Well at least it is becoming all a big laugh. I wonder if Muslim fanatics do have sense of humour, though; they believe that a child rapist is their prophet and don’t even see the ridicule of that after all.
Terry Jones is then, we are informed, slowly waking up to his own stupidity. He was told the Imam would get on the lift and fetch him the Moon, but now he realises this might not happen after all. “But he said so”, swears he, his moustache vibrating in righteous fibrillation.
God now seems to have inspired him to simply “hold” the burning. Apparently. Probably until He lets him know what other signs He will have to send him for the burning (which the chap now truly, seriously, desperately wants to avoid) to be definitely cancelled.
One wonders what these signs will be. A call from his wife perhaps? His dog suddenly starting to bark? A cold day on the North Pole?
No doubt he will now go into a prayer retreat with the three members of his church still not denying that they ever knew him, waiting for instructions.
He had a huge opportunity and he has spectacularly blown it and made an ass of himself in the process.
Congratulations, pastor Terry Jones.
