Just two days after Pastor Terry Jones canceled his 9/11 Koran-burning event, a man protesting against the construction of the now well-known Islamic community center in New York had his own " Burn a Koran Day."
According to the publication Outside the Beltway the unidentified man first tore out a page of the holy book and threw it up in the air, then removed additional pages and proceeded to burn them.
The incident reportedly took place on the corner of Murry and Church streets Saturday morning before the beginning of numerous protests.
Shortly after this incident the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka Kansas led by Pastor Fred Phelps opened a copy of the Koran, placed an American flag on it and burned them both.
According to a writer at The Daily Beast, Fred Phelps' daughter and spokeswoman Shirley Phelps-Roper said about Pastor Terry Jones, " That guy is an apologist. He was never going to do it."
