CNN reports that A Christian organization's which had vowed to protect a Florida church during the event of burning the Quran in commemoration with the September 11 attack withdrew its support from the event. A posting on its website maintained that the group alleged that "it does not glorify God" resulting in disappointment from the Dove World Outreach Center accused them of caving into pressure.

"There was at that time absolutely no indication that they were not supportive," Jones said. "I can only come to the conclusion -- it seems very, very obvious -- they ... have bowed to fear or to pressure from other organizations, other groups." He said the group has taken the easy way out by saying "God would not do this."

According to the Right Wing Extreme founder Shannon Carson that despite supporting   the Dove Center's stance on Islam, they rejected the idea of promoting violence, stressing that

"press coverage of recent events, such as "Burn a Quran Day, "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" group on Facebook and the controversy surrounding a proposed mosque and Islam community center near ground zero in New York is "really inciting a lot of hatred and a lot of violence that's going on," Right Wing Extreme founder Shannon Carson told CNN. "We don't want to be a part of inciting violence and racism anymore."

Carson asserted that the  Right Wing Extreme objects the initiative of  building the mosque and Islamic community center near the site of the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, describing it as  "spitting in the face" of the 9/11 families.

Dove World Outreach Center Pastor Terry Jones explained his views emphasizing that he believed the US Muslims were receiving more rights than in their own countries.

 "Muslims are more than free to worship here, which is not the case in sharia law-dominated countries. They only have to respect and obey the Constitution" and not force sharia law on others"

In turn the Muslims in the US responded stressing that they hoped to advocate the true picture of Islam and were launching a campaign to promote the true picture of Islam.

"The Islamic advocacy group Council on American-Islamic Relations has called on Muslims and others to host "Share the Quran" dinners to educate the public. In a statement, the group has said it will give out 100,000 copies of the Quran to local, state and national leaders"

burning the koran christian d
it is a sin against the God of the Bible to treat anyone unlovingly or to burn their koran in showing so, it proves them to be against what the Lord Christ commanded us. The Lord God himself is the one Supreme Judge of all the earth and God is the Lord of hosts. It is my belief that those idiots are in violation of the commandments of God in the Bible and big shame on them. Remember if thy brother offend thee, forgive him until your last breath.
