Rev. Terry Jones is the head of the Dove World Outreach Center (DWOC) who has been widely denounced for his plans to put to fire copies of the Islamic holy book, the Koran.
The pastor from Florida, U.S.A. established a set of strict guidelines for individuals studying to become ministers and found in his grammatically-challenged rulebook.
The DWOC's Academy rulebook was created in November 2007 by his wife Sylvia Jones.
The nine-part rulebook details how aspirants should behave while in the academy from communicating with other people, back talking, eating, family relationships, and bathing. For instance:
- Students are directed to cut off most contacts with family members. “Family occasions like wedding, funerals or Birthdays are no exception to this rule,” the rulebook notes. “No phone calls. Exceptions can be made under certain circumstances but only after receiving permission.”
- "In order to obey God, we have to leave family behind! Jesus said: those who are doing the will of God are my family."
- Students must “wash or shower at least once a day but not more then 2 a day,” and make sure to cleanse “Mouth, sweat areas, hair, feet hands.”
