Steven Anderson now has something else in common with snakes


He has been driven out of Ireland.

Pastor Steven L Anderson, who founded the Faithful Word Baptist Church in 2005, in Arizona, USA, was set to deliver a sermon in Dublin on May 26 as part of a short tour of Europe.

The Minister for Justice and Equality, Charlie Flanagan, has signed an exclusion order ‘with immediate effect under Section 4 of the Immigration Act 1999 in respect of Mr Steven Anderson, aka Pastor Steven L Anderson’.

(Note: this is cruelly unfair to snakes, who are much nicer than Anderson. Also, it’s a myth that snakes were driven out of Ireland, they never took up residence there in the first place.)

    I think there are some snakes in the Dublin Zoo.

    Kept in Level 3 biocontainment, probably.

    Could feed Pastor Steven L Anderson to a python, and solve two problems at once.

    Anderson tossed out of Ireland, Bannon kicked out of Italy, it’s almost as if people don’t want anything to do with neo-fascist swamp creatures.

    Except he paranoid clique now “governing” Italy are a lunacy† of fascists. Probably also swap monsters, but I wonder how cruel that is being to swap monsters.

      † Or what the collective is for nazis. A milkshakery?

    My, he just loves running around making friends and influencing people.

    In September 2016, Mr Anderson was banned from South Africa, the United Kingdom, and later deported from Botswana.

    Anderson was denied entry to Canada on November 10 2017, and later banned from entering Jamaica last year.

    He was banned from visiting the Netherlands this month.

    If both Anderson and Bannon were denied re-entry into the US, it would be a good thing. I know – wishful thinking.

  6. Sili says

    It’s honestly quite appropriate: the “snakes” that were driven out were supposedly the local Hiberno-christians who were at odds with the central power of Rome.

    I don’t see how. I mean, sure, no more Anderson, but now you’ve given a perfectly nice python massive indigestion!

    Forgot to write that my previous comment was directed at comment #1 by Snarki

    The same is true of Anderson – he never got into Ireland. I was among tens of thousands who signed a petition to the Irish government to exclude him. He might still sneak in, as I can’t see the UK government excluding him, so he could go to Northern Ireland. And for that matter, from there he could go to the Republic, as there’s (currently) no checks at the border.

    Tell me more about snakes in Ireland.

    Why wouldn’t there have been any? Are there no tasty rodents?
