However, that delay hasn't stopped the pastor from Gainesville, Fla., from wanting to collect the prize, which he said he plans to donate to a shelter for abused women.

Right. So he gets to look like a good and decent guy, and then when he decides to burn the Koran anyway, or attention whore with another round of threatening to do so, the car dealership gets to try to take it back from an abused women's shelter instead of some bigot preacher. Beautiful.

Nope, the car dealer gets to make a big deal out of it in a new radio ad, and get even more free publicity than he's been getting out of this one.

/you should see his 40' erection

In a perfect world, they'd give him one of those Toyotas with the faulty drive-by-wire accelerators, and the next thing we'd hear of him would be "Preacher who threatened to burn Koran crushed like empty aluminum can in highway accident...film at 11."

What the article doesn't mention is that it's a shelter for abused Muslim women. He is still an asshat, though.

Hey, he's not Gainesville's problem anymore. He moved to Tampa because of a lack of support.

/thank jeebus

See? You don't burn Korans and they support you in turn. I mean, they have enough problems already between Kim Jong-Il and China, cut them a break.

Here's hoping the dealer douses it in gasoline and tosses a match on it right as the guy shows up to claim it.

I neither hate Muslims nor love Hyundais, but I suppose I would be willing to threaten to burn a Koran in order to receive a free Hyundai.

They should have just gave him the Sudetenland.

You can see him any given Sunday, threaten to burn a Koran and drive off in a Hyundai.
 
2010-10-22 01:12:37 PM
I'll threaten to burn all sorts of things if people are going to give me free stuff. I like free stuff. I'm going to burn the Dead Sea Scrolls on the anniversary of their discovery. What do I get?

I havent burned a Koran lately, where's my free car? Farkin muslims are askin for it if they dont start handing out free cars to everybody soon........OHH! look! I just found some matches! I'd hurry up if I were you.

If I had a Hyundai dealership I may have done the same thing. And when he came to pick it up he would see his nice, bright yellow Hyundai POS with "I'm a douche" painted all over it.

Indeed.

Well there is that, but then...

Truly a story of "put your money where your mouth is" for the dealership, but of course:

What he said. I'm just pissed that people actually died because of this attention whore's threats.

I think it's a combination of that, and the fact that it's a Hyundai Accent. I mean really...you couldn't give me a car like that. I'd give it away, too.

For true justice, the Dealership should have had a few employees spend a few days this week prepping the car to turn over tonight...

By covering the outside with verses from the Quran, written on in perm marker...

OK, subby, so he's a Koran preacher that isn't currently burning?

Hope they gave him this color - looks like a booger.

He still gets stuck with the taxes, right? No book burning, no car and a tax bill.

Even though I disagree with him, I used to respect Terry Jones for standing up for what he believed in. He sold his belief in Jesus for $14,000 though. He's no better than Judus.

They must REALLY hate him. Hyundais are the biggest steaming piles ever. My wife's Santa Fe has spent more time in the shop than our driveway. Hyundai has more in repair costs on it than I paid for it.

My friend wouldn't listen to me and insisted on buying a 2010 Azera. He was backing out of his driveway and his front airbags deployed for no reason. Broke his neck and his wife's nose. Wouldn't own a Hyundai if you paid me!

hey c'mon, "women's shelter gets a free car, car dealership gets free publicity, pastor doesn't burn koran" is a far rosier outcome than most of us anticipated of this.

there's no chance of the car being repossessed from the women's shelter by the actions of the preacher, as the dealer only upped the offer from "lend" to "give" as a means to disassociate from anything the preacher could have done with the car.

people presume when someone's got SOME crazy opinions, ALL their opinions are crazy. frequently enough, some of the most bigoted people you'll meet can turn around and be the most charitable too in some other circumstance. not that i can explain why.

spiting the deal and defacing the car before delivery is just as unchristian as burning the koran =p that kind of contractual trickery is associated with the devil, is it not?

It's news from 2002...

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - A former waitress has settled her lawsuit against Hooters, the restaurant that gave her a toy Yoda doll instead of the Toyota she thought she had won.

Jodee Berry, 27, won a beer sales contest last May at the Panama City Beach Hooters. She believed she had won a new Toyota and happily was escorted to the restaurant's parking lot in a blindfold.

But when the blindfold was removed, she found she had won a new toy Yoda - the little green character from the Star Wars movies.

They thought he was going to burn a Korean, and he didn't, so Hyundai gave him a present.

Just like they do with Kim Jong Il, except for the didn't part.

Hyundais contain potassium benzoate.
