Preaching hell to the chief: Westboro makes Jan. 20 plans

by Jeremy Hooper

This from The Washington Blade:

..the National Park Service has granted Fred Phelps and co. a protest permit for the inauguration. The church "will have 15 people at the northeast corner of John Marshal Park protesting military funerals and gays until the parade clears," the park service said.
Inauguration protest permit granted ... to Westboro [Blade Blog]

200901071247-1It remains to be seen what sort of wacky antics we'll get from the first family of gay hate. Though if we were betting types, we'd put money on lots of signs playing on the words "obama nation," lots of chants about Barack being the antichrist, plenty of predictions about the world's fiery end, and the only four inaugural balls on their minds being the ones that exist in Barney Frank's celebratory bed.

What can we say? We know our Westboro.

Your thoughts

I think the Phelpseses were actually invited to Bill Clinton's first inagural ball. Not sure if they went.
