For those of you unaware of the nature of some of the anti-gay marriage protestors that will be showing up at the happy events about to occur, let me point you to this website so you may prepare yourselves for the extreme nature of some of the opponents to gay marriage:|
This is the website of the Westboro Baptist Church, an extreme Baptist church based out of Topeka, KS. led by Rev. Fred Phelps. They travel around the country in their crusade against gays.
link to their general protest schedule:
link to PDF flyer about Cambridge, MA-specific protest:
I am confident that they (and, sadly, their small children) will be carrying the highly offensive signs shown in the flyer and other similarly offensive signs. Some of their signs in the past have included phrases like "Thank God for Spet. 11", "Hail Mary" (with one man bending another man over, mimicking a sexual position), and other such nonsense. Their signs are usually too graphic to show on the news, so I wanted to spread the word here.
<b>Please go to their website so you can be an informed citizen when their vitriolic, systemic march of hatred arrives in the first state in the nation to legalize gay marriage.</b>
Spread this post as wide as as far as you can.
