As we report in today's Birmingham Post, MP Richard Burden (Lab Northfield) has posed a series of questions to the Home Secretary asking her to investigate a controversial American preacher who is due to speak in Birmingham next month.
Pastor John Hagee believes the Holocaust was part of God's plan to force Jews to return to Israel and claims Hurricane Katrina was divine punishment for a planned gay pride rally.
He is due to speak at Birmingham Symphony Hall, in the city centre, at a rally on August 19 and two seminars on August 20. Tickets are being sold at £10 each through his website.
I thought it was worth setting out exactly what Pastor Hagee has said to prompt Mr Burden's reaction, in more detail than we were able to include in the print edition of the paper.
