Phelps.jpgFred Hates Fags. Loudly.

[wikipedia]Fred Phelps, also known as "that God-hates-fags guy," is pastor of Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) in Topeka, Kansas. What does this have to do with Davis? He's scheduled to come to Hillel House on February 5, 2010 at 2-3 PM to protest. He's also scheduled to be at Chabad from 9-10 AM on February 6, 2010. It should be interesting. Mark your calendars!

Hillel House respectfully requests that you DO NOT come to Hillel on Friday, Feb 5 for a counter protest against the Westboro Baptist Church, as no such counter protest will take place.

It is worth noting that the congregation (which is heavily composed of lawyers, including the now disbarred Fred Phelps himself) funds themselves through lawsuits against counter protesters provoked into physical action. They literally make a living pushing buttons and suing people for their response.

2010-01-24 15:55:03   I'm looking at getting something together to counter-protest. -J Zwald —JackZwald


2010-01-25 19:23:08   I am highly sympathetic, however I don't think creating a larger media circus is in your interest. I think really the fact that this person recieves any attention at all is a national disgrace. He should be ignored just like any other crazy street preacher or possibly laughed at at most.

Now if we went for an absurdit protest mocking Phelps and his ilk I would be in. If anyone has any unique/clever ideas about how to do so I'm all ears. —rfrazier


2010-01-31 18:14:06   The SF article is EXACTLY how these morons should be treated. When you meet their absurd hate with hate, you're playing their game, and you're putting yourself on their level.

Hating them is in a way acknowledging their position as if it's one formed by rational human beings, which it isn't. It's insane, and the proper counter for insanity is a full blown discordian/dadaist freak out.

Come on people - are we really going to let ultraconservative whack jobs push our buttons? The liberal/progressives have always been the kings of this game. We can one up their madness with greater and funnier madness of our own. —rfrazier


2010-01-31 20:08:37   If Hillel House doesn't want a counter protest I think their wishes should be respected. —rfrazier


2010-02-01 15:28:01   This guy is a monster. I like how the SF crowd responded when they protested in front of twitter. —DagonJones

Damn, it looks like someone has already used my angle. 2:48 and onward —StevenDaubert

Since you can't reason with these slapdicks, why not just thump a bible instead?

the Bible also says "A bastard shall not enter the gates of heaven, even unto the 10th generation"

"The faith that you have,´╗┐ keep between yourself and God. We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak" (Romans)

"Conduct yourselves wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time. Let your speech always be gracious" (colossians)


2010-02-05 02:50:53   These idiots should be completely ignored. Whenever this has happened in the past, they have moved on quietly since they thrive on media attention and without a counter protest, there is very little of it, they just get plain old bored.

Funny.. known of these guys for years and sat down today and watched a documentary on them by the bbc today ... they truly are in a class all their own.. Sad. —WesOne


2010-02-05 14:45:57   Truly funny. God must love Davis.. Thje WBC was snowed in at Topeka Kansas and will be unable to appear. Yes, a part of me is laughing completely. —WesOne
