The evangelical Christian famous for burning Qur’an's  hanging effigies of Barack Obama, inciting riots in the Middle East, and denouncing radical Islam at every turn—now works with his two brothers at Fry Guys Gourmet Fries in the food court of a mall in Bradenton, Florida.   

He went on to hold several more Qur’an burnings (he was arrested before he could set fire to a stack of 2,998 of the holy texts in 2013), has received countless death threats, and a $2.2 million bounty was placed on his head by al Qaeda affiliated groups in 2011.

He's not making as many headlines these days. The shopping center is a relatively quiet mall, with both a $1 Plus store and a $5 or Less store. There's a dollar movie theater, a JC Penny, and a Hot Topic.   Jones's french fry stand is right on the corner of the small food court. It was jarring to see him standing there, in a casual blue shirt and jeans, working the fryer and taking orders—I've only ever seen him in a suit. He had the same handlebar mustache as always, but looked skinnier, and seemed relaxed.  

He moved to Bradenton, Jones told me, because Gainesville is a "terrible place" and too liberal. He said his church is nearby, that he has two residences and a barn.  "It's in my nature to start something," he said of his French fry business, which he stared with his two brothers. “It's not in my nature to work for someone." He s hoping to make it a franchise, and isn't worried about whether his fame will affect business. Jones just hopes this will help show that he won’t stop living his life just because he's a wanted man.

"I hope that it's somewhat of an asset," he said, "for people that are tired of what is going on and want to speak out, and want to believe that someone will stand up, and take a chance, and speak out. People can support us by coming out to eat.”Does he worry al Qaeda could come and attack him at the mall?

"I think it's a possibility, sure. I think they could come to my house. You saw what they did there in Paris," he said. "They just went about shooting innocent people in the street, and then of course when they went into that office. So of course, they can be expected to do everything.”

"If you're asking me as an American, then I have no problem with Islam—they are protected under the First Amendment," Jones told me. "I have no problem with them being in the country, building mosques, or evangelizing. I wish they would allow the same thing in Islamic dominated countries. They do not. 

I’ve always said of the Muslim community is that if they're in America, they must honor and obey the Constitution, and not try to institute sharia law, which they often try to do."

According to the Bradenton Herald, the Manatee County Sheriff's Office recently indicated they were unaware of any active threats against Jones. But he remains vigilant."I wouldn't say we are scared, but we definitely are very cautious," he told me. “I am always armed—always. 

And I'm very careful when I travel, when I go to the parking lot at night, and when I go home at night. I think al Qaeda and ISIS, well, it's a proven fact that they mean business. And it looks as though they are after those people on the hit list.

"He said opening the fry stand is a way to express patriotism, a way to show that he's not going to back down, and that he's not going to go into hiding."People know how to get a hold of us," he said. "They know where we're at.”The fry stand stayed fairly busy while I was there (the people who ordered in front of me got chicken wings). 

I asked an older couple eating fries if they knew who was making their food.Bob Koons and his wife, Jenny, from Bradenton, said that yes, they absolutely knew who Jones was, and supported him "150 percent.""I have a gun," Koons said. "I think it's about time Americans stood up for something."Were they worried about the possibility of a terrorist attack in the mall? No, Jenny Koons said. You have to live your life."An attack is always possible," she told me. "You can't dwell on that type of stuff. What am I going to do? Hide in my house?


Pastor Terry Jones, who suffers from Cranial-Rectal Dyslexia (commonly called shit for brains) has tried again, and failed, to burn Qur’an’s  authorities say. 

Florida's gift from "The Academy of False Prophets" has once again made headlines. The most outspoken enemy of Muslins, the Qur’an and non legitimate pastor from Gainesville, Fla., was arrested Wednesday in the Polk County town of Mulberry with a truck full of kerosene-soaked copies of the Muslim holy book, cops said. 

His credentials are suspect as they were from a non-accredited religious school which is not even a school.   Suspect he was ordained because he sent in the two Kellogg's box tops and a mail postal money order for 39.95 as required.    And he did answer the long and arduous one question test.  "What was Jesus's second name"?  He aced it!  Police found 2,998 Korans — one for every 9/11 victim.


