Homophobic Church Leads Koran Burning

Jonesx390_4

The church leading the charge to burn Korans on September 11 was the same church that targeted its city's new mayor with a homophobic sign.

The Reverend Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla., said members of his congregation are determined to burn copies of the Koran despite reportedly receiving more than 100 death threats, the Associated Press reports.

To counter the move, Mayor Craig Lowe has declared September 11 Interfaith Solidarity Day in Gainesville. He was targeted earlier this year by the church with a sign reading "No Homo Mayor."
