Fred Phelps: March 2009 Archives

March 20, 2009

Six-letter word too complicated for fundies

United Kingdom: Fred Phelps appears to not understand what is meant by the word "barred" and seems to believe that being banned from entry to the UK means that he will be able to picket a school in north east London next week.

A row broke out at George Tomlinson primary school in Waltham Forest, north-east London, earlier this month when some parents pulled their children out of lessons planned for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender history month. The school used books on homosexual relationships, in one case between two male penguins.

Members of the Westboro Baptist church in Topeka, Kansas – which has been the subject of a Louis Theroux television exposé – say they will picket the school next Friday afternoon.

Odds on, they're bullshitting to get attention, but we can dream of seeing them led away in chains and chucked into a detention centre before being deported on a plane chartered from Ryanair and full of drunk football fans.

What I don't understand is why Phelps is not allowed to enter the country, but another preacher of hate, with pretty much identical views on homosexuality, has been invited to visit the UK by the government.
