    Im pretty disgusted by this, I know people are affected by this everywhere but I and the city I live in haven't really been exposed to such hatred. I know Wichita, KS in itself is not the best gay friendly city to live in, but I have yet to have any problems when it comes to my sexuality. So, The Phelps and there "clan" so to speak, are coming to protest in front of a local high school. I believe this is going over board, especially since kids are involved. Are they going to start targeting middle schools next?! Anyway, this is what they have said on their site (www.godhatesfags.com):


    "Wichita High School Southeast - Full of every filthy bird! 903 S. Edgemoor St We are coming to Bible-bleak Wichita, to picket you "WEST SIDE!" (that's what your little brat gang bangers hollar) Perverts! All your ?choices? ? in the gutter All they taught you is how to screech and stutter Serve Obama ? in his army full of fags Try to make a living ? you?ll end up in rags Rebel child, God hates you These plain words, we?re here to tell Bible stupid ? makes God angry Read the words ? for riz-zle hell! We hear tell that this High School has both a fag club and a bible club. Tell me you are kidding. Please tell me that you dumb asses are not actually going to pretend that you have anyone at that school who ever cracks a Bible! Oh no you did NOT just confess your stark sins. Let me remind the readers that Wichita is the most violent, filthy, corrupt city in Western Kansas. And you know that famous city of Dodge is farther west - that was where Wyatt Earp was Sheriff. YES! Wichita is worse than old Dodge City. Here is the picture of Wichita: Revelation 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. You may be asking yourself, "Wichita is worse than New York?" YES! Wichita is worse because in New York they don't claim to be God-fearing. Here you go, you bible-toting fag-enablers: Revelation 3:14 ¶ And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Either open those Bibles, and do your Leviticus 19:17-18 duty to those fags in that school OR SHUT UP CALLING YOURSELVES BIBLE BELIEVERS - God will SPUE THEE OUT! AMEN!"

    There are several other places they'll be visiting, be sure to check out the upcoming picket schedule to see if they'll be near you, just so your in the know and could possibly protest against them.

    Sorry for the longggg post, but I find this serious.icon_evil.gif
    And Disgusting.

    If they show up. They were supposed to come here to Fort Lauderdale recently, but didn't. Phelps has a history of doing that, apparently to get publicity without having to do anything.

    The gay protest against him here was quickly scaled back when it was learned he likely wouldn't appear (some wanted to cancel it completely). But the protestors did appear in the local news, which gave Phelps free publicity. One could argue it was bad publicity, but that's not how he thinks.

    Your Wichita community might want to monitor this, and consider their options if he's not coming after all. We found out the truth by checking his web site, and discovered he was attending another event on the same day he'd announced to the media he would be in Fort Lauderdale. At present I do see him coming to Wichita, however, using this correct link:

    I lived in Topeka Kansas less than 3 blocks from thier compound. It's a great sight with it's 10' fencing around it. As I lived there I ran into them at least once a week picketing the capital, the college, the schools, and yes even funerals. I kept a special CD in my car. When I saw them they heard "WE ARE FAMILY" blasting.

    Since then I have seen them on the news and seen them picketing all over. This group and thier HATE will not stop picketing. there is no reasoning with them, and they fight every step in the courts. I will say one thing good abotu them. They believe in what they preach. Even if it's soo wrong.

    As for picketing in Wichita, I lived there too for a very long time and this is not the first time. I even rallied against them When I was Mr. KGRA 05. Best thing is to ralley the local gays, and all the students and counter them. this typically brings out the press and well It only shows how wrong they are and how right our cause it. Stand tall and PROUD.

    Do people still fret over them?

    It took me a long time but I came to a certain inner peace with their views.... I feel that is the only way to win with them: Not having the guilty feelings of having to justify my sexual orientation.

    The article states the WBC and Phelps plan on picketing in England I question where they get the money for this type of travel. Back last year thier were fined MILLIONS in a lawsuit.

    I hope he gets to England and they kickhis ass in jail.




    A small religious community from Kansas notorious for picketing funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq have said they are to protest in England.

    Westboro Baptist Church is led by Rev Fred Phelps.

    Among the events on the 'picket schedule' on their website godhatesfags.com is a performance of The Laramie Project in Basingstoke next week.

    "In Merry Old England they plan to further enrage the Living God by putting on the farce known commonly as The Laramie Project.

    "We will picket them, and see if they actually believe those lies they tell about how tolerant and accepting Brits are.

    "RIIIIGHT! Just because you rage against God and make laws that say you cannot use "hate speech" (a/k/a - you may not speak of the Bible standards) in the UK does NOT mean you will not get the message that God Almighty intends for you to get.

    "God Hates England; Your Queen Is A Whore; You Hate God; God Hates You; You're Going to Hell; Matt Is In Hell; Hell Is Real Ask Matt; God Hates Fags (Buggers); Obey God, etc.

    "Some of the best Bible preaching in the history of the world came out of that dark dismal land, but now it is full of all abominations!

    "God will shortly destroy the UK and the world, but not until they have gotten the plain, clear message so that they will be WITHOUT EXCUSE!"

    This latest rant is unlikely to lead to an actual protest - in any case causing fear or distress is a public order offence in England.

    In the US, Westboro protesters have first amendment rights to freedom of speech.

    The church members, who are mostly relations of Mr Phelps, regularly picket funerals claiming the deaths are God's punishment for the country's support of homosexuals.

    They have caused so much distress picketing at funerals of soldiers killed in action that they have been restricted from doing so in 22 states.

    The group first came to prominence more than a decade ago when they protested a the funeral of murdered gay man Matthew Shepard.

    In October 1998 Matthew was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming.

    Five weeks later members of the Tectonic Theatre Project went to Laramie, and over the course of the next year, conducted more than 200 interviews with people of the town.

    From these interviews they wrote the play The Laramie Project, a chronicle of the life of the town in the year after the murder.

    Westboro Baptist Church, based in Topeka, Kansas, runs numerous websites such as GodHatesFags.com, GodHatesAmerica.com and others expressing condemnation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, Roman Catholics, Muslims and Jews.

    He won't be allowed in the country.

    From yesterdays BBC News

    LONDON (AFP) — Britain faced criticism on Friday for refusing entry to a far-right Dutch politician accused of inciting anti-Islamic hatred.

    Geert Wilders, who has sparked a firestorm with his short film "Fitna," was sent back home on a plane on Thursday a few hours after being detained by immigration officials on arrival at Heathrow airport.

    The Home Office said he was turned back to stop him spreading "hatred and violent messages".


    And that's from an actual member of Parliament from another EU country, not some religious nutcase from Kansas.

    They are an entire family of lawyers, the appeals cases for their million dollar fines are probably circling court eternally. Plus they have a certain amount of protection under the first amendment
