Koran-Burning Pastor: We Want To Send A 'Clear, Radical Message' (VIDEO)


Jones was talking with Chris Matthews, who asked him whether he thought people would have a positive or negative reaction to his plan. "I think it's going to be positive," Jones said.

"We are dealing with a society and with the sharia law that condones the killing and stoning of homosexuals, the stoning of adulterers," he continued.

Said Jones:

And what we hope to accomplish by the burning of the Koran is to send a very clear, it is indeed a radical message, but a very clear radical message to Muslims, to sharia law, that that is not welcomed in America.

Matthews also asked whether a personal phone call from President Bush would change Jones' mind. Jones said no: "We are going to continue ahead," he replied.
