Posted on 09/08/2010 2:20:52 PM PDT by Binstence
SEPTEMBER 8--The Florida pastor who is planning to burn a pile of Korans this weekend runs a church that has established a variety of cult-like rules for individuals studying to become ministers, according to the groups rulebook.
The Dove World Outreach Center (DWOC), headed by Islam-hating Rev. Terry Jones, has been widely denounced for its September 11 bonfire plans. The tiny Gainesville church is headed by Jones and his wife Sylvia, a co-pastor.
The DWOCs Academy Rulebook, a copy of which youll find here, was created in November 2007 by Sylvia Jones. The document, which details the standards to which a prospective DWOC minister must adhere, addresses topics such as behavior, study, and communication. It is also filled with the kind of creepy directions that are often associated with cults.
For instance, students are directed to cut off most contact with family members. Family occasions like wedding, funerals or Birthdays are no exception to this rule, the rulebook notes. No phone calls. Exceptions can be made under certain circumstances but only after receiving permission.
The Joneses also barred Singles from having romantic relationships to the opposite sex

I don’t think anyone is buying into his attempt at religion, he is getting support for doing something that millions of us want to see
Is he as creepy as Jeremiah Wright, mentor to the President of the United States for 20 years?!!
Don’t like the message, attack the messenger.
Has he published the quotes from the Imam of the Ground Zero mosque accusing the United States of terrorism?
You can do the same thing. Just go out and buy a Koran and burn it.
I ask a different question. How will burning the Koran cause ANYONE to convert to Christianity? Sure he will attract a few nutjobs to his church, but innocent Christians in turd world countries may die for this stupid and selfish stunt.
I was a part of a ‘Christian cult’ back in the 80’s that espoused the same kinds of ‘rules’ over it’s congregation. I got out of that, thankfully. It still operates up here, headquartered out of Graham, WA.
I do NOT support that kind of iron-handed rulership.
I DO support what he’s doing about the Koran.
At least I know the former is against people crashing planes into buildings.
Yah, it’s not about his religion or affiliations. It’s those of us who have had it up over our heads with being told, as Americans, that we have to appease the muslims everytime their little minds get offended. We must slap down fellow Americans and bust them of their rights. We have to put up with their insensitivity at Ground Zero. I, for one, am sick of it.
Uh oh Branch Davidian Waco madness alert. here come the tanks; calling Janet Reno 9-1-1!
He is a giant not unlike David against Goliath. I just wish it were not one single American who has committed not crime who is causing the so called, “global community” and the entire US government from the president down to the dog catcher attempting to censor and silence a single man who’s moral clarity is crystal clear. Islam is smiling.
Wallid Shoebat converted to Christianity after he read the Bible to see what the differences between Islam and Christianity were.
This act of burning Korans is sure highlighting the hatefulness of the Muslims who are threatening to kill people because of it.
The body count is higher than that.
The El Al Air shooting at LAX.
The DC Sniper duo.
The Seattle Jewish community center shooting (I believe there was at least one fatality).
The Army recruiting center shooting.
The Ft. Hood shooting.
And then we have "unsolved" cases like the anthrax attacks.
It must be time for the daily two minutes of hate in an effort to get the public in line with the Victory Mosque and Muslim domination.
Newsflash...they kill Christians anyway. They’ve never needed an excuse before and this isn’t one now.
His website’s apologia for the Westboro Baptist nuts tells me all I need to know about him.
Did Smoking Gun ever point out the links between Communist groups and the so-called “antiwar movement” in 1968 or 2005?
You must be an NYU lawyer. The are the only species who can blame a pastor in Florida for murders committed in 3rd world countries by retrograde 7th century terrorists. Liberalism is a dangerous mental disorder.
Based on what little I read of the manual, it looks very familiar. It contains the same rules that resulted in Jonestown.
This is creepy enough for me!
From now on any death of a soldier who is killed by an Islamist, will be blamed on the “religious right”.
The reduction in forces, and the idiotic rules of engagement, will get a free pass.
The Internet didn’t exist in 1968.
“How will burning the Koran cause ANYONE to convert to Christianity?”
Evangelism is but the tip of the duties of the Christian.
Confronting heresy is, and islam is the greatest Christian heresy that ever existed. (And yes, islam sprang, in no small part from Christian heretics and gnostics.)
It's an international event.
And now for something completely different...
Merkel to honor Mohammed cartoonist at press award
reuters.com ^ | Sep 8, 2010 | Stephen Brown and Knut Engelmann
German Chancellor Angela Merkel risked angering Muslims by speaking at an awards ceremony on Wednesday for a Dane whose cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed provoked sometimes violent protests by Muslims five years ago. The 75-year-old cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, whose drawings of Mohammed that offended Muslims worldwide first appeared in Danish paper Jyllands-Posten in 2005, was due to receive a prize on Wednesday evening at a conference on freedom of the press...
I am concerned that a public official, speaking supposedly in an official capacity, has an opinion about whether an American citizen should, or should not, burn the democrat party donkey in effigy (opps, I mean a Koran).
The smoking gun does not just leak “present day” documents, does it?
And the years are not tied to specific “events”, it is the antiwar movements in total.
The Communist Party USA also protested against going to war against Nazi Germany. That is until Hitler betrayed their beloved Stalin.
The point the pointy headed leftists and so called “progressives” seem congenitally unable to process is that the Reverend has committed no crime while Islam is a global criminal organization who has murdered 14 people in America since 9/11 AND THEY REMAIN SILENT IN CONDEMNATION OF THEM YET take the first and every opportunity to air out their closeted and virulent anti-Christian bigotry in a unified frenzy. It is sick out there and getting sicker.
It is EASY to understand.
Yep, that is it. The end.
I am not being trite. No quip here. Satan.
