones arrived in New York late Friday night and was working to set up a meeting with the imam in charge of the Islamic center planned near ground zero. The planned meeting, Jones had said, helped persuade him to halt the burning.

    Let's get it straight here, Terry Jones is a ignorant self indulged moron that feels he's the Christian knight in shining armour. This fool finds means to exploit religion for his own diabolical ego. Even in a chance that a radical Muslim organization got a hold of this idiot, and wanted to be head him. his head so far up his ass they will definitely have hard time finding it!!
