• Pastor Terry Jones Having His Constitutional Rights Infringed Upon by U.K.

    Terry Jones — the Floridian pastor who threatens to burn Korans when people with whom he disagrees get to have rights that he doesn't want them to have — has apparently found himself banned from entering the United Kingdom to visit his daughter and granddaughter due to U.K. feelings that he is "not conducive to the public good" and also kind of an asshole…

    Pastor Terry Jones was prevented from coming to the country by the Home Office, in the latest in a string of controversial bans on right-wing American political figures which has led to accusations of censorship against the British government.

    "I have no intention of doing anything against British law," Mr. Terry told Sky News.

    "We feel this is definitely against constitutional rights to travel, freedom of speech."

    I'm not a huge fan of this guy, but I do think that he has a case here. I mean, seriously? These British people are infringing upon his rights under the United States Constitutional rights to travel where he likes! That's not right!

    Our Founding Fathers didn't spend years of their lives fighting British oppression in the hopes of creating a document so fundamental to the American way of life just to have it thrown out the window by a bunch of British people in Britain! Who do they think they are.

    I hope Pastor Jones takes this one all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States.
