Qu'ran Burning Canceled (Prayer totally works.)

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The minister of a Florida church said he has canceled plans to burn copies of the Quran because the leader of a much-opposed plan to build an Islamic Center near ground zero has agreed to move its location. (Sep 9, 5:25 PM EDT)

Please keep praying. It's totally not over.

Pray AGAINST the Qur'an Burning on 9/11

I just received this plea from my dear cousin, whose life will be in danger if this ridiculous Pastor Jones follows through with the plan of burning the Qur'an on 9/11. Please pray that if he goes through with this, that the message will be connected to him as a lunatic and not to "the West," Christians, or the military. 
Please pray with me that the church in Florida will NOT go ahead with plans to burn the Qur'an on September 11. Please pray for the safety of minority Christians around the world whose lives have been put in danger, and please pray for the Muslims around the world who will feel alienated by this insensitive and irresponsible plan.
With a gun at his side and a plan to burn, Jones thinks this will be an effective warning "to the radical element of Islam." Here's the message from the Pastor Terry Jones, who heads the little-known Dove World Outreach Center in Florida.

"The Vatican today denounced as "outrageous and grave" plans by a Florida church to burn copies of the Quran on 9/11." USA Today
"Germany's leading Jewish group condemned plans by a Florida pastor to burn the Koran on the anniversary of 9/11, saying it evoked the mass killings of Jews in the Holocaust that followed Nazi book burnings." Reauters
"A religious leader who met with Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday said the top US law enforcement official described as "idiotic and dangerous" a Florida church's plan to burn copies of the Koran on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks." AFP 
"He will bring total contempt from the world's fastest-growing religion against the world's oldest democracy. He will destroy the goodwill generations of Americans have worked to create in almost every nation. He will -- in just a few seconds of self-proclaimed glory and protest -- paint a target on the backs of U.S. troops, diplomats, foreign service employees, humanitarian relief workers and American tourists.Worse, still, Jones and his followers will provide our enemies with a propaganda tool that will outlast our lives and those of our children and their children."

Bangladesh Swirly

Dad asked the family to caption this. After my brother captioned it "Bangladesh Swirly," yeah, no one else attempted to do better. Maybe he can relate. *giggling softly* I wish I knew where this picture was found. Amazing.
