Fred Phelps and his merry gang of ghouls and bigots say they’re going to protest at the graduation of Constance McMillen, the young lesbian girl in Mississippi whose school and fellow students treated so abominably.
The Westboro Baptist Church, which has drawn jeers for picketing at soldiers’ funerals and on Tuesday cheered the deaths of 12 tornado victims in Mississippi, said in a statement last weekend that they will be on hand for Constance McMillen’s high school graduation ceremony, the Advocate reported.
“[We] will picket the graduation of Itawamba Agricultural High School to remind the parents, teachers and students of this nation that God said ‘Thou shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind, it is abomination,’” the group declared.
Funny, that verse only seems to mention male homosexuality. In fact, the Bible doesn’t say anything against lesbianism at all specifically — God being male, obviously, and therefore enjoying the sight of two hot chicks in the throes of passion just like the rest of the male population. You can almost hear the celestial choirs of angels singing “bow chicka wow wow” in the background, can’t you?
To be serious for a moment, I think if the group actually does show up to protest — they frequently announce that they’ll be protesting this or that and then don’t show up, presumably because they’re busy inbreeding the next generation of family fucktards — it could actually end up being a good thing.
As terrible as the behavior of the school, the students and the parents were, the behavior of the Phelps gang is far more extreme. And I’ve seen even those who are relatively bigoted against gays express genuine revulsion at their behavior. But the leap isn’t all that far from one to the other and it could lead at least a few people in that community to see their own side of the fight taken to such a vile extreme that it pushes them in the other direction. Or maybe I’m just feeling less cynical than usual tonight for some reason.
