Anderson Can't Take His Show on the Road

Pastor Steven Anderson has uttered so many appalling anti-gay statements he must be the love child of Fred Phelps and Phyllis Schlafly.  After the Orlando massacre, Anderson celebrated "there's 50 less pedophiles in this world."

Anderson, the leader of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Ariz., was readying to take his brand of Christian love to South Africa.  Today that country said don't bother.  South African Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba, citing anti-discrimination laws meant to "prevent and prohibit hate speech," said he's banning Anderson from South Africa indefinitely.

Bet Tempe wishes it could do the same.
