Anti-gay preacher is first-ever banned from Ireland
 
Not unexpected.

But is the first use of a law on the books for 20 years

This Steven L Anderson preacher seems like a swell guy. :rolleyes:

The worrying part is the number of folk who go for this stuff. There must be quite a few, or guys like this wouldn't be able to fill the pews and make a living. I wonder if the guy is a closet homosexual? Remember that other preacher who ranted about homosexuality, and then was caught in bed with a male prostitute? The name Swaggart rings a bell.

I believe Jimmy Swaggart's scandal involved female prostitutes.

Not him, but I know the case to which you refer. Warning: I am rubbish at remembering names because how the hell do I know why?

Anyhoo, I think he targeted Ireland because he is banned from every other EU country and now, Congratulations, he now has the full set.

Also, Ireland is the first country in the world to legalise gay marriage by popular vote. This fact has to annoy him, and being the only EU country not yet to ban him, it was, he thought, low hanging fruit. He thought. Guess again, idiot was the answer he got.

To circumvent the ban, he is now planning to despatch a surrogate. Either the surrogate will get banned also, or if he/she sneaks in, will be greeted with a rather hostile audience.

Ted Haggard ..... that's the one.

He will wear his banning as a badge of honour. He will claim that Satan is behind it all. He's a cross-eyed gun-totin' apocalyptic lunatic. But as we have seen in recent times, those types seem to be popular at the moment.