Cops said they cuffed Jones and his associate pastor, Marvin Sapp, (how fitting, his last name explains a lot)  around 5 p.m., as the men were about to start the blaze. Each faces a felony charge of unlawful conveyance of fuel. Jones was also charged with unlawful open-carry of a firearm.  

Jones, 61, was arrested on felony charges after a traffic stop near a pharmacy in Mulberry, a small town in Polk County, just before 5 p.m. He faces charges of unlawfully transporting fuel and openly carrying a firearm.

Deputies said Jones was riding in a pickup truck that was towing a smoker and trailer filled with kerosene-soaked Qurans. He also had extra bottles of kerosene inside the truck bed.  Sapp's pickup truck was seized. He also was charged with unlawfully transporting fuel and was cited for improper lighting on the trailer.

"My detectives had many conversations with Terry Jones prior to today," Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said Wednesday. "He was told he was welcome to come to Polk County and express his First Amendment rights. However, if he violated the law, he would absolutely be arrested and placed in the county jail.  In April, he organized a Sanford event in support of George Zimmerman, the man acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.


And is in the news again. And he has competition from another scumbag on the West Coast whose work he has endorsed.  A Christian Coptic group led by a known hate monger of Muslims produced the movie that partially triggered the Arab Spring into the Arab Winter.

The US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack. The Libyan official said the US ambassador had been on his way to a safer venue after protesters attacked the US Consulate in Benghazi and opened fire, killing a staff member, in protest at a US film that they deemed blasphemous to the Prophet Mohammad.  The official said the ambassador and three other staff were killed when gunmen fired rockets at his car. 

Gunmen assaulted the Benghazi compound on Tuesday evening, clashing with Libyan security forces, who withdrew under heavy fire. The attackers fired at the buildings while others threw handmade bombs into the compound, setting off small explosions. Small fires were burning around the compound. Adding heavy mortars and RPG's by the gunman signaled the attack was not random but a well executed plan to kill the Ambassador.  This wasn't the ARAB spring, this was murder.  THE FILM-  By Sam Bacile, an American citizen who said he produced, directed and wrote the two-hour film, said he had not anticipated such a furious reaction.  

Raymond IV, Count of Toulouse must be reincarnated as Terry Jones - the man who wants to re-start the Crusades. Terry Jones, past graduate of the Jim Jones Peyote and Kool-Aid Theological Seminary, threatened to start the Crusades all over again by burning as many as two hundred Qur'an's (the Muslim Holy Book) on his bank owned property in Gainesville, Florida.  At the last moment he called it off.

Nevertheless the rumors and the publicity alone have resulted in several deaths in the Afghanistan region. Most of you by now know the story. Too pathetic to repeat so we dismissed it.  Then, like a bad dream, he rose from the ashes and actually carried it out and the results have been horrendous. 

The planned and scripted American version of Adolf Hitlers theology took his merry band of homophobic and Muslim haters to a new low with a staged mock trial complete with a cast of characters that easily outdo anything the World Wide Wrestling has thrown at you... that bad. 

Sheiks, midgets, shill Imams, women in islamic garb, the whole package.  And the jurors were all well qualified during their "voir dire". 

Bottom line he is using the "God made me do it clause",  thats the one many religionist fanatics use. For that gesture alone, he is a recipient of the ALFRED E. NEUMAN Award of EXCELLENCE with two gold clusters for being a double cluster flaming frickin religious zealot moronic idiot. (Ed:  Al, tell us how you really feel)

He is also the author of a non-best seller, “Islam is of the Devil" and claims to be motivated, inspired and called by God as he toys with the world's leaders and media.  This written endeavor (questionable), which amplifies parts of the Qur’an, condemns many of the passages.  Based on previous writers against the Qur’an it is amazing he still has his head or any other of his body parts especially his tongue.

The Qur’an means literally “the recitation”, is the central religious text of Islam, also sometimes transliterated as Quran, Kuran, Koran, Qurān, or al - Qur’ān.  Its scriptural status among a world-spanning religious community, and its major place within world literature generally, has led to a great deal of secondary literature on the Quran. 

Quranic chapters are called suras and verses are called ayahs. Devout Muslims believe the Qur’an to be the verbal book of divine guidance and direction for mankind. Muslims also consider the original Arabic verbal text to be the final revelation of God.

