Mosque protest barred by Michigan court
by Bernie Woodall
A controversial Florida pastor was barred from protesting outside the largest mosque in the United States on Friday after a Michigan jury found his appearance was likely to provoke violence.
Terry Jones, 59, was briefly jailed after refusing to pay a $1 bond as ordered by Judge Mark Somers, who also barred Jones from approaching the landmark mosque for three years.
Jones and a supporter were tried under an obscure Michigan law that dates back to 1846 requiring people judged to present a risk to public order to post a "peace bond."
