Well, that's just sneaky

Oh Your God. This Jones guy is even more of a psycho than I thought. He's called off the Qur'an burning, saying that he reached an agreement with the people putting up the mosque near ground zero that they will move it. They, of course, have done no such thing. Rather, they agreed to meet him.

You can see where this is going, right? "Them lyin' Mooooslems said they'd move it, just to get me to call it off. They went back on their word because they're eeeeeeevil. Now we neeeeed to burn the Koran!"

I think Pastor Terry realized the last thing he needs is to draw attention to his dubious self. The man has a history at home and abroad and probably has a few IRS issues to boot. His estranged daughter says he's running a cult and some of his former flock claim he forces his faithful to work in a furniture factory owned by Jones and his wife - for free.

Then again maybe Jonsey figured there'd be a big juicy fatwa on his ass if he went ahead with it. Can't be taking time off work at the factory now.

Ah,the perverted face of fundamentalism - Christian, Islamic or Judaic - all the same.

Well that's interesting. Where did you get that data? I'm intrigued. :)

There's a piece on The Smoking Gun where they link to his "church's" "academy rulebook". An excerpt from the Smoking Gun piece...

For instance, students are directed to cut off most contact with family members. “Family occasions like wedding, funerals or Birthdays are no exception to this rule,” the rulebook notes. “No phone calls. Exceptions can be made under certain circumstances but only after receiving permission.”

The Joneses also barred “Singles” from having “romantic relationships to the opposite sex…Except work things, there is no need to talk at all, or even flirt!” Students were barred from “eating out in restaurants” and warned that they would be weighed “once a week to follow the tendency,” an apparent reference to a weight goal established by the Joneses.

Yeah, if that doesn't scream "CULT!", I don't know what does.
