SOUTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — The Florida pastor who canceled plans to burn a Quran has picked up a new car in New Jersey.
Car dealer Brad Benson offered Terry Jones a car if Jones promised to never burn the Muslim holy book. Benson made the offer during one of his quirky radio commercials.
The Gainesville, Fla., pastor collected a gray 2011 Hyundai Accent after arriving under tight security at Benson's dealership in South Brunswick Friday.
Jones says the offer was not the reason he didn't burn the Quran. The pastor says he'll donate it to a Jersey City charity that helps abused women.
Benson placed giant, removable American flag peace stickers on the hood and roof of the hatchback. He says he wants to make it clear that he doesn't condone anything that Jones stands for.
