A Florida pastor, Terry Jones, caused a huge stir in 2010 when he threatened to burn a Quran.
He finally backed down, but in response, there were violent protests throughout the Middle East with great loss of life. This 9/11, Jones had planned to burn 2,998 Qurans to commemorate all the victims in the 9/11/01 attack. It was going to be a much louder protest this time but his plans were thwarted. Polk County sheriff's deputies arrested Jones and Marvin Sapp, Jr., his associate pastor, on felony charges before they could set those Qurans on fire.
