Gee, what an honor. For a moron.

An American preacher with extreme anti-gay and anti-Semitic views has become the first person ever banned from Ireland by exclusion powers dating from 1999.

Steven L Anderson, a Baptist pastor based in Arizona, came to public prominence in 2009 when telling his congregation he had prayed for the death of then President Barack Obama and also praised the gunman who killed 49 people in an attack on a gay club in Florida in 2016.

His website stated he planned to preach to a congregation in Dublin on May 26th but did not specify the time or venue. An online petition calling for Mr. Anderson to be banned has so far been signed by 14,000 people.

Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan signed the exclusion on Sunday in respect of Pastor Steven L Anderson with immediate effect under the Immigration Act 1999.

It is not often that I am jealous of Ireland but this is one of those times. 

I would also like Pastor “I hate gay people” Anderson to be banned in this country as well. 

But unfortunately, we have that persnickety 1st Amendment thing which allows ignorant and hateful people to say ignorant and hateful things.  

The Constitution both giveth and taketh away.

    The White House’s plan, which is reportedly still under consideration, was to arrest parents and children in 10 U.S. cities with large immigrant communities such as New York City and Los Angeles. The targeted individuals would already be subject to final deportation orders by an immigration judge, the Post and AP reported.

    “There was concern that it was being hastily put together, would be ineffective and might actually backfire by misdirecting resources away from critical border emergency response operations,”

    That’s silly, praying for someone’s death. We all “die”.

    How much McDonalds does this guy eat?

      Yes…thank you Ireland!

      What a perfect example Anderson is of a Christian! (I intended that as a snarky remark, but now, in our current environment, I actually feel it’s true.)

      Anyone else think that the anti-gay Anderson doth protest too much?
