People who frequent the main site should recognize this name, he's been frequently quoted, and is one of David J. Stewart's heroes, to boot....

"Far-Right, Anti-Gay Arizona Pastor Becomes First-Ever Person Banned From Ireland Under Exclusion Powers"

"An anti-gay, far-right Arizona Baptist church pastor — who made headlines for praying for former President Barack Obama’s death in 2009 and again in 2016 for praising the Pulse nightclub shooter — became the first person to be banned from Ireland by exclusion powers this weekend.

Steven L. Anderson, 37, who founded the Faithful Word Baptist Church, a fundamentalist Independent Baptist church in Tempe, had planned to visit a congregation in Dublin, Ireland, on May 26, according to the church’s website. However, Irish Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan on Sunday barred Anderson from entering the country by signing the exclusion, reported The Irish Times.

“I have signed the exclusion order under my executive powers in the interests of public policy,” Flanagan told the newspaper on Sunday. The country’s Immigration Act 1999 allows the Minister to apply the exclusion order if he “considers it necessary in the interest of national security or public policy." The ban went into immediate effect.

Since the legislation was enacted 20 years ago, it has never been used until Sunday, the department said. Anderson has already been banned from the U.K., which covers Northern Ireland, South Africa, Malawi, Canada, Jamaica and most other European Union countries."

So, what're the betting odds on this guy being a closet case?

the notion that homophobes are secretly gay isn't really helpful to anyone so perchance let's not buy into it
