Anderson Cooper Talks With Koran Buring Crazy Ass Religious Extremist "Pastor" Terry Jones – Video

Anderson Cooper took on batshit crazy religious extremest and terrorist Pastor Terry Jones of Florida (Who btw is also ant-gay) who is holding a “Burn The Koran” day on the Anniversary of the 9/11 last night and Cooper held no punches.

COOPER: Do you consider yourself a bigot?

JONES: No, not at all. And we do not consider our message a message of hate.

It is — it is a clear message of warning. We have tried to make it very, very clear that, according to the United States Constitution, Muslims are more than welcome in America. They are welcome to worship. They are welcome to build mosques.

We have made that very, very clear. I understand they’re not in agreement. And they’re mad and angry. They’re — they’re — they’re insulted because we are burning the Koran, but they should, indeed, be with us on the fact that radical Islam is bad. It is evil. We do not want it in this country.

COOPER: Well, I — I — I think the vast majority of Muslims in the United States would agree that — that extremism and radical Islam is a bad thing. And many of them have worked to — to fight it.

But I asked about the bigotry, because the definition of a bigot that I just got off Dictionary.com is a person who is intolerant of any ideas other than his or her own, especially on religion, politics or race.

You do appear to be remarkably intolerant on any ideas other than your own regarding religion.

JONES: We are — as the Bible teaches, as Jesus teaches, we are intolerant, yes.

Jones is clearly insane to the point of Fred Phelps and The Westboro Baptist Church order.  What he is doin is very dangerous.  It has been condemned by the White House and General Petreaus because it can spark an international incident and lead to the harm of American solders fighting in the Middle East and can spark more terrorist attacks at home,e and abroad.

But STLL there has been NO CONDEMNATION from the Republican Party, The Tea Party, any Right Wing Groups or Religious organizations. 

Their silence is deafening.
