Florida Pastor Banned From The U. K.

The British government has banned a Florida pastor from entering the United Kingdom.

They say Pastor Terry Jones plan to burn Qurans on the anniversary of 9/11 is a form of extremism and they oppose it in all its forms.

Jones had planned anti-Islam rallies and was invited by a few far-right English organizations to participate in their rallies.

"Coming to the U. K. is a privilege not a right and we are not willing to allow entry to those whose presence is not conducive to the public good," Government officials said.

Jones is the pastor of a small Christian fundamentalist Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville.

He shelved his Quran-burning event after widespread condemnation.
