Anti-Islam Rhetoric Heats Up Ahead of 9/11
Today, a Christian pastor will hold the second service in a series bashing the planned Muslim community center in downtown New York City in a sign of increasing vocal anti-Islam rhetoric ahead of the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
"When they decided to build a mosque and decided to preach what I consider a 1,400-year-old lie from Hell, I decided that somebody should be down there preaching the truth of God's word," Florida pastor Bill Keller said over the weekend.
Although his first service was sparsely attended, Keller is not alone.
Another preacher, Terry Jones from the Dove World Outreach Center in Florida, is planning what he called "International Burn a Koran Day" which encourages people to set fire to the Islamic holy book "in remembrance of the fallen victims of 9/11 and to stand against the evil of Islam," according to a Facebook page dedicated to the event.
