Mass Anti-Gay Protest in UK Fails

In Basingstoke, England, Queen Mary’s College decided to put on a theatre production of “The Larmie Project,” a show about a man who is killed for his sexual orientation.

The Westboro Baptist Church, based out of Topeka, Kansas decided that this was unacceptable. The church’s website (godhatesfags.com) called for a mass-protest of the play saying, “In merry old England they plan to further enrage the living God by putting on the farce known commonly as The Laramie Project.”

However, all members of the church who attempted to travel to England for the protest, were banned by the UK from entering, including Westboro leader Fred Phelps. As it turns out, only one actual native England-er wasphe1 willing to protest, and he left quickly after seeing pro-gay demonstrators also their for the event.

    There is a special place in hell for the Westboro Baptist Church. Fred Phelps and Shirley Phelps are both two of the biggest idiots. Good thing NOBODY takes them seriously. I was very happy to hear about them being denied entry though…