We were not able to ascertain by checking phone records to see if Terry Jones had really received a call from GOD.  It is well known that Pat Robertson, area code 757 also receives calls from God in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Both Pastor Robertson and Fake Doctor Mike Murdock frequently speak with God, whose area code is 0000*, the eternal beginning of the numerical verification. 

We could not find the message to Mr. Jones to burn the Qur’ans. However we did notice some calls from area code 666, which is down south somewhere and we tried but we had call blocking first,and then a message about overheated circuits.

There were several phone calls from country code 1-93 which is Afghanistan asking him to have a Book-Signing and Celebrity Roast in Kabul. They promised thousands of supporters and he’ll get a rousing, highly stimulated, very, very, warm welcome.  In honor of the pastor they even selected Olive Oil for the roast instead of the lesser priced vegetable oil.  Olive oil gets hotter faster and burns.  Already many of the dignitaries of the world have been calling for tickets to this really hot event.  

He left Germany in a hurry. It appears his former church wanted to make bratwurst sausage out of him for stealing money and using the donations for himself, pretending to be God,  after brainwashing his converts into believing in him as the Jesus Fuhrer and selling personal property and goods for his cause. As brain dead as this crew was, they did wake up and ousted him.  

Literally, he is and was the cause of his own "quick return" to the states where he found another small group of insufficiently smart people called "religionists" and wackos he could call home. He seemed to fit right in. He was smart, they were dumb. He had charisma, they had no self esteem nor cranial function.

A large prefab steel barn looking church called the Dove World Outreach Center of Gainesville, the one with the rocks through the glass cross out front and the media trucks abound, is the home to this demented former pastor with questionable credentials.   You have to be really bad when the Germans don’t want you. They have a lot of tolerance.  Regretfully, he wound up in Gainesville where he started attacks on Gays and now Muslims. Gainesville would like to see him leave. His prayer was answered. 

He says his current bank found out they were financing a nut after his gay attacks, and wants his church to pay what it is owed for the property and building.  That’s called in banking terms, “calling in the loan”.  

You see Terry, I refuse to call this man, a man of God,  it’s called “paying back the bank”. So naturally, like many of the other fake false prophets and crooks, he turns to the flock out there who are as flocked up as he is.  It turns this whole thing into profits. His product…God. He sells God for himself. That’s a no-no in the Commandments and God has called in his credit card.

We call it smart, possibly the bank noticed somehow having a Pastor, an Associate Pastor and wives wearing .40 caliber pistols on their belts. This is not God-like, really doesn’t make a nice picture of belief, more like paranoiac fear.  Those death threats they got should not affect strong men and women of God since they will get to meet their maker sooner.  This crew might have a temporary stay, with a stopover in purgatory. A long, long, one hopefully.

He also says he has 200 Korans and he wants to buy more. You send him, and the fifty nuts in his congregation, money and any spare Qur’an's if you have one on the mantle. If I were Terry, I would be asking the Associate Pastor, another goofball, to open the packages they get. I'd be afraid to. 

Maybe his friends in the Muslim world might send him some Kabul-KaBoom. The strain on the overtime for the Gainesville Police, Sheriffs Department and Highway Patrol has to be mounting. Then he got caught by eBay.  Minor problem, it seems the donations to his church got sold on eBay and were not used for the poor.   Florida authorities discovered that he was running a for-profit eBay enterprise and the state wants to get paid for sales taxes.

GOD refused an interview,  he was busy finding a few converts as he usually does referred us to Mr. Lucifer Mephistopheles, the God Of Chaos, LTC, ESQ., for comment.  The POPE was right, this jerk needed a pro. The POPE felt anyone who could create this kind of chaos needed an established deity.  The project and interview  went to Hell and Mr. Mephistopheles as happy to see us and greeted us warmly, very warmly.  

"Call me Lucifer or Loo for short and commented, he's looking forward to it, he'll take the case officially after he see's the corpse".  He did say, “ He's my kind of guy" but, "I'll have my eye on him". "Once a scumbag always a scumbag". He also commented,  “That Terry had reminded  him of another scumbag who tried to sell fake air conditioners to him.   Of Terry," he said he has great ideas".

