It couldn't be done here but I can't say I blame them. He's one hateful asshole.

A controversial US preacher has become the first person to be banned from Ireland under a 20-year-old power.

Steven Anderson, a pastor from Arizona, runs the Faithful Word Baptist church and openly expresses anti-gay and anti-Semitic views.

His website claimed that he was due to preach in Dublin on 26 May.

However, an online petition calling for Mr Anderson to be banned from Ireland was created in response, and gained 14,000 signatures.

Mr Anderson has previously called for the death of former US President Barack Obama and praised the gunman who killed 49 people in an attack on a gay night club in Florida in 2016.

I don't agree with all that Steven Anderson has said.

Do you know what statements exactly he is banned for?
The BBC makes some pretty big claims against this guy, but doesn't back anything up.

It does say on his website that they believe homosexuality is a sin that is punishable by death .....

Which our Leftist friends are just fine with as long as it's muslims actually doing the punishment by death.

But, for Christians ....

It's not acceptable for them the even say that .....

He said: “We can have an Aids free world by Christmas. Okay, it wouldn’t be totally Aids free, but we’d be like 90-some per cent Aids free by Christmas if we follow this.”

Telling his audience to turn to Leviticus 20:13, Anderson read aloud: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, even both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”

He then said: “And that, my friend, is the cure for Aids. It was right there in the Bible all along - and they’re out spending billions of dollars in research and testing. It’s curable - right there. Because if you executed the homos like God recommends, you wouldn’t have all this AIDS running rampant.”

Tempe Pastor Hails Orlando Massacre for Leaving '50 Less Pedophiles in This World': Video
STEPHEN LEMONS | JUNE 13, 2016 | 11:22AM

Update 2:25 p.m.: Though YouTube took down Anderson's rant for violating its policy on hate speech, New Times has obtained and uploaded the video. Scroll down to view it via the embed below.
Original story:
Wacko Tempe preacher Steven Anderson never misses an opportunity to spew hate and homophobia, so it's hardly a surprise to find him capitalizing on the recent massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, where a gunman killed 49 and wounded 53 more early Sunday morning in the worst act of terrorism on U.S. soil since 9/11.

Anderson, who in his sermons and online rants previously has called for the death of President Obama and the execution of all gays, took to YouTube Sunday to opine on what he called "the bright side" of the horrific event: that the victims, whom he called "50 sodomites," are no longer among the living.
