Stand Up America, a Florida-based group affiliated with Jones, said he was going to speak out against what the group called radical elements of Islam. It said his visit to Britain was to be part of a European tour.
Britain’s Home Office said that Jones has been “excluded from the U.K.” because the British government opposes extremism in all its forms.
“Numerous comments made by Pastor Jones are evidence of his unacceptable behavior,” it said in a statement. “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.”
