Koran-protest pastor given UK ban

Controversial US pastor Terry Jones has been barred from entering the UK for the public good, the Home Office says.

In December, Home Secretary Theresa May said she was "actively looking at" whether Mr Jones should be banned from entering the UK after the right-wing English Defence League (EDL) had invited him to share his views on Islam at a rally in Luton, Bedfordshire, in February.

However the EDL later withdrew the invitation to Mr Jones. A spokesman said it was because of his critical views on homosexuality and race. Full Story

As more of these bigots get put on hate organization lists, watch lists, and are banned from entering foreign countries, I hope that Amurikkka wakes up and sees them for what they are:

Hate mongering bigots that prey off the fears of the uneducated.

Hopefully this will send SOME type of message to all those other people who love to hate. The Lord did not program of us for hate and discrimination we just kind of picked that up through out the centuries with great misfortune. :(

How do we get this idiot out of Gainesville? He promised last year that he and his cult were leaving at the end of 2010.

It seems to me that if a nation can prohibit entry to those deemed undesirable, then why can't any state exercise state's rights and do the same to those the state deems undesirable, like this pastor and his colleagues such as Fred Phelps and his own ilk? Best to you.
