Florida Pastor Still Seeks Meeting on New York Islamic Center

The pastor of a small Florida church who put off a scheduled Koran burning said he is still seeking a meeting about an Islamic center proposed for a location near the World Trade Center site.

Terry Jones, pastor of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, said he wants to meet with Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf about moving the center. As of last night, the minister said Rauf hadn’t responded to Jones’s demand for the New York imam to contact him by 3:20 p.m. Florida time yesterday.
