"Part of why we're doing that, please hear me: the charade that Islam is a peaceful religion must end," said Terry, well-known for his antics as an anti-abortion rights activist.

Andrew Beacham, who described himself as the leader of a Tea Party group from Indiana, ripped pages from an English paperback version of the Koran, then placed the ripped pages in a plastic trash bag.

"The only reason I will not burn it at the White House is because to burn anything on the Capitol grounds is a felony," Beacham said, according to AFP.

According to ThinkProgress, Terry dismissed concerns that Sept. 11 was being politicized, saying that he wouldn't "let the tail wag the dog."
