    (CNN) -- The Florida pastor who had planned to burn copies of the Quran on Saturday has called off the controversial event.
    The Rev. Terry Jones of the Gainesville, Florida-based Dove World Outreach Center also announced Thursday that the imam who planned a mosque and Islamic center near ground zero in New York has agreed to move it to another
    location.
    Jones said he will travel to New York on Saturday to meet with Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf.
    I don't care one way or the other if the Islamic Center is built. However, feeding trolls in the form of the Pastor of Bigotry will cause more problems than it will solve. If the center is moved, it may have ore to do with Donald Trump's offer than anything else.

    Jones appeared on all three network newscasts this morning. Jones said he has made contact with Musri. He has not made direct contact with Iman Faisal Abdul Rauf.
    "No decision has been made to whether we will burn or not burn Qurans," he told NBC. "It is under serious conserideration, but at this this point no decison has been made."

    Would that mean that the Imam's convictions are easily changed for the right sum of $?

    I have heard ABSOLUTELY NO ONE support the Pastor's Koran-burning demonstration. Quite the opposite ... there seems to be universal (and ecumenical) agreement that it's an ignorant, dumb thing to do, even if the right to do so is protected.

    Sounds like the same stance that many take on the mosque location?

    Much of the muslim world does not (cannot, given their circumstances) that the US gov't does not supress such actions, and therefore, to the extremists, appear complicit or even supportive.
    Using this logic, does it mean that if Cordoba House gets built in its proposed location, that the Muslim world will perceive the US govt as being supportive of doing so? If so, does this mean that it is perceived as some kind of "victory" for extremists who act in the name of Islam?

    I still do have some tendency to agree with Hew's irritation that we have to ALWAYS be totally PC in dealing with Muslim sensitivities, and must turn the other cheek when they vilify the US and the West ad nauseum. Assuming it is only Muslim extremists who do that, is not this Florida pastor also just one of a small minority of extremists? (less than 50 people in his congregation in a country of 300 million!)Double standard?

    According to what I saw on the news this morning there is NO deal on behalf of those building the mosque.

    I think you're right about the ulterior motive, but I think it had less to do with the mosque at ground zero than the good pastor's desire to garner as much publicity as he possibly could, including attracting more members--and thus more money in the coffers. Claiming credit for the mosque site being moved was more likely him responding to a rumor and keeping his name in the media. And in that he was wildly successful: he is a nobody and a loser and without all this media attention no one would give a dam about him and what he does. But now thanks to shoddy reporting many will think he is responsible if the mosque gets moved.

    Here is my issue with all of this.

    #1--We all know the 1st amendment allows one to burn an American flag (unless road kill is around)

    #2--We all know the 1st amendement allows Mosques to be built within shouting distance of "Ground Zero."

    #3--We all know that the same 1st amendment allows one to burn a Koran (again, unless road kill is around)

    But on #3 it's a front page news and a world wide issue, totally unacceptable.

    Why you ask??

    Fair question, evidently the peace loving Muslims will rally world wide and hate us and try to kill us even more than they already do/are!!

    So, if they are so peace loving, respect and love America and only a small handfull are radicals, what's the big deal??

    Or is it just a small handfull of radicals??

    Number 2 has also been front page news and plenty of threats and violence have occurred amongst 'peace' loving Americans.

    Building a house of worship and community center is hardly on par with burning of one's sacred religious tome.

    Anyone who has to have that explained to them, needs to pay more attention in their kindergarten class.
