HATE

The Laramie Project, a powerful play about the brutal killing of Matthew Shepard, a gay Wyoming college student, opened at the community college in Rio Nada last night.

Soon it was discovered that the Phelps family, a group of HATEmongers from Kansas that run the Westboro "Baptist" "Church" were planning on making an appearance at the Rio Nada opening, just as they have done many times across the country.

You've probably seen the Phelps' on TV. They're the ones with the signs that say "God Hates Fags!" and "Mathew Shepard Deserved to Die!".

Lately they've been showing up at the funerals of American soldiers killed in the Middle East wars because God has told them that these deaths are His punishment for the U.S. and it's position on homosexuality.


300 or so people of all ages, colors, creeds and orientations stood for a silent counter-demonstration just outside the Landis Performing Arts Center. The demonstration was "organized" by a late-afternoon EMail that quickly made the cyber-rounds to many of the decent citizens of our fair metropolis.

The police were there too.

The cowards never showed their pernicious faces. It was said they were stuck in traffic.

From the stinking ooze they came and sat for hours on the I-10 in their own miserable filth.

And the show went on.

That's quite a schedule. I only hope it costs them millions to make these jumps across the country.

Check out the photos on their website.
It must take a lot of energy to be this ugly all the time.
