A Florida pastor who threatened to burn a pile of Korans on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks has been officially banned from Britain for preaching religious extremism.
Terry Jones, who had been invited to address an anti-Islam demonstration in February, called the decision "very unfair."
Britain's Home Office said, "Numerous comments made by Pastor Jones are evidence of his unacceptable behavior. 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."
