A Texas skateboarder and the KKK

In Amarillo, Texas, David Grisham, director of Repent Amarillo - which aims to deter promiscuity and homosexuality - planned on burning a Qur'an at a 9/11 event, but before he could set the book afire, 23 year old Jacob Isom, a Texas skateboarder swooped in and grabbed the Qur'an. Jacob told News Channel 10 that “he heard something about burning the Qur’an. Then I snuck up behind [Grisham] and told him, ‘Dude, you have no Qur’an,’ and took off.” Isom made sure the Qur'an ended up in the safe hands of a local Muslim leader. The bad news is that at another rally at Ground Zero against the Muslim cultural center, North Carolina GOP congressional candidate Ilario Pantano told a bizarre conspiracy tale in which Imam Abdul Feisal Rauf, the leader of the Park 51 Muslim community center near ground zero, was in league with Iran. If most muslims were black, these hysterics would probably be bringing back the KKK.
