In what the city’s mayor called an “un-American” event, motorcyclists and Quran-burning pastor Terry Jones of Florida say they are coming to Dearborn this month on Flag Day to rally against what they claim is the threat of Islamic law being implemented in the U.S.

Called the Dearborn Freedom Rally, the June 14 event is to be held in front of the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn, one of the biggest mosques in Michigan. A Facebook page, with images of a bald eagle and the U.S. Constitution, says that about 450 are planning to attend the event.

On Thursday, Jones said he was contacted by a group of bikers for their rally. They plan to ride through Dearborn and then protest outside the mosque, with Jones delivering a talk to them.
