Instead of Jones being in court , he will be in Lansing addressing a rally.
The controversial Florida pastor,is allowed to remain free a little while longer,long enough to strike concern whether he will cause havoc at the scheduled Lansing, Michigan rally. Pastor Terry Jones, whose threat to burn a Qur'an last year caused a national furor, generates a storm of controversy wherever he goes.
A couple of months ago he appeared in the Detroit area, protesting in the front of a Dearborn Mosque. The crowds also appeared. They let it be known that the Florida,promised-to-burn Qur'an pastor wasn't welcome. He is claiming that everyone of the Muslim faith and Islam itself is a false religion, and that they should burn the sacred text Qur'an on 9/11 and buy t-shirts that say “Islam is of the Devil” in order to discredit the religion. He has called on all Christians that actually listen to him to mail him copies of the Qur'an so that he may make a huge bonfire. Jones let it be know before leaving Michigan that he would be back.
Well, Jones kept to his word. This time the infamous pastor will be in Lansing, Michigan at a rally. Lansing is the capital of Michigan, so this just might required extra police presence .Jones is expected to be key speaker at a rally today in downtown Lansing, and Lansing police will be out in full force to monitor the event.
Michigan State police is also expected to be monitoring the event to assist the Local police if needed. With the upcoming anniversary to 9/11, Jones said Tuesday he is planning on having a peaceful rally when he speaks at 6 pm. today on "The Destructive Force: Islam" and the 9/11 attacks.
Although officials their not anticipating any major problems, they said this is just to make sure that demonstrators and other counter protesters continue to have their constitutional rights.
