Now I'm all for freedom of speech and don't believe the pastor should be banned from visiting the UK, the problem I have is now the EDL seems to be inviting this man over, purely to incite muslims. I wasn't aware that the EDL had a religious influence, yet they are inviting a fundamentalist Christian to a Rally to talk about fundamentalist Muslims.

Terry Jones attracted condemnation when he threatened to burn copies of the Koran on this year's 9/11 anniversary.

He said his presence at an English Defence League rally in February would be "positive" but he admitted he would preach against "extremist Muslims".

Strange bedfellows the EDL keep!
There again, it seems par for the course given their previous invite to Rabbi Nachum Shifren from the US to join them in the UK and speak at a rally. I won't go into the Rabbi's biography here, that's what Google searches are for. Suffice to say he seems a bit of a nutjob far right wing type.

So, the EDL tells us they are not some right wing ant-Islam group, but then go an invite guest speakers who are? Go figure!

Interesting the EDL are no longer inviting the Pastor after they did some research into him and didnt agree with his views on race and homosexuality. Wonder why they hadn't done their research before issuing an invitiation?

As an American I just want to apologize to your nation for this. We intended to export cheap electronics to you but apparently somebody didn't get the memo and we seem to have exported all of our jobs to India, our debt to China, and now our idiot to the UK.

And now I am wishing there were a shoulder shrug emote.
