What Would Jesus Do?
The pastor of a small Baptist church [in North Carolina, USA] has refused calls to take down a sign posted in front of his church reading “The Koran needs to be flushed [down the toilet, like in torture camp Guantanamo Bay],” saying Tuesday he has nothing to apologize for.
“My creed is the Bible, which tells me I am supposed to stand up and defend my faith,” said the Rev. Creighton Lovelace, pastor of the 55-member Danieltown Baptist Church in Forest City.
“I don’t hate Muslims, I just hate their false doctrines.”
But the Council on American-Islamic Relations, based in Washington, D.C., called on Americans of all faiths to demand the message displayed outside the church be removed.

McClellan Backs Away from Claims that ‘Newsweek’ Story Cost Afghan Lives
At a White House press briefing, Press Secretary Scott McClellan, pressed by reporters, and disputed by Afghan President Karzai, retreated on claims that Newsweek’s retracted story on Koran abuse cost lives in Afghanistan.
He also claimed that he had never said it did, even though a check of transcripts disputes that. On May 17, for example, he said, “People did lose their lives” and “People lost their lives.”
