Westboro Baptist Church To Raise Funds for LGBT Equality

love hate t-shirt.jpg
Students can purchase and wear these shirts on Monday.
As reported earlier, the Westboro Baptist Church has scheduled a protest at Clayton High School on Monday, February 6. The WBC wants to publicly denounce the students and faculty for their inclusiveness and tolerance of others -- because they're dicks, you see -- and also because when the WBC do stuff like this it garners them media attention. They're such needy attention whores, aren't they?

Clayton High School intends to take the high road and treat this as a learning experience for the students. And if the idea of education was not already anathema to the hateful pricks, the WBC's protest will in fact raise funds for both the Gay-Straight Alliance and for Growing American Youth.

Ladies and gentlemen, that's how you rub shit in someone's nose while maintaining your own dignity.

The school's Gay Straight Alliance will have a booth set up the morning of the protest so that supporters can donate to the cause. Additionally, a Phelps-A-Thon -- named in honor of the WBC's chief dipshit, Fred Phelps -- has been organized online for those who don't attend the protest but do want to support the students. The Phelps-A-Thon allows you to pledge money for each minute the group protests, or you can donate a flat rate; donations from this will be given to Growing American Youth and the Human Rights Campaign.

CHS has a very informative web site up with details of the protest here, with guidelines for signs and t-shirts for all participants. Please note that the official theme of CHS' response is "Love Conquers Hate," and that the Gay-Straight Alliance requests that everyone "be respectful and mindful of the decisions that CHS students are making as they plan this event."

That's a very mature and civil response to the situation. It should thoroughly confuse the Westboro Baptist Church, who don't seem to be familiar with either concept.

After you flowery language, you ask us to be mature and civil?  That's great!

I wish that after the tornado in Joplin that we would have had something like this to support the people of Joplin. However, I can proudly say they never made it to the protest. but thousands of Joplin supporters showed up it was amazing to see.

It's rare that I can say I wish I could be back in STL, but as a member of the CHS class of '82 I wish I could have been there yesterday to see today's students and their friends in the community make the pathological Phelps family look silly. Proud to be a Greyhound!

Whenever a liberal uses PC Code words or phrases like "Diversity is "our" strength" or "I'm an anti-racist", these are code words for their divisiveness and bigotry.

Diversity is "their" strength. The "our" is inclusiveness of their goals not yours. Their goal is to create incompatible views and fractured populations which they know are more easily controlled. They don't seek social cohesiveness they seek radicals which are bent on destroying the culture and social structure of the majority. "Anti-racist" is another of their code words for "Anti-White". Liberals are communists. They are not bent on a socially conscious agenda. They are playing at social engineers that create fractured populations unable to come together with common force to oppose the communist elitism of the liberal. The liberal is a fraud selling bigotry, hatred, immoralisty, sense of entitlement to the lazy non-achiever, a warm and fuzzy world where someone else is responsible for laboring to support you, a no holds barred world where acceptable social norms are ostricised as "repressive". where no one has the right to hold you accountable to personal responsibility, a world where homosexuals and deviants are not plagued with disease, addiction or mental illness because of their lifestyle  but because of others failure to serve and accomodate them. The homosexual is a god to be appeased, a free thinker, not a retrobate and a denier of their own physcial design.

Too bad your own commentary can't be as respectful and positive in tone as the students at CHS. Although I agree with your point 100%, I think you have a pretty hyperbolic and offensive way of expressing it.   You could do a lot better.   Give it a try.   If we want civil discourse, we have to practice it.

Just pledged $100.00 in the Phelps-A-Thon.  What a bloody brilliant way to force these crazies to be a force for good in the world.

The Liberal pseudo-intellectual Communist/Fascist Dictator Dickhead agenda is on FULL DISPLAY here. Preaching "tolerance" only for their views but using words towards others they want to silence like:

"smash their face in""assholes""inbreds""kick their asses""Christian nuts""psychos""losers"

Liberals - you can't live with them but as soon as we can finally get this second civil war started you will be able to gut them and leave them swinging from a lightpost with their entrails trailing out from their slashed open stomach cavity.

