The Texan pastor's moved on from the Koran to a pyre of The God Delusion.
IN SCENES of calm bemusement not seen in the lower United States since John Scopes taught innocent schoolchildren evolution, it was reported yesterday that Pastor Terry Jones had given up on his plans to burn 200 Korans and was instead planning to incite atheists by soaking a gross of Richard Dawkins's The God Delusion in moonshine and putting a match to them.
Atheists, who hadn't been expected to come out in pick-up trucks with gun racks on their rear windows and circle his church with their engines revving like goaded Rottweilers, didn't.
As long as those books were paid for it matters not what people do with them. It's their property after all. It just goes to show the vast difference between the mentalities of muslims and people in the western nations.
I guess if he buys them he's helping the cause at least that much. Dawkins should send him a thank you letter for helping the Atheist cause. The local paper should print the story "Local pastor supports Atheism by perchasing every copy of The God Delusion from book story!"
I wish I'd published a best seller. He could burn the whole damned lot for all I care as long as he paid for them first. He's probably enjoyed the brief notoriety and wants to prolong it but he's only made himself a laughing stock.
