TRENTON, N.J. (RNS) On the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 terror
attacks, Derek Fenton stole headlines by burning pages from the Quran in
lower Manhattan to protest a planned Islamic community center there. Two
days later, he lost his job at New Jersey Transit for breaching the
agency's code of ethics.
