God-Hates-Fags Group to Protest AU

The Westboro Baptist Church will be protesting at American University this Friday, January 14th. From the AU Eagle Online student paper:
The Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., released a statement Jan. 5 saying they will protest the “fag-infested, pervert-run” school between 4 and 4:45 p.m.

The group also plans to picket the Islamic Center and diplomat Richard Holbrooke’s memorial at the Kennedy Center earlier in the day.

“American University, like all the other universities in this country now, are teaching rebellion against God 101, 201 … you’ve got advanced degrees,” said Shirley Phelps-Roper, a member and attorney of WBC.

In a telephone interview Friday night, she said universities are not educating students properly.

“You children have been taught that God is a liar, that if you’re not fornicating your day away, you’re just a freak,” she said. “These people have taught you that it’s OK to be gay.” Westboro Baptist Church to protest at AU Jan. 14

Yeah, whatever. I see there is a counterprotest Facebook page with, so far, 1,279 people saying they will attend. Could be a circus.

Here's a picture I found online from a recent time that the Phelpses came to our region:

The one in the middle is my kid, btw. Apple, tree, etc.

for those of you new to the site, TTF has a sick co-dependency relationship with WBC, a fringe group from Kansas whose members are mostly from one family

WBC blames virtually everyone in the country for the encroaching gay agenda and this pleases TTF immensely

Jim is the local guy who notifies the public whenever WBC will be appearing anywhere within a couple of hours drive

why so obsessed, Jim?

do you believe they represent any significant segment of our society?

surely, some more novel entertainment will be available locally next Friday

Anon, it seems to really bother you that these people are so direct about expressing what you say here every day in veiled terms.

Why do you say that?

I think they must be paid by a lunatic fringe homosexual advocacy group since they do so much to advance their interests.

For those of you new to this site, the venom and hatred spewed constantly by "Anonymous" (in various guises) here, over and over and over, is stomach-turning and pseudo-Christian.

I don't act as a publicist for WBC

TTF does

these guys from WBC have a strategy of provocation, hoping counter-protestors show up and over-react

TTF plays into their plan

Here you go Anon, I'll announce another show by the Phelps team: Westboro Baptist Church, the Topeka church known for its inflammatory anti-gay protests, plans to picket the funerals of the six people gunned down in Arizona on Saturday.

In a flier posted on its web site, the controversial church writes, "THANK GOD FOR THE SHOOTER -- 6 DEAD!

If I were you, "Anonymous" I would not be so proud to announce myself as an apologist for these W.B.C. lunatics! Company you keep and all of that.

me, an apologist?

explain that stretch of your imagination (ha-ha)

Jim loves those guys

the opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference

What "Anonymous" displays here day after day is his homophobia. He'd love gays if they'd stop being gay.

We'd love you too "Anonymous" if you'd stop being homophobic.

"Jim loves these guys"

Oh, are really grasping at straws these days, "Anonymous". That is really an effective debate argument!

Infantilism and just plain stupidity don't win any supporters for your point of view and, in fact, lead to the complete degredation of any shred of respect anyone might have had for you.

Get a life!
