God May Hate Fags, But England Doesn't

Or at least they've refused entry to members of the Westboro Asshole Church. Check it.

The Westboro Baptist Church, based in Kansas, has been planning to stage a protest against a play being put on by a gay youth group in southeast England on Friday.
But the Home Office said Fred Phelps and Shirley Phelps-Roper have been told they cannot travel to Britain because of their views.

Fred Phelps & Co. are really amazing people, in my opinion. How ANYONE who professes such love of Jesus Christ can be so full of hatred is just incredible to me. Let's check the Bible, shall we?

1 John 3:14-16 (NIV) says:
We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.
Hey, Fred "I'm a Horrible Person" Phelps, WTFWJD?

Oh, and good job, England.

That'd be 1 John 3:14-16, not John 3:14-16, but yes, other than that, you're good. :D

As much as I dislike the Phelp's position I don't like the idea that they are prohibited to travel. They should have equal opportunity to be mocked in the UK as in the USA.

Oops! I knew I did that somewhere, but I forgot where. Thanks for the help!

Anon @7:17 -- they're not prohibited by us, but by them. Different countries have different laws, that's how it works. They can come mock soldiers' funerals in the US any time they want, but when they go overseas, local rules apply.

Our borderline oppressive immigration controls rock!
