Florida pastor unclear about Quran burning

The pastor at a Florida church that planned to burn copies of the Quran added to confusion Friday over whether he intends to go ahead with the controversial event.

The Rev. Terry Jones told CBS' "The Early Show" that "we have called the event off." Soon afterward, however, he told reporters in Florida the burning is still being contemplated.

"We are seriously, seriously, seriously considering not burning the Qurans. That is absolutely right," Jones said.

Challenged by a reporter, Jones then said, "Well, we are hoping that we can come to a conclusion."

"Are you or aren't you?" a reporter asked, to which Jones replied, "We're actually not prepared to answer that right now."

    Abdul–we don't need allah to save America, thank you very much. Allah isn't doing such a great job in muslim countries.

    As a christian, i do not agree on burning other people's sacred book, because there's no point in it. And i belief Jesus christ wouldn't have done that. This is because the end result of it will be confict as it is now, and the holy Bible made us to understand that we should be at peace with all men as long as it depends on us, that blessed are the peacemakers for they shall inherit the earth.
