Fred Phelps, daughter banned from United Kingdom

The British government has banned anti-gay preachers Fred Phelps and his daughter Shirley Phelps-Roper from entering the United Kingdom.

According to the Times Online of London, the Phelpses had planned to fly to the United Kingdom to protest a performance of “The Laramie Project,” a play about the death of Matthew Shepard, a gay student who was killed in Laramie, Wyo., in 1998. The play is scheduled to open Friday at Queen Mary’s College in Basingstoke, Hamshire.

“You just have to wonder why they did it,” Phelps-Roper, 51, said today from Topeka, where the Phelpses’ Westboro Baptist Church is located. “We’re going to picket a second-rate play, put on by a third-, fourth-rate college. What the heck?”

The Phelpses have become notorious in the U.S. for carrying provocative banners with the phrase, “God Hates Fags.” They have picketed the funerals of U.S. servicemen who died in Iraq and Afghanistan because they believe their deaths were the result of the government’s tolerance of gays.

They recently protested outside Shawnee Mission East High School in Prairie Village over the school’s selection of a gay homecoming king last year. Hundreds of students staged a counter protest and raised money for AIDS research.

“Both these individuals have engaged in unacceptable behavior by inciting hatred against a number of communities,” said a UK Border Agency spokesman to the Times Online. “The government has made it clear it opposes extremism in all its forms.”

The United Kingdom became aware of the planned protest when the Phelpses made an announcement on their Web site castigating the play and “the fag-infested UK.”

Good for the UK. They are hateful, disgusting people. Wish we here in the US didn't have to put up with their BS.

Too bad, maybe she would have got lost and this means, " Toto, I'm coming home."

I don't people should be banned from entering a country that considers itself free because of their opinions.

I tend to agree with douron. These are not rational people. But free speech is free speech.

This is the UK that isn't allowing them entry.

No First Amendment there.

I wasn't aware of that. Maybe they should let them in then throw them in jail.

I agree. They should not be penalized for the opinions they hold, nor should they be penalized for the words they say to those who have chosen of their own free will to hear those words.

However, when they take action which impedes on the rights of others, deliberately offending and insulting people who are attending to their own business, then sanctions are in order.

Yes. They are odious. But opinion is opinion. Unless they are planning to commit crimes, Britain considers itself a free society and they should not be prevented from entering.
