Quran Burning Pastor: Judaism, Other Religions "Of The Devil"

An excerpt from a deposition of Pastor Terry Jones, August 10, 2010.

Pastor Terry Jones who caused international controversy with his Quran burning plan, believes that Islam is "of the devil" and apparently has similar problems with other religions.

Last month, in a deposition from a court case in which Jones was a witness, attorney Michael Spellman asked Jones what else he believed was "of the devil."

Q. And you believe that everything that is not from god is of the devil. Is that right?

A. Yeah, I guess so. Uh-huh. Then again, it depends on what you're talking about. I don't believe necessarily baseball is from the devil because it's not from god. But I mean, basically in general, I believe that if it's not from god, it's from the devil. Right.

Q. Is Hinduism of the devil?

A. Yes, of course.

Q. Buddhism?

A. .Yeah.

Q. How about Judaism?

A. Yes.