Lucifer said, "Like my great plan, the Third Reich, the Terry Jones plan for starting the Crusades is not new.  Find someone, a group and stir the masses. His motive is greed. He looked for new turf, found a haven in Gainesville and he restarted his career as a zealot".  

"Using the time proven Goebbels form of communication, tell a lie, tell it loud, tell it often", Jones has figured out the magic formula to get every other zealot ball sack nut job in the world to send him money. His delusions raised almost $15,000 dollars.  Lots of nut sacks walking around just looking for a good hate cause.

He, a nobody, is on every TV, radio, newspaper and web site and pleading for fresh funds for the cause, his cause.  There are quite a few who exhibit “the DNA of the flaming idiot gene” which has years waited for their Messiah to appear. Want blame? 

Blame the media for fanning this idiot into top page fame. Like the dung beetles on elephant notations, they swarmed in numbers.  In the business this is called a scrum. 

My prediction is the publicity that has aroused his cause, mis-used in the name of nationalism, his convoluted reformation of who we are, will make him the poster boy or he will become the leader of the dangerous super activist Aryan right. 

The First Amendment of the US Constitution protects Jones' right to say and do what he wants. Jones has the right to burn Korans even in the face of the world’s Presidents, celebrities, and dignitary’s dire warnings. Jones will provide the trigger for a Muslim outpouring of hate and seething anger towards American soldiers and our efforts throughout the world to repair, the damages of years of war between cultures.

The mere thoughts of burning the Holy Book have inspired a promised total carnage of any Christian Churches in Bagdad and it is believable.  You take those nuts seriously. Christians will not be safe in many Muslim countries. This is one dumb act that will put efforts back ten years. There is a time when you say screw the Constitution, this man is a terrorist and treat him as such. He is the American Taliban.

Two weeks ago no one knew who Terry Jones' racist, unimportant group of cultists or his race, hate and anti-Christ filled church was. Thank the press for the 24/7 publicity and the pictures already floating through the internet-sphere and provoking riots before anything even happened. Oh, and thank CNN in particular for providing the aircraft and transportation for the anti-Christ to confront the Imam in NY on 9/11 and really screw the whole world up. Read on and remember the names.


The Rev. Terry Jones, the Florida pastor who has garnered worldwide attention for his plan earlier this week to burn Qurans on September 11, arrived in New York late Friday night, according to footage provided by CNN affiliate WABC.

"I don't have anything to say right now," he told a group of reporters who followed him out of LaGuardia Airport and to a taxi-cab.  K.A. Paul, an evangelist in contact with the Rev. Terry Jones, said Friday there will be no burning of the book Saturday evening, as had been originally planned.

Jones has said he was scheduled to travel to New York City on Friday night for a still-unscheduled meeting with the imam in charge of the New York Islamic center planned near ground zero. The planned meeting, Jones had said, helped persuade him to halt the planned burning.  Earlier Friday, Jones gave mixed messages about whether he intends to carry out his plans, which have sparked international controversy.

A meeting may happen Monday or Tuesday, (when it snows in summer and pigs request landing instructions at La Guardia")   between the Imam in charge of the proposed Islamic community center and mosque near ground zero and Jones. (Why would the Imam Lower himself) to talk to a man who threatened him him with a book-burning. PS: Never Happened. 

I'm not hearing much about the supposed meeting between Terry Jones and the Imam. In fact I'm not hearing anything about him at all unless CNN told him the ticket to the chartered flight to NY was one way and he would have to hitch-hike home. PS: It never happened.

City fathers are trying to collect an an estimated 200,000+ dollars in Police, Fire Department, Highway Patrol, they show you pay, and other cities services costs because of this religious screwball (pretends to be religious) nutcase. 

Terry Jones, said the costs would essentially bankrupt his 50-member church, the Dove World Outreach Center, the DWOC.  Also known around Gainesville as the Demented Worshippers of Christ. "That would be impossible for us to pay," Jones said. "That would bankrupt us, of course." 

Jones, 58, vowed to fight the security bill in court and said he plans to move his church to Tampa because of what he called a lack of support in Gainesville. Lack of support? You want to start the Crusades over again and you have a lack of support?  Listen schmuck, you play with fire,  you get burned.

