Top Ten Reasons ‘Burn a Qur’an Day’ is Anti-Biblical

The Dove World Outreach Center, a non-denominational church in Gainesville, Florida, announced in July that it would host a Qur’an burning event on its church property in observance of the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks “to warn Americans about the dangers of Islam.”

While the church’s pastor, Terry Jones, may not burn Qur’ans after all, Fred “God Hates Fags” Phelps is promising to do so if Jones is a “sissy” and doesn’t.

Also, another character is promising to burn Qur’ans on the Wyoming Capitol steps. (The crazy meter is spiking!)

So, I have in my right hand, direct from my home office in Corn Borer, Indiana, today’s category:
