I'll be damned if this Terry Jones is not a nut case.A maniacal idiot whose non-denominated obscured church with only 50 members is more a hate group than a Christian denomination.Level-headed Christians are not with him.
Muslims worldwide should ignore this mad man.
U.S. pastor says he will put Mohammed 'on trial' next as Koran burning sparks second day of violence, leaving 10 dead, 78 injured

- Killings in Kandahar follow UN attack that left up to 20 dead and 83 wounded
- Taliban claims responsibility for UN attack
- Demonstrations against the burnings take place across the Middle East
- President Obama appeals for calm but does not mention Florida pastor
- Norwegian, Romanian, Swedish and Nepalese nationals among those killed
Despite clear evidence that his actions have led to multiple murders and widespread violence in the Middle East, controversial Florida pastor Terry Jones has vowed to step up his provocative campaign against Islam.
The radical pastor said that he was considering putting Islamic prophet Mohammed 'on trial' for his next 'day of judgement' publicity stunt.
His last, in which he oversaw the burning of a copy of the Koran after a six-hour mock trial, has been directly responsible for a wave of violence that began last night and has left 30 people dead and more than 150 injured.

A second day of violence in Afghanistan today saw at least ten deaths, 78 injured and at least 17 arrests as protesters clash with security forces in Kandahar.
There were also reports of attempted suicide attacks on a U.S. military base in Kabul, but these were not directly linked to Mr Jones's actions.
But the vilified pastor remains unrepentant about his actions, and has even hinted that he will take his provocative stance further.
He said in an interview today: 'It is definitely a consideration to stage a trial on the life of Mohammed in the future.'
Such a move would trigger further violent protests in the Muslim world - even in more moderate Islamic states.
Unrepentant: Mr Jones checks his phone messages as the media has descended upon him. He has not apologised for his actions, and says he would do it again
Action and reaction: While jones remains defiant (and relatively safe) in Florida, outraged Muslims in Herat, Afghanistan burn the American flag as protests around the country and Middle East flare into deadly violence
But Mr Jones shows no signs of backing down, refusing to admit the violence is his fault, and apparently proud of his actions.
In an interview at his Dove World Outreach Center today, the pastor at least admitted that he was saddened by the Afghan attacks - but added that he would burn the Koran again if given the chance.
He told the New York Times: 'It was intended to stir the pot; if you don’t shake the boat, everyone will stay in their complacency.
'Emotionally, it’s not all that easy. People have tried to make us responsible for the people who are killed. It’s unfair and somewhat damaging.

'Did our action provoke them? Of course. Is it a provocation that can be justified? Is it a provocation that should lead to death?
