A nondenominational church in Gainesville, FL, plans to host an "International Burn a Quran Day" on the ninth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks.
The Dove World Outreach Center says it is hosting the event to remember 9/11 victims and take a stand against Islam. With promotions on its website and Facebook page, it invites Christians to burn the Muslim holy book at the church 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
"I mean ask yourself, have you ever really seen a really happy Muslim? As they're on the way to Mecca? As they gather together in the mosque on the floor? Does it look like a real religion of joy?"
"No, to me it looks like a religion of the devil."

Nope it's hate. i also dont consider Rev Wright church Christian, and my Mormon cousin thinks that those cult Mormons are NUTS. I dont believe religious or spiritual texts should be burned. Thats just awful. :(