The Gainesville Police Department and the Alachua County Sheriff's Office alone are estimated at $180,000, according to a police spokeswoman. And that figure will rise when costs are added from the Gainesville fire and public works departments. "The city manager has made it clear that he will provide a full accounting of our expenses to the Dove World Outreach Center."

Law enforcement agencies spent more than a month working on security plans and Jones also told authorities he received numerous death threats because of the planned protest. "We have 286 sworn officers and almost every one was working, either at the Dove Center or at other soft targets as the church is located in a very large residential community.


It seems Terry Jones, the Gainesville pastor owns a condo  in a building along the Treasure Island Causeway.  Property records list the minister and his wife Sylvia as the owners of a unit in Paradise Island Towers, an 11-story building on Paradise Blvd.  The condo was apparently bought by Jones in 1991, according to records the Pinellas County Property Appraiser's Office. The sale price is listed as $73,500.  Along with Terry Jones, ownership transferred to Terry Jones and Sylvia Jones in 1999 with a token purchase price listed at $100.  

The current market value of the 1,025 square foot condo is listed by the Property Appraiser's Office as $124,152. The mailing address for the couple in that record is in Gainesville, Florida and in care of "DOVE WORLD OUTREACH CTR.  I'm sure the owners and neighbors of the Pastor and his gun toting wife will be happy to see them move in. There goes the neighborhood and property values. they'll love the press corps hanging around every time this idiot goes off.


"Today he announced he was thinking of moving his "quasi" church of brainwashed thinking imbeciles to Tampa.  As a test he will be performing his hatred act in the Tampa Convention Center on a Sunday Evening.  He is seeing if the climate in Tampa suits his version of Christianity which is different from the mainstream.  Thats because it exists only in his mind.  Calls to local noted religious officials, groups and church hierarchy such as the Southern Baptist Council and some Pentecostal groups deny any association with him and one Reverend remarked, "Sounds like he reinvented his Jesus".  

My friends and pseudo-pastors also offered help to him in the form of mental health "re-alignment" via the Ted Williams Louisville Slugger method and many suggested he go on a retreat.  Suggested was the African desert, the South Pole, Bagdad or Tehran. 

Four weeks ago he was plastered all over the Internet and going to NY to solve the Ground Zero Mosque problem. The pastor's plan to publicly burn copies of the Koran, had gone major news. Using that publicity and $15,000 dollars he got in donation from fellow Super Christian Right Wing Conservative Aryan Imbeciles, he decided to hold a rally in a bigger city, at a bigger venue.

Pastor Jones went to the  convention ballroom to accommodate at least 500 supporters for the "Stand Up For America" rally on Sunday. That was Sunday, October 10, at 7:30pm, Tampa Convention Center (Ballroom D), 333 South Franklin Street, Tampa, FL 33602.  He even hired off-duty policemen for ample security. Security wasn't necessary, it turns out. Neither was the ballroom. About 490 of the 500 did not show up. 

This is the home of the Central Command, with many Muslim soldiers shedding their blood for our side, and their families, a good-sized local Muslim community and Tampa has a strong friendly multi-cultural history. It's been years since anyone burned anything except barbecue in their back yard. 

The first amendment guarantees "Freedom of Speech", certainly not "Freedom of Stupidity".  Your distorted version of religion is not welcome here, and frankly neither are you. You are a reminder of the days of the white sheets and racial hatred, the book burnings by the NAZI's and the Dr. Goebbels mentality. Get the message, TERRY JONES go away. You came to Tampa, once is enough. Your scheme failed as it should. You failed.

Terry Jones has risen from the ashes of the landfill life he leads and did the unthinkable. He did burn a Quran in his church near Gainsville Florida.  He reminds me of the last book burnings, the work of one Adolf Hitler who does bear a slight resemblance to the pastor.  Don't worry, when they meet in hell, they'll have name tags.

The guru of international tension  oversaw the burning of the Islamic holy book on Sunday after it was found "guilty" during a "trial" at his church. The pastor acted as a judge in a mock trial that ended with burning a Quran on Sunday at his Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla.

"We had a court process," said Pastor Terry Jones, who acted as judge, in a phone interview. "We tried to set it up as fair as possible, which you can imagine, of course, is very difficult."  Another post on the site's blog showed an image of a burning book and read, "The event is over, the Koran was found guilty and a copy was burned inside the building.”

