Quran-burning pastor hangs Obama effigy outside church
An effigy of President Barack Obama hangs from gallows on the lawn outside of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida. The hanging is in response to Obama’s stance on same sex marriage, says DWOC pastor Terry Jones. He calls Obama’s stance “appeasing of radical Islam”. The Huffington Post reports:
The Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla., has hanged an effigy of President Barack Obama from a gallows on its front lawn, a move DWOC pastor Terry Jones said was in response to Obama’s recent endorsement of same-sex marriage, as well as his stance on abortion and what Jones called his “appeasing of radical Islam.”
According to the Broward-Palm Beach New Times, the U.S. Secret Service is currently investigating Jones in response to the display.
“The Secret Service is aware of this incident and will conduct appropriate follow-up,” Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary told the paper’s “The Pulp” blog.
The effigy is suspended from a makeshift gallows with a noose of yellow rope, has a doll in its right hand and a rainbow-colored gay pride flag in its left.