A real entity, pardon the pun, Hell Bent on beating the Lord God at this game called life on Earth.
The very end game play is that a descendant of King David would rule the Earth as the redeemer of mankind and that the Jews would crown him as such.
The Jews wait for him now, and the Christians believe he came once and will be right back.
The Muslims have a very different take on who they are waiting for, most Christians believe that person will be the AntiChrist.
So, Satan needs only to do two things in “win”. Make sure there are NO Jews from which this king can either COME or BE CROWNED BY.
No Jews: No King: No PROBLEM.
Thus, anyone and everyone who is NOT supporting THAT event. Waiting for or working for that King, is the enemy.
No other political or religious distractions are actually involved.
If you do not SERVE God/Christ, then you ARE serving Satan or at best, simply in the way.
Thus, the liberal Jew, the secular Jew is neither believing in Christ or waiting FOR “A Christ”. Nor is the Muslim, the Atheist, the Secularist, the Humanist, the Buddhist or the ignorant.
THIS is exactly and simply WHY “politics makes for such strange bedfellows”. They are ALL sleeping with the Devil.
So are all the so called Christians who act like this crazy cult idiot. He is not doing the WILL of God, nor are the crazy anti war protesters at God hates Fags.
While true, He does HATE Sodomy, He also hates the folks giving Christ a bad name and failing on that regard.
There IS Christ with a bull whip, kicking ass, yes. But notice in the passage he whipped the men and the large animals. When he came to the doves in cages, he gently opened and let them free.
As far as I know, Smoking Gun emphasizes current cases. But let’s not get sidetracked. This pastor’s church did the indefensible by condoning the Westboro nutjobs.
I t's kool aid time or jump on the back of a comet time---redux.
I love that it is causing not only the islamic nuts to get nuttier, but it is causing the leftist to wet their pants.
I think it would serve a good purpose if the media would pull the passages from the quran which are a danger to society.
Sections which instruct jihad, cutting off heads, killing Jews and Christians, etc., should be widely publicized. Why are the so-called peace loving muslims never challenged on the insane and deadly words of this “holy” book.
Burning this hate-filled book does nothing. I say expose its contents.
Did not Jesus say you had to leave the family had to hate your mother and father and put your hand on the plow and not look back?
You don't even have to buy it.
Just contact CAIR or a local mosque and they will send/give you one, free and postage paid.
I know...I've asked for and received 13 so far.
You'd think the idiots would have caught on by now.
They make great bullet backstops, lousy toilet paper, decent birdcage liner, okay for cat litter box lining and so-so for starting the wood stove fire.
One that I received had wood in the bindings/cover, good enough for my Cub Scout grandson to build a bird house with.
Selective outrage at religious extremism undercuts the entire argument over one nut.
The media gave Barack Hussein Obama a pass for going to the church of God Damn America for 20 years.
I will not be shamed. I have not attended this man’s church, listened to his message, or send him a penny.
He still has the right to burn a koran regardless of his views.
Hillary Clinton has denounced it as an offensive act, yet she told those offended by the Mother Mary in Dung to “stuff it” even though THAT was at a taxpayer funded venue.
Can’t have it both ways.
No we don’t have to put up with it and we mustn’t any longer. We must demand of our so called “representatives” to establish and enforce better and more stringent immigration laws requiring “assimilation training” for prospective new citizens. US citizenship is an honor and privilege and we must stop slouching toward the 3rd world new comers and demand they aspire to assimilation into our precious foundational truths and customs.
Never forget it was Ted Kennedy who, in an effort to save the democrat party and swell its voter base crafted the 1964 immigration and naturalization laws to open the floodgates to 3rd world masses who may not be equipped or evolved enough to extol, never mind carry the banner of our sacred constitution. May his eternity be spent in torment.
Yes, they have. And this just gives them a new excuse.
But you didn’t answer my question, how does this advance Christianity?
How do you know that? The idiot probably agrees with Fred Phelps that the USA had it coming for it not condemning homosexuality. He certainly agrees with Phelps that our dead men and women in the armed services deserved to die.
Really, what is the difference between this nutjob and an islamic jihadist?
They both think Americans deserve to die because of sins against God.
They both want to destroy any middle ground and make this a war of Islam against the West.
We have a winner
I am downloading a copy of the koran as I type this, will print it out and burn it on Saturday night on a small raft in a large lake.
If it threatens to burn out of control, I'll throw jars of piss on it to control the flames.
I hate all mooselimb terrorists and until a "moderate" Muslim takes a blood oath denouncing all violence, they are mooselimb terrorists in my book.
I'd rather we would nuke Mecca and Medina, but right now I'll have to settle for burning the book of total hatred.
Precisely correct. The intrinsically evil ideology of Islam has already threatened a man who has not burned one Koran and the entire US government is siding with Islam. Get out your dusty hymn books, we need to start singing, “Nearer my God to Thee”.
If you burn a copy of Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals (a book dedicated to Satan in the introduction), would Chris Matthews demand a jihad?
“I always try to remind myself of Saul Alinsky when I get confused,” Matthews said on his “Hardball” show...
Chris Matthews: Alinsky ‘our hero’
World Net Daily ^ | 12/26/09 | Aaron Klein
Yes, and it is an added chance by media to denigrate the word "Christian" and associate it with extreme hate and idiocy. It also elevates islam and creates a "victim" for their famous altar which they kneel and worship. Cultural Marxism at work.
It’s a creepy manual BUT IT IS NOT FOR HIS CHURCH.
It’s for some sort of Theology School they have.
Newsflash! If YOU personally do something that causes another person to die, even indirectly, YOU can be held responsible. YOU are the one trying to help this pastor avoid responsibility for his acts.
When the Left burned the american flag at anti-americanwar rallies, it also put our troops in danger.