XD  Very, very clever; whoever thought of this should get chocolate for life.  Or possibly the chance to send Mr. 'Communist_Manifesto' (commenting here) to the nearest vet to be neutered.  I'd help pay the vet-bills!

As someone who'd lived in Topeka Kansas for 30 years and watched the Westborrow Baptist Cult, inbreeders, I can say, it seems general knowledge here that the Phelps grandfather is the biological father of many of his grandchildren, a child abuser stretching back 40+ years and tax evader,  I can tell you the religeous aspect of  cult activities is totally a gimmick to raise funds by suing local and city governments when they ineffectively put up road blocks to the Phelpses.  They also raise money from collections from little old ladies who donate to the hate gay people mailings they distribute.  They are quite well off, and Daddy Fred controls it all.  Many of his own kids and grandchildren hate him for dragging them all around the country and making laughing stocks of them.  All of the adults in the church are forced to turn over their earnings to the church and evade paying taxes.  They and the grandchildren don't get what they want or need unless they please grandpa.  Its quite a cult.    And I agree, anyone using the Blessed Bible to condemn someone else, especially gay people doesn't ubterstand the messages in the Bible.  A lot of my fellow Christians are very ignorant about Biblical interpretations clinging to 17th and 18th century interpretations despite Biblical scholarship that is more accurate.  These Christians are themselves hate groups, as bad as the Phelpses.

For everyone who is here bashing the homosexual lifestyle, I suggest this article from the Rolling Stone.  Its really sad what is going on thanks to people like you and Michelle Bachman.  This is why you people really need to go stick your nose into your own bedroom and keep out of everyone elses. http://www.rollingstone.com/po...

Why are donations being given to the Human Rights Campaign? Those funds don't always stay in the state. Give the donations to another equal rights group that works for Missourians.

Religion is hard,  how do we survive in a world were people want to judge. Almost to a violent or self severing purpose. Religion has been bastardized over the centuries to serve whom ever purpose at the time. Obviously people still do it to this day. Christianity has adopted many pagan holidays as its own, wearing a mask. Mother earth still sustains us and give us all we need,what a mother. When the Salem witch trials took place you could accuse someone for any reason, and god righteous people thought they were doing "gods work". Guess that still hold true today. Many people have died in the name of their god, many people have killed in the name of their god, many have smited and passed judgment in the name of their god, Who are you? what mark will you leave? Dont be so self absorbed there are many different ways, many beliefs, many paths you can take, no one knows really what one is the right one. As far as the WBC is concerned,  it is written in the text you so boast to covet " We have free will " to do with our spiritual selves as we see fit. If your god himself cannot reach down and do as the omnipotent being he is and save us all from ourselves,what gives you the right? then I guess we have to believe in ourselves, and not judge others, Try saving your own soul's WBC

The Westboro Baptist Church is a disgrace to all Christians!!! They are a disgrace to all Baptist everywhere!!! I am a Baptist Christian and God does not bless hatred at all! I believe that many people will be greatly surprised when they go to Heavan!!! Its sad that the gay and lesbian movement has to deal with sooo much racism and hatred!!!

It would be nice if the RFT could write an article in a professional tone. 99% of the people are probably with you on this one, but your vocabulary (or lack thereof) make you seem equally childish and ignorant as the people you are trying to malign. You're performing a public service by letting us know about these rotten people, but you alienate your audience when you write like a bunch of 15-year-olds. Please grow up and learn to use a style guide...you know, like a journalist.

Why not just go to CHS and beat the ever living shit out of the WBC? Imagine your next job interview, "It says here you've been arrested, would you like to make any input about that?" "Yes, I assaulted the entire Westboro Baptist Church while they were protesting outside a high school." ".... You're hired!"

That's not even what a "sodomite" is you idiot. Get educated or don't talk. You sound like a backwoods inbred. The sin was treating others badly which is exactly what you are doing. Anyone see the article the other day about racism and predjudice being linked to a low IQ? lol! As if we didn't already know this!
