Fred Phelps’ Westboro Baptist Church is coming to town, and I couldn’t be happier.
The “God Hates Fags” clan from Topeka, Kan., has announced plans to be in Atlanta for two days in April to protest targets ranging from the NCAA Basketball “Final Four” at the Georgia Dome on April 6 to three congregations — Creflo Dollar’s World Changers Church International in Atlanta, Beulah Missionary Baptist Church in Decatur, and Basilica of The Sacred Heart of Jesus in Atlanta — April 7.
“You won’t go into the Final Four Atlanta orgy-of-gross-drunken-nasty-reveling without being warned by the faithful servants of WBC, with this core message, timely and topical at this hour: Fag marriage dooms nations,” the pseudo-church warns on its website.

Megan Phelps-Roper, the granddaughter of Westboro Baptist Church's Fred Phelps, and her sister Grace have split from the anti-gay church known for picketing the funerals of deceased U.S. servicemembers and other events with signs that read “God Hates Fags” and “Fags Doom Nations.”
The announcement came via Medium.com, where Megan offered an explanation of how she came to disagree with her family's ministry and apologized for her past anti-gay statements and actions.
A new mockumentary video from writer/director Chris McGuire pokes fun at the notoriously anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church by profiling its offshoot, the even more anti-gay (if that were possible) Eastboro Baptist Church.
Led by Westboro founder Fred Phelps' brother Frank, the Eastboro Baptist Church aims to seriously bring the hate, in a not-at-all-gay kind of way.
From the video's YouTube description:
Dissenters of the Westboro Baptist Church have broken away and formed a new, more radical hate group. Led by Reverend Frank Phelps, their guerrilla tactics pose the most serious threat to the survival of the LGBT community!
Savannah gay activists are gearing up for a rally when the "God Hates Fags" church rolls into town on May 22 to hold a protest at several local churches with plans to return to Savannah on May 27 to protest high schools.
Act Out Savannah, an LGBT activist group, is already organizing a "Rally Against Hate" to be held May 22, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the First Baptist Church, one of the churches WBC will be protesting.
A planning meeting for the rally is set for Thursday, May 5, at 6:30 p.m. at 2226 Whitaker St.
"A peaceful protest against bigotry, prejudice and violence will be held in direct response and defiance of the Westboro Baptist Church's continued mission to bring pain, suffering and humiliation to others in the guise of religion," states a press release from Act Out Savannah.
