Update on an Idiot

How this slipped by me, I will never know. I blame myself and my laziness.

It appears that the Pastor of the Gainesvile, Florida Dove World Outreach Center, Terry Jones (pictured above blowing up an invisible balloon), was arrested in early August on charges of child pornography. You might remember that this is the group hosting the Quran book burning on this upcoming September 11th.

I urge police to be present at the burning to ensure he’s not throwing any evidence under the Qurans.

As my wife said, “Maybe there really are people in this world who are just evil.”

Special thanks to the internet, for being the greatest information tool the world has ever known. In another era, this guy’s crimes would have flown under the radar, but thankfully privacy is now a myth, and there’s nowhere for society’s scum to hide anymore (not even behind religiously righteous indignation).

[UPDATE: This story is probably a slanderous falsehood that is too good to be true. Perhaps the real story is: insult Muslims, be accused of child pornography...]


  1. Wow..... I think that I concur with your wife. Unreal.

  2. Are we sure this report is accurate? NBC seems to be the only one covering it, and it is actually just a link to a topix coversation. It's surprising no one else covered it, since we've heard about "Burn a Koran Day" on a number of the major news networks.

    It's been posted on a number of blogs and other forums that appear to be pro-Islam, but its not clear where the report originated from. I suspect this is fake, but it's hard to tell.

  3. Christians never let the truth get in the way of a great story...

    I, too, have my doubts. I'll keep digging.

  4. Looks like NBC may have a libel case on their hands...
