Jones likened his decision to pursue the plans to burn Qurans, and then cancel the event, with the Biblical story of Abraham. "Abraham was also called to do something very crazy, I mean God told him to go the mountain and sacrifice his son. Of course Abraham was much wiser than us, he told no one. So he got to the mountain. He started to do it, and God told him to stop.
"So we feel we have accomplished our goal," he said. "We're obedient. We feel that God is telling us to stop. And we also hope that with us making this first gesture, not burning the Quran - to say, 'No, we’re not going to do it, not today, not ever. We’re not going to go back and do it. It is totally canceled - we would hope that through that, maybe that will open up a door, [to] be able to talk to the Imam about the Ground Zero mosque."
He denied that he made the Quran-burning plans to court publicity.
He hears voices in his head from the Almighty. The voice said burn the Koran and now the voice says not now, not ever will he burn the Koran. But if the voice says do it he will do it and you know that. Don't we lock up people who hear voices in their head anymore? This is one dumbass pastor and doesn't bat an eye comparing himself to Abraham. Why? Because the voice in Abraham's head said to kill his son and then reversed it at the last moment. The pastor is right this is VERY CRAZY shit. Humans are so dumb. They imagine the wildest things and feel they are the center of the universe and know without a doubt god is speaking to them, justifying one action and then reversing it and justifying it in the same way. No rhyme or reason. This is religion. This will be how man destroys himself. The twin towers were destroyed killing thousands of lives and leaving many families broken hearted because someone heard the voice of god. The pastor says that voice is of the devil, but hey maybe a door is open to talk about not building a ground zero mosque. Bat shit crazy this one.
