some faith restored

“Rev.” Phelps (from the westboro baptist church) and his daughter were banned from the uk and in the end only ONE protester showed up to the theatre in basingstoke… and was fairly rapidly despatched by the counter protest of around 50.

See BBC news

I’m still appalled that Geert Wilders was banned from entering the country for a rational discussion, the video is controversial but its hardly hate speech in that it doesn’t promote violence or action against Muslims it just questions if Islam is a peaceful religion… albeit by interspersing carefully selected passages from the Qur’an.

And for the record, its ok by me to criticise fiction in any case, yeah fiction.
