Terry Jones, the mustachioed Florida pastor who threatened to burn the Qur’an on September 11th* is considering visiting Mayfield, Kentucky, where lawmakers recently blocked the construction of a Mosque and an ACLU challenge is mounting.

Our colleagues at Kentucky Public Radio report that he told a Flordia radio station he is considering visiting Kentucky after receiving a call from Mayfield and hearing reports of violence by Muslims. Jones’s reports are unconfirmed.

Should this post on Terry Jones exist? He was a relatively unknown pastor of a tiny congregation in Florida, but is now a media celebrity. It has been argued that reporting on his actions and statements only ads some legitimacy to his ideas. It’s also been argued that the reporting brings potentially dangerous views to light. Your thoughts?

*Not Terry Jones the British comedian.
