Anti-Muslim Pastor Arrested On Way To Planned 9-11 Qur'an Burning

Law enforcement officials in Mulberry, Florida yesterday arrested controversial Florida pastor Terry Jones and his associate Pastor Marvin Sapp as they were driving to a park to burn 2,998 Qur'ans-- one for each victim of the 9-11 terrorist attacks. AP reports that the two men were carrying the Muslim holy books, soaked in kerosene, in a barbecue-style grill in a pickup truck. They were each charged with unlawful conveyance of fuel. In addition Sapp was charged with having no valid registration for his trailer, while Jones was charged with unlawful open carry of a firearm. (See prior related posting.)
