Apparently Dove World Outreach Center in Gainsville, FL is planning a “Burn the Qur’an Day” on 9/11/2010. This “church” worships about 50 people weekly is organizing this event “”in remembrance of the fallen victims of 9/11 and to stand against the evil of Islam. Islam is of the devil!”
Yeah, like that will really solve any problem…seriously…this church needs to rethink this and I’m glad that some Evangelical leaders have called them out on this.
The National Association for Evangelicals released a statement Thursday urging the church, which averages 50 attendees each Sunday, to call off the event.
I really hope this doesn’t happen. Christianity is about the Good News of Christ’s death and resurrection for the forgiveness of sin…not spreading fear and hate.
