Controversial Pastor Terry Jones Plans Another Michigan Visit

DEARBORN (WWJ) – Controversial Florida pastor Terry Jones is coming back to Michigan. He’s scheduled to be in Dearborn in April.

And, just as he’s done several times before, Jones plans to protest in front of the Islamic Center of America.

A media release issued Monday by Jones’ organization “Stand Up America Now” says he will be protesting what he describes as “special Muslim privileges.”

According to the release these privileges include, among other things, halal menu options being offered at Dearborn schools and Fordson High School moving football practices during Ramadan.

You may recall that Jones ignited heated controversy during several stops in Dearborn last year, protesting what he described as “radical Islam.”  His speech outside Dearborn City Hall drew hundreds of supporters and counter-protesters. Jones was jailed for a short time last Spring after refusing to pay a peace bond.
