Pastor Terry Jones, who is most known for burning the Qu'ran in a ceremony two years ago, has decided to hit closer to home by hanging an effigy of President Obama outside a controversial Florida church. The Secret Service is now investigating the pastor's display, which was placed on the front lawn of the Dove World Outreach Center. Jones says the effigy was in response to Obama's recent endorsement of same-sex marriage, as well as his stance on abortion and what Jones called his "appeasing of radical Islam." "The Secret Service is aware of this incident and will conduct an appropriate follow-up," said Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary.
The effigy, which is suspended from a makeshift gallows with a noose of yellow rope, has a doll in its right hand and a rainbow-colored gay pride flag in its left. The words "Obama is Killing America" are printed on a trailer nearby.
