(Newser) – First Terry Jones was definitely, definitely going to burn a bunch of Korans, then he was maybe going to not do it if Obama called, but now the pastor says his church will never burn the Islamic holy book, he tells the TODAY show this morning—even if a mosque is built two blocks from Ground Zero. Jones says the point was "to expose that there is an element of Islam that is very dangerous and very radical." So since "we have definitely accomplished that mission," there's no longer a need to actually set fire to anything.
