  • Anti-gay church to protest Ohio high school

    OHIO.com

    COLUMBUS: A representative of an anti-gay church says it plans to picket an Ohio high school next month purely because it was invited to the Columbus area to speak at a different school.

    The Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., is known for its demonstrations at military funerals. Church member Tim Phelps tells the Columbus Dispatch the suburban Hilliard Darby School was picked for a protest on May 10 not because it stood out in any way. He says it's just that when the church gets an invitation, it often chooses to picket in the area.

    Teachers at Worthington Kilbourne High School asked the church to send someone to speak before a class called U.S. Political Thought and Radicalism.

    The other school has alerted parents to the planned protest.
    Who in their right mind would invite these ****sticks to anything?

    Maybe it's an ambush?

      Maybe the school is trying to offset the effect of that show, Glee.

      Inmates seem really into counting the number of officers it took to take them down. If only their love of math had blossomed earlier.

          I would think such an invitation would violate the 1st. Amendment.

            Maybe there is a funeral that day and it is a diversionary tactic.

              Looks like it might be another fictitious Westboro Baptist storyby the AP. I looked at the link, it cites the dispatch.com, the dispatch doesn't have it as far as my search goes, no hits on Westboro.

                  It's weird that I didn't get a link, even tried 'Worthington'. It incredible that they would invite them to the area knowing that's what they do. They must be bored!

                      Yes I read it, maybe the previous time they didn't protest and the teachers have no clue.

                      Maybe they will invite The Jewish Defense League and the Hezbollah if this doesn't spark enough debate.

                          They were at one of our high schools here yesterday. Didn't hear of any problems. Their website has a schedule of their planned protests if you want to follow and tour with them or something...
                          They're planning on protesting at a couple of high school graduations coming up. It surprised me at first that they would have the nerve to ruin a kids graduation, then I remembered these are the animals that "protest" at funerals.

                            Here is their "reason" for showing up at one of our local colleges.

                            "Yet another year has gone by with the opportunity for another class to run from their sins. They instead continue to wallow in their proud sins with no thought of obedience or repentance. WBC will be there to waive her banners high and shine some truth on the situation. You think that finishing up a college education gives you wisdom. It means nothing in the eyes of God!"

                            "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. James 1:5"

                            "That is the only graduation gift you should be seeking. Obey or perish!"



                            Now I see they're going to picket at Arlington National Cemetery, on May 30th.

                              It's just a matter of time before someone gets shot.
