A father and daughter from a US church which preaches hatred of homosexuals have been banned from entering the UK. Fred Phelps and his daughter Shirley Phelps-Roper from the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) had urged protests against a play being put on in Hampshire.
Even better is why they banned their asses:
The UK Border Agency said it opposed “extremism in all its forms”.
A spokesman added: “Both these individuals have engaged in unacceptable behaviour by inciting hatred against a number of communities.
“We will continue to stop those who want to spread extremism, hatred and violent messages in our communities from coming to our country.
“The exclusions policy is targeted at all those who seek to stir up tension and provoke others to violence regardless of their origins and beliefs.”
Hate speech, contrary to what a certain Canadian appears to think, is intended to provoke hatred and/or violence against others, not make them uncomfortable by challenging something they believe to be true.
