God forbid that any misguided and misinformed people think that Jones is acting as some kind of patriot. I stand here today to tell you that is message and mission of burning a Koran is unbiblical. He has gone beyond the scope of this office of a pastor, shepherd, and overseer. He seems to me to be nothing less than an angry, self-righteous, and unloving man who is doing irreparable damage to both the office of pastor and Christianity. He certainly is smearing the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
