I hope this isn't true. I thought the West was meant to be the home of fee speech even if its right or wrong. All the world needs is more 						********					 restricting rules.

There is no such thing as "hate" crimes. It's a precursor to ThoughtCrime.

They are specifically banning members if they are coming to protest, not just because they are members.

they have the right to take their rights to enter the country.

The WBC says some very vile things, and anyone with common sense would want to ban them from doing what they do.

The issue in doing so is that you're placing limits on free speech. You're saying that it's okay to remove someone's rights as long as you have a good reason for it.

And while this is reasonable now, who's to say that unreasonable restrictions won't be justified in the future? Freedom means we must let others say and do things we do not like.

Sorry.

While i hate the westoboro baptist church just as much as anyone else, i don't think this is a good thing. Hateful or not, free speech is free speech, and when we start saying what speech is allowed and what is not, then its not really free speech anymore now is it? Its this kind of thinking combined with the slippery slope that creates a police state that controls its people instead of vice-versa. And i know people hate it when anyone ever compares anything to Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia, but this is EXACTLY the type of thing that went on in the teens-twenties of Russia and twenties-thirties in Germany until they became police states. I know the same probably wont happen with Canada and Europe, but limitation of freedom leads to loss of freedom.
I know ill get thumbed down for this because funnyjunk as a whole never seems to like to put much though in anything thats why content like "hurr durr justin beiber sucks, there's no good music anymore, hurr durr" gets frontpage all the time.
TL;DR this is not necessarily a good thing

Can somebody please explain this "Canadians are really polite / say sorry about everything" thingy?

Because a country that is generally well mannered and polite is a foreign concept for you Americans.   
   
And I am sorry for the above comment.

I can't be the only American here finding it disturbing that a government can ban you for saying things the public or it don't agree with.

I'm American and despite the fact that westboro is just a bunch of brainwashed ****** faggots, i don't think that should make it so there freedoms are taken away. They have a freedom of express and even though none of us like it including myself it's still there right. If you take their freedoms away, you set a precedent for anyone to have there freedoms taken away.

TL;DR If you take away someone's rights just because you don't like it, then anyone's rights can be taken away because you don't like them. Inb4 red thumbs

As a nation you are entitled to ban anyone you dislike from entering your country. People may get pissy with you if you do it but it is the same principle as not letting convicted criminals/terrorists or sex-offenders to cross your borders.

The only real difference is that the above three instances are convicted criminals with the chance for reformation whereas the members of the WBC are not only still active but the things they say are arguably liable to get them sued for harassment.

The UK has already banned them (since August 2009) and a number of religious organisations from within the UK have supported the decision.
