The headline says it all: Pastor Jones Cancels Koran Burning, Says Imam Rauf Has Agreed To Move NYC Mosque.
To the "progressives", leftists, Obama, and the media, Pastor Jones may look like some kind of back-country hick preacher, but I'd say he's played them pretty well. That's why all the Obama-loving, left-of-center pundits are asking the media to quit covering this controversy, because it now shows their blatant double standard -- and puts the ball back in the court of Imam Rauf. Why should Americans be concerned with offending the Muslim street, if the Muslim street isn't concerned with offending Americans?
I know very little of Pastor Jones. I don't know if he really is a genius, or even if he planned this out. The media jumped on this story for the "see-what-this-uneducated-redneck-is-doing" potential, and it has backfired. It was a genius move and shows America that this tolerance stuff is a one-way street.
