    I think it's all pretty freakin' funny. The preacher wants to exercise his right to free speech and express his hatred, that's fine. Then Canada gets to exercise their right to tell any foreigner to get the hell out. It all looks entirely fair to me. People do have rights but there always consequences for practicing them too. It's wise to remember that other people have rights as well, and given ample reason, they may exercise them. Maybe this idiot preacher will follow the "spirit of the law" as well as the letter of the law, in the future. He probably won't, but the chance to learn has been provided to him.

    Really - don't you think the US has the right to determine who can come and go? I think we do and so do they.
    Governments can determine who comes and goes, and I can think they're stupid.


    Ooooh, he burns Qurans!!

    What sissies poop their pants on that one? Canadian sissies, that's who.

    He's actually done more than that - and it offended Germany - and they filed a charge against him - and Canada took it into note.

    He's a bigot full of hate speech, his only mission is to cause endless trouble - do they really need him to visit? No. They don't need the international drama that might ensue. . . they don't have to have him there if they don't want him.

    You (ecofarm) may not care, but most Americans do indeed care.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I don't think so. Everyone I know is ~"like I give a damn what some idiot does, I got stuff to do". Perhaps you hear too much of the fringe.

    Wasn't there a petition or something that got shot down in vote?

    I'm really angry that Canada wouldn't let him in. Because had they let him in, we could have refused to let him come back. On what grounds, you say? I don't care...how about invoking an international version of the DBAJ rule?

    Seriously, Canada is allowed to let into their country anybody they choose, and to keep anybody they choose out of their country. Don't like it? Don't visit Canada.

    I don't care either. Don't know anyone who does. Hippies are the negligible dregs of society, and nobody who matters cares about what they think.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
