Before George Zimmerman took the stand during his bond hearing this past Friday, April 20, he reached out to the notorious Gainesville Pastor, Terry Jones.
Why did Zimmerman call the Pastor? Because the Pastor had plans to stand outside the Seminole Country courthouse with a handful of his followers, and Zimmerman asked him to stay away. But, that's not what happened. The Orlando Sentinel reports,
Jones and about a dozen followers stood outside the Seminole County Criminal Justice Center in Sanford on Saturday to speak on behalf of the Constitution and call for due process for Zimmerman.
Jones said Zimmerman deserves forgiveness and he said he sympathized with Zimmerman as someone "who has had the world on his back."
Jones drew international attention in 2010 when he announced plans to burn 1,000 copies of the Quran, the central text of Islam, on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
He later staged the burning of Islam's holy book last year. That event was blamed for subsequent riots and the killings of at least seven United Nations workers in the Middle East.
"We are here by no means to claim Zimmerman's innocence. We are by no means here to take sides," Jones said. "We are here for the Constitution."
