Will Pastor Terry Jones and others burn a Quran next month? Many Quran burning events wre held over the last few years especially in the USA.Their message : the Quran incites Muslims to violence.There have been Quran burning events on the eve of Sept 11.
Pastor Jones has been prevented from burning the Quran.
He won a Case against the City of Dearborn,Michigan,USA. He was represented by the Thomas More Law Center.
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, applauded Judge Hood’s decision: “Judge Hood’s ruling upholds a bedrock principle of the First Amendment, that government cannot inhibit the expression of an idea just because some find the idea offensive. This principle is in stark contrast to those nations ruled by Sharia law. The fact that some may find Pastor Jones a controversial public figure or object to his message is even greater reason for Dearborn officials to ensure his right to free speech was protected. So despite the fact that Dearborn has one of the largest concentrations of Muslims in America, the City should have protected Pastor Jones’s right to free speech, not contrive a way to impede it.”
The TMLC attorney Erin Mersino who handled the case, added, “Judge Hood in her ruling clearly recognized that our clients were subject to the unbridled discretion of the City’s legal department, and that in order to exercise their constitutional rights to free speech on public property, they had to surrender many of their other civil rights.”
Mersino continued, “This requirement was not only unconscionable; it was unconstitutional.”
Pastors Terry Jones and Wayne Sapp founded Stand Up America Now for the purpose of proclaiming the Holy Bible to Muslims and educating people about the threat of Sharia law to fundamental principles of freedom. As part of their outreach efforts, Jones and Sapp travel across the country speaking about Christianity at Muslim events and mosques.
