While Barack Obama and Sarah Palin have publicly condemned the much publicized burning of Korans planned by Rev. Terry Jones on September 11th, there appears to be another Southern Minister to join into the book burning action, perhaps also looking to get a bit if the publicity as well. Rev. Bob Old of Springfield, Tennessee seems to think setting fire to a Koran at his home seems to be a good idea.
Writing for the Tennessean, Bob Smietana reports:
he Rev. Bob Old of Springfield, Tenn., doesn’t care what they think.
The longtime Baptist minister says the Rev. Terry Jones of the Dove World Center Outreach in Gainesville, Fla., is doing the right thing by burning the Quran. So he’s going to do likewise.
Old plans to set fire to a Quran on Saturday at his home and then post a video of the burning book online. And if he had his way, there would be no Muslims in America.
“If they want to have their religion, they can have it somewhere else,” said Old, former pastor of First Baptist Church in Joelton and Academy Heights Baptist Church in Gallatin, which merged with another church. He no longer has a congregation and instead runs an evangelical ministry called Disciples of Christ.
