    British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his Cabinet has declared that Fred Phelps, among those who are prime terrorist suspects, are banned from entering the United Kingdom.
    One source said that Phelps was an insult to homosexuals and therefore the reason why the ban was imposed on him by the Government.

    Phelps is largely irrelevant: he would have a tiny audience in the UK (of course there is homophobia, but there is fraction of 1% of the population who would be able to listen to his religious ranting to justify it).

    Still, it´s kinda nice that the government should nail its colours so firmly to the mast.

    Seriously, I think Fred's dead. He hasn't been seen in public for a very long period of time and his daughter (the lovely Shirley Phelps-Roeper) is pretty much the face of the "ministry" now. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Fred is stuffed in the attic like Norman Bates' mother.

    LOL, hard to disagree with that I suppose.

    You aren't missing much, unless you are into thoroughly loathsome people.

    Up to very recently, I didn't know who Fred Phelps was. Much of what I've learned about him was from right here at RealJock.
    Phelps is a radical Christian evangelical who travels across the USA and presents himself at gay meetings, marches and so on and preaches eternal hellfire at homosexuals. I read in this forum that on one occasion he preached in front of a gay stall, booth or kiosk, blasting hellfire and damnation at those who were serving customers.
    Phelps is not considered among mainstream Christianity. There is even a dose of heresy in where he says that Jesus hates homosexuals, which is not true.
    Maybe he is wrapping up his ministry, maybe he'll continue. But whatever he does, he is no credit to mainstream churches.

    Countries, including the U.S., ban people from entering for their religious and political viewpoints. Just try to bring a firebrand Muslim Imam or a professed communist or neo-Nazi into the country.

    The ugly truth is that no one has a right to enter another country. It's a privilege. And if a country believes that you are going to cause trouble, they are likely to keep you out.

    This includes the U.S., which has a long list of people on its "no-fly" and "no-entry" lists including people who have been cleared of any wrongdoing. Freedom of speech and religion guarantees apply to citizens and residents only. They do not apply at the port of entry or border crossings.
