Church To Burn the Quran on September 11

August 13, 2015 by · 107 Comments 

A non-denominational church in Gainesville, Florida, plans to host an “International Burn a Quran Day” on the 9th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks. Aside from commemorating the anniversary of the 9/11 suicide bombing of the World Trade Center, the event is also said to be in protest of what The Dove World Outreach Center calls a religion “of the devil,”

Promotions on the church’s website and Facebook page invites Christians to burn the Muslim holy book at the church grounds 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 earlier this week.

Jones himself has written a book titled “Islam is of the Devil,” and his church sells also coffee mugs and shirts featuring the phrase. They have also launched a YouTube channel to disseminate their churches messages.

The National Association of Evangelicals, the country’s largest umbrella evangelical group, has already issued a statement urging The Dove World Outreach Center to cancel the event, warning it could cause worldwide tension between the two religions.

    ” believe me you don’t wanna focus the attention of 1.570 billion muslim at the usa believe when i say that burning the quran will make us muslim people around the world more determinate and in that moment no one will stop us , go see the studies in europe you will see in recent publication that the islam will dominate at least the half of europe”
    DOMINATE HALF OF EUROPE!?,. And what the hell is this surposed to mean? You don’t dominate shit! You seem to be the first to say how crap other countries are, however you don’t mind fukin living here and taking our goverments money? Your always have to be the best and look down on every other religion but it would be terrible for somebody to do that to you! However, me being a respectful white british dose agree, it is disrespectful to burn the quran, however remember all the hurt Muslims caused by the murdering all those innocent people.. And that was all caused because of some idiots following there faith? There’s NO! Excuse.. It can’t be defended! You hate us for hating you and your faith. But do you really expect us not to?! You believe that as a muslim you deserve and receive more respect?! Well ill tell you from everybody, U DON’T! Its only because people are afraid to be classed as racist. The biggest worry to USA officials is that this cause terrorist attacks and lifes will be put at risk, weLl let him burn the quran. And when you blow our houses up.. You can not stand there and defend urself. Because destroying the quran is NO! Excuse for killing people! And infact would make you scum of the earth. If you crave sooo much to be better and stronger than everybody else. Well WALK away from this, because that’s what make us better!

    This event is nothing but an offer for war to Muslims ,Please don’t let it happen otherwise this could lead to disastrous consequences.Just pray for peace in the world which peter and his followers don’t like.

  4. We dont need to defend anything because the Quran will defend itself. You can just wait and see what’s gonna heppen during the burning! If they at least read it before burning it they will never want to burn, them and their stupid devilish church. Billions of people are muslims in the world, you’re telling me That they are all wrong and this Florida church is right? Do you know that the Government of the US studied islam more than you, and they are pretty much scared of it? They believe in islam as we do, and they are preparing themselves already, open your fucking eyes and see the we are real and we Pwn!! 😉

  5. Rose says:

    I agree that burning the quran is insensitive. I also understand why some Americans want to burn the quran.

    1) On the issue of 911, Americans were generalized in a hatred based action, many innocent people died, including muslems.
    2) The issue of building a mosque at ground zero can be considered incredibly insensitive.
    3) It is not surprising that muslems would be generalized in a hate based action by burning the quran.

    Human nature is what it is and burning a book is just a statement….It wont change the fact the there is hatred.

  6. Mustafa says:

    Ahmed is right, doing such thing is just imbecil lol, i dont really care though. Since this ”terry jones” doesnt know that we have the same God, and almost the same books.

    • Muslimah says:

      I completely agree with you when you say that we have the same God – refering to monotheism. We dont have the same book at all.. the quraan is in its original form, unlike the bible which has many alterations and changes since the original bible hence in todays time we get different versions of the bible (e.g. king james version etc). there is only 1 quraan which is universal, alhumdulillah this is a miracle of our deen 🙂

  7. goodman says:

    The world should be beyond this stage of conflict and violence.
    Try and contribute towards bringing world peace and not violence or hatred.
    One thing to let everyone know. God said He will protect the Holy Quran by himself, so rethink twice this is no joke. Man cannot fight with God.
    Good idea to cancel the plan and make peace. This is what you wanted and now you get it “World Attention” Jones. May God have mercy and bless you. Remember the Prophet (SAW) said treat your enemies nicely even if they do you wrong. Islam simply is PEACE.

  8. Muslimah says:

    Assalamualaikum (May peace and bleesing be upon you)..

    It is my personal opinion that burning the quraan will only raise more questions from non muslims as to what the quraan says.. It is the word of God (Allah SWT) revealed to the Prophet Muhammed (may peace and blessings be upon him) through the angel Gabrial (Jibraeel) more than 1400 years ago. The Prophet (PBUH) was unlettered and illiterate, he lost his father before he was born and his mother passed away during his infancy… The majority of people intending to burn the quraan are christians, little do they know that Mary (Maryam AS)- mother of Jesus (Isa AS) is the only females name that is mentioned in the quraan, infact an entire chapter is dedicated to her… Anything that modern science or even embriology proves today has been mentioned in the quraan 1400 years ago, Surah Alaq refers “Read in the name of thy Lord and CHerisher who created, created man out of a mere clot of blood”… Go ahead, burn the quraan, even if all the quraans of the world are burnt, it is the most memorised book in the world with millions of muslims who have memorised all 848 pages, word for word.. If that is not proof that Islam is the only true religion in the world, we have thousands more proof.. and thats a fact!

    TAKBEER… ALLAHU AKBAR !!!

    That is truly shameless.
    God that they struck their fatuity and others deem too stupid and they are suffering abuse will.
    Moses, Jesus and Muhammad all three are one God and the prophets complement previous religion.
    Orders come in every faith that God’s followers announced a new religion and join more complete.
    Of course, maybe you have never seen such a thing Dstvrattan that is normal.
    Islam is a religion of peace and freedom.
    Quran translation ever to have read your language.
    You know that God’s servants in the qoran itself teaches how to love?
    After a few read the qoran.

  10. Dr Abdul Rani Bin Kamarudin says:

    In the name of Allah most merciful and most gracious,

    The Prophet wrote to both superpowers i.e. the Roman empire and the Persian empire bidding them to submit to one and the only God, whose throne encompass the heavens and the earths and whatever stands between them. The Persian King tore the Prophet’s invitation and his empire was torn to pieces. The Roman Emperor courteously declined the invitation and it stayed intact.
    If President Obama condones the burning, it tantamounts to US citizens condoning the burning as the US President was elected by its people. How differrent then is burning the quran sanctioned by US authorities with the act of the Persian King toring the Quran? Do you agree that the burning of the quran is actually a threat to US national and international security? History has taught that even the combined force of non muslims Kings and with even Church support, Islam can never be beaten.
    Europeans powers had travelled and conquered East and West, but where the the occupants are already of muslims faith, they remain and continue to be mulsims such as Malaysia, Brunei, Borneo and southern Phillipines.
