6. Sounds like another one of the Deplorables to me.

I'd want him banned, too, if he was trying to spread that cancer to other shores.

First of all, this dude is NOT spreading the Message of Christ. Or at least the Christ I learned about in Catholic school. That Christ is inclusive, loving, tolerant, not judgmental. He hung out with the societal rejects of the day - those at whom everyone else looked down their noses and shunned. Poor people, sick people (including the untouchables like those with leprosy), tax collectors - whom nobody liked. He made it a point to do that. Loved and accepted and included and did not reject. His Message was for THEM, TOO.

THIS asshole - perverts and defiles the Message of Christ. And they're right to deny his entry. Having said that, I realize that I, too, kinda am doing that same thing. Excluding. Condemning. Well, yeah. Guilty as charged. 'Cause Christ's Message was for ALL. So it's a conundrum. But in this case, I side with the victims of the persecution, rather than the persecutors.
