Terry Jones, a controversial pastor who has made national headlines for publicly burning the Quran, is mounting a campaign for president of the United States.

Jones isn’t starting small either, and it seems he’s going straight for the big leagues. The campaign, named “Stand Up America Now,” aims to propel him to the White House largely on a seven-point platform which includes deporting all “illegals” and immediately bringing all of the troops home,according to ABC Action News.

The pastor’s message appears to remain anti-Muslim. A statement from Jones announcing his campaign goes as far as to solicit donations in order to specifically oppose radical Islam according to Fox News. “Please financially support us as we continue our stand against radical Islam,” it reads.

Jones gained a level of infamy after President Barack Obama was forced to request he not burn a copy of the Quran on the anniversary of 9/11 in 2010. Though he cancelled his initial plans, he ultimately followed through on his word and burned the religious text in March. The act sparked widespread protests in Afghanistan, some of which turned deadly.

In addition to “deport all the illegals”, part of his platform is to reduce corporate taxes.

        I love the look of that little car and would have no problems being nerd girl driving around in it. My Honda is doing fine for me, so I am in no rush to get anything right now but that little car would be one I would take a look at. Even my boys on Top Gear have said it’s a brilliant little car.

    How about the “Rapture” king, Harold Camping throwing in as a presidential candidate. Let’s see how many Republican creatards we can list.

    I don’t care who you are, or what your religion, you do not have the right to burn someone else’s holy book. How would you feel if ‘they’ burned ‘your’ holy book?
    Religion, like sex, drugs and politics should be conducted by consenting adults in private.

      I don’t believe in holy books. There are only books.
