“Pastor, this is Jon Meacham,” the former Newsweek editor said on Morning Joe earlier today. Mr. Meacham was speaking on live television to Pastor Terry Jones, who is leading his Florida congregation in burning Korans tomorrow, September 11.
“The central message of the New Testament is forgiveness and to put oneself in the place of another,” Mr. Meacham continued. “And so I would simply appeal to you as a fellow Chrsitian that the course you suggested is going to be incredibly dangerous.”
Mr. Jones wasn’t given airtime to respond.
