    Florida pastor says he's 'rethinking" canceled Quran burning

    (CNN) -- A Florida pastor who called off a Quran burning said late Thursday he was "rethinking our position" after a Muslim leader said the minister incorrectly announced that the proposed Islamic center near New York's ground zero would be moved as part of a deal.

    The dramatic development was one of several twists on a day when President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Robert Gates urged the Rev. Terry Jones to call off the Saturday event, timed for the ninth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

    During the afternoon, Jones canceled his plan to burn copies of the Quran, based on what he said were assurances from a local Muslim leader that the Islamic center in New York would be moved -- an assertion rejected by the center's visionary in New York.

    Jones, leader of the Gainesville, Florida-based Dove World Outreach Center, announced he will travel Saturday to New York to meet with the religious leader behind the planned center, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, about a new location.

    Sounds like he was using the Quran burning as a scheme to get the Islamic Center to pick up and move and it didn't work.

    For real it took people this long to figure it out? I may just call CNN tomorrow and say I am burning a Bible and Quran together in the same trash can. The country may just explode from outrage.

    Seems to me he felt hoodwinked and went back to Plan A.

    And I suppose given the Islamic propensity to launch into a deranged and screeching psycho-rage over anything which doesn't go their way, I'd say a Koran-burning exercise would do them a lot of good when it comes to character building.

    just as long as they don't burn the gospel of the flying spaghetti monster.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    I don't care about the rest of the world. I just want the U.S. to explode from having the Bible being burnt in the same trash can as the Quran.