Jones had been well warned about the potentially lethal repercussions to U.S. and international forces in the Middle East if he did burn the Islamic holy scriptures. And then he did it anyway, with a reporter from Agence France-Presse present whose story went world wide. 

Reaction traveled below the radar initially, until the photos of a burning book turned up on Jone's Dove World Outreach Center web site -- a site that gave a church of 30 people a worldwide presence as an online provocateur.


On Friday, 12 people were killed in an attack on a U.N. compound in northern Afghanistan that followed a demonstration against the burning of the Quran.  The fatalities comprised seven U.N. workers and five demonstrators, officials said. Another 24 people were wounded, said Abdul Rauof Taj, security director of Balkh province. 

Lal Mohammad Ahmadzai, a spokesman for the police in Mazar-e-Sharif, told reporters that a number of suspects "who might be the main organizers" had been arrested.  U.N. Peacekeeping Director Alain Le Roy said the seven U.N. fatalities were international staffers -- three civilians and four international security guards. No Afghan U.N. staff members were among the dead, he said.  "I understand there were hundreds, if not thousands, of demonstrators. Some of them were clearly armed and they stormed into the building,”  Five demonstrators were killed in the violence; one person's throat was cut, he said. 

On CNN's John King USA show Friday night King said he had a "lengthy interview" with Pastor Terry Jones, But viewers will never see King's interview.  Describing the tape, King says he reminded Jones that this fall -- after international, interfaith outcry over Jones' plans to burn a Quran on the anniversary of 9/11 -- the pastor told King he would "never burn the Quran."

After long discussion within CNN, King told viewers, the interview would not be shown, even though, King says, he "pushed back hard" at Jones' anti-Islamic remarks. I think this is a different situation than the decision to post coverage of the Quran burning when it happened, something I brought up in an earlier post. That news was already loose in the world and not telling Americans about it, wouldn't bring it back. Silence would also mean shutting off any opportunity to speak up as they did in September to denounce Jones. They need to deport this schmuck….might I suggest Saudi Arabia or Iran…

Death Threats

Since July 2009, Jones and his church have received hundreds of death threats by phone and mail, while some have been published on websites overseas. In March 2011 it was reported that Jamaat-ud-Dawah, a radical Islamist group in Pakistan, issued a US $2.2 million fatwa calling for the death of Jones.  Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula featured Jones on a 'Wanted Dead' poster in its tenth edition of Inspire Magazine in March 2013.  

In April 2013, Jones announced plans for a Qu'ran burning event to be held on September 11, 2013. In Iran, Pakistan, and at an Interfaith Conference in Vienna there have been calls for the United States government to stop this event.  Army General Lloyd Austin III, commander of US Central Command called Jones on September 9, 2013, to ask him cancel the event, however Jones declined. Police arrested Jones on September 11, 2013, before he could burn 2,998 Koran’s soaked with kerosene at a park in Polk County, Florida. He was charged with unlawfully conveying fuel and openly carrying a firearm.


  • For the US authorities to arrest Terry Jones it is a good thing that he is a Christian pastor. He is still, protected under the law.  If he had been in an Islam country this quasi self defined imbecile holy man would roasted alive.

  • How interesting it is that the bible (and churches) are not given the same protection in Islamic countries as the Koran is in the US, even at the expense of the constitution.
  • Driving around in a truck with 3,000 books soaked in kerosene isn't "exercising your freedom of speech," it's recklessly endangering the lives of other motorists. If he wants to just publicly burn a Koran, he can. He's done it before, plenty of times. 

  • Fred from Georgia wrote : This is good news. The Koran should not be burned. It makes excellent toilet paper.

  • Rich from S.C:    With or without the kerosene?  Make sure you light it first then pour the kerosene directly, hopefully some will get on your clothes.

  • Please stop saying this jerk is from Gainesville. We ran him out of town. I don't know where he's from, but it isn't here. We're a good community with respect for all peoples and religions. The 8th largest university in the USA is right here in Gainesville, and we are the cultural hub of north central Florida. Please stop associating this guy with us. We don’t claim him or his brand of hate as ours.
