Koran-Burning Pastor Hangs Obama in Effigy in Church’s Front Yard
The Blaze ^ | June 9, 2012 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 06/09/2012 11:26:45 AM PDT by QT3.14

Florida Pastor Terry Jones — whose Koran-burning activities have gained worldwide attention — is in the news again, this time for hanging President Barack Obama in effigy in front of his church.

A photo posted on The Smoking Gun shows a dummy with Obama‘s likeness hanging from a yellow noose outside Jones’ Dove World Outreach Center. The scene also features an American flag, a rainbow-striped gay pride flag, an Uncle Sam dummy and a child‘s doll in the Obama figure’s hand. The words “Obama is Killing America” are posted on a trailer nearby.

WOW. This could be viewed as racism by some as opposed to a political statement by others. Just sayin’

It's another publicity stunt for his Presidential campaign...

A spokeswoman for the church confirmed the effigy is real and passed on numerous news releases for Jones' newest movement, "Stand Up America," including one that bore the headline "Terry Jones on Obama -- Hang 'Em High."

It says Jones will be holding a news conference today to announce his candidacy for president and an included YouTube video includes Jones saying, "We have chosen to hang President Obama as a symbol of what America needs to do. We must remove him; we must vote him out of office."

Of course it’s racism against blacks! That is the only kind of racism that there is. If black scum torture, rape and murder white people, that’s not racism. That’s just the islamic communist program of attack against America working.

But not racism. Racism is only racist if someone’s against or points out that the islamics are murdering Christians, RIGHT NOW, thousands a day, but that’s not racism. That’s only the Religion of Peace.

Just shaking my head... how can a guy be this stupid?

Naturally Obama will reference the hopeful lynching of the first Black president, and many folks who may have been heading for the exit will once again be susceptible to the Whites vs Blacks claims of our idiot president.

The best we can do is call this guy in public for being the idiot he undeniable is.

Vote the guy out in November. That’s our number one goal. Why give folks cause to not do it? Did this guy just get a big donation from the DNC he’s not telling us about?

Just because his daughter's attempts to have him institutionalized have been unsuccessful doesn't mean Pastor Jones isn't crazeeeee.

It’s a “church” as much as that Westboro “church” is.

This is the exact image the follwers of Jesus Christ need to project to the world. (is the "/s" really necessary?)

I suspect the 'pastor' is less enthralled with the pure Gospel of Jesus Christ than he is with the "Terry Jones" version.

While this administration has been problematic for the United States,I don’t think this is the statement that needs to be made.Especially in a house of God,that is just backwards.

Otherwise looking for attention in this fashion is just crass.

You know, I'm curious as to why the left haven't grabbed this and run with it, you know, the MSM and all.

Why aren't they using it? This is from the Blaze. Curious.

I have a quaint old belief that a Pastor should be concerned with spreading the Gospel.

Like many other people called "pastor" or "reverand", Terry Jones needs to focus on what the title means. If not, go find another line of work.

The pastor has it wrong. The Stars and Stipes should be replaced by a red flag with a hammer and sickle and Obama should be wearing one of those rags on his head that Yasser Arafagt used to wear.

Trayvon’s homies will be there shortly to burn down the good Reverend’s church. Bet on it.

Pastor Terry Jones has the biggest brass balls in America. Someone needed to do this. What can Al Not-So-Sharpton say? What can Jesse Jerkson say? Jones will rip them to shreds any they know it.

I wish this clown would go away. He does nothing to help our cause and only plays into the hands of the Obamanistas.
