Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida has hung President Barack Obama in effigy along with a Gay Pride flag in front of his church.

In a video posted on YouTube, Jones explained that he was responding to Obama's endorsement of gay marriage and his “appeasing of radical Islam.”

“Obama is killing our nation,” he said. “President Obama's policies on same-sex marriage, his policies on abortion.”

“It's time for the United States to stand up. It is why we have chosen the hanging of Uncle Sam to represent how Hussein Obama is destroying our nation. And that is why we have now chosen the hanging of Hussein Obama to represent how the American people must, in a peaceful way, stand up and reject President Obama, reject his anti-American policies. It's time for us to stand up.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Jones attracted world-wide attention in 2010 when he threatened to burn Korans on the anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks.

Also in 2010, the church vociferously opposed Gainesville Mayor Craig Lowe, who is openly gay, by erecting a sign on its property which read “No Homo Mayor” and producing several videos attacking Lowe.
