Standing outside his 50-member Pentecostal church, the Dove Outreach Center, alongside Imam Muhammad Musri, the president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida, Jones said he relented when Musri assured him that the New York mosque will be moved.
Hours later, after Musri and the leader of the New York mosque denied such an agreement, Jones said Musri "clearly, clearly lied to us."
"Given what we are now hearing, we are forced to rethink our decision," Jones said. "So as of right now, we are not canceling the event, but we are suspending it."

I like the burn plan. Jones just needs to ramp it up a bit. Take it to a whole new level. Here's how Carpenter would handle the show:
Burn everything to the ground. Don't stop with Korans. Burn all bibles! Christians have their Holy Bible, Mormons have the Book of Mormon, Jews have the Hebrew Bible, and I'm sure that other religions have their own sacred screed.
But wait! After the commercial break, we'll be burning the words-on-paper that other believers hold dear. We'll start with the Constitution, which all Americans clutch to their breasts and then completely ignore. Next, the American Flag. Yes! Now we're getting somewhere.
Let's finish burning this bitch to the ground, so that we can get back up, dust ourselves off, and carry on with the business of living next to 5 billion other human beings.
