Dove World Outreach Center Website Pulled by Rackspace Over 'Hate Speech'
Despite near universal condemnation, Reverend Terry Jones and his congregation of 50 parishioners are planning on commemorating the ninth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks by burning 200 copies of the Koran. The decision has already sparked demonstrations in Indonesia and Afghanistan, and has drawn the ire of everyone from Sarah Palin to Barack Obama -- including, apparently, visitors to Dove World Outreach Center's site.
Goodgame claims that his Web-hosting company has received a flood of complaints about the content promoted on Jones's site, which includes a link to buy his book, 'Islam is of the Devil.' The spokesman mentioned, however, that Rackspace had held a conference with Jones on Wednesday afternoon to inform him of the decision, and has given him until midnight to relocate his site to another hosting service. Unfortunately, though, Jones and his minions have already gained enough notoriety to get their message out to a larger audience -- host, or no host.
