The city of Gainesville has denied Dove World Outreach Center’s application for a burn permit to set fire to copies of the Quran on Sept. 11, but the church plans to burn the holy books anyway.
Gene Prince, the interim chief of Gainesville Fire Rescue, said Wednesday that under the city’s fire prevention ordinance, an open burning of books is not allowed.
Dove World has made international news since announcing its intention to burn the holy book of Islam to mark the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks..
But permit or no permit, the church has indicated it will go ahead with its planned protest of Islam.
In an e-mail newsletter sent out Wednesday, the church announced: “City of Gainesville denies burn permit -- BUT WE WILL STILL BURN KORANS.”
Prince said his department notified the church, which has fewer than 100 members, of the decision in a letter that was mailed Tuesday. He said the church could be fined if it went ahead and held the burning.
Deputy Chief Tim Hayes, who serves as the department’s fire marshal, and an investigator went to the church’s 20-acre property on Northwest 37th Street earlier this month to determine what the burn would entail.
Under the fire ordinances the City Commission adopted last year, bonfires aren’t allowed without a permit, Hayes said.
As I've said many times, Gainesville is a college town, and that means liberal loons rule the roost here. The town itself does pretty much what the University of Florida tells it to do, and with that in mind Dove World was NEVER going to get a permit to burn any Korans.
I've been assured that they're going to do it anyway, and while not a member of the congregation I'll help however much is possible, because they're going to need a few bucks chipped in to pay for the fines. And there will be fines...plural...because the traitorous scumbags calling themselves civil servants will hit Dove World with all they've got and then some.
Crowd control will be necessary as well. Rumor has it that the lunatic libs will be there en masse, because despite the fact that hundreds, if not thousands of American flags are burned each and every September 11, to light up that filthy old rag of a book is something the lefties simply cannot tolerate.
