Student Sells Out Gay Classmates, Invites Westboro Baptist Church to Protest School
Fort Zumwalt East High School students got the shock of a lifetime last week when they learned that the Westboro Baptist Church was on its way to come rage against the school’s gay students after being personally invited by one of their classmates.
“His email was to the effect of ‘We’ve got proud homosexuals strutting up and down the halls of this school. You’ve got to come,’” said Margie Phelps, an attorney for Westboro Baptist Church, and daughter to the pastor.
Phelps says 35 members of Westboro protested Sunday at the Super Bowl and are now on their way to the St. Louis area, where they’ll visit Fort Zumwalt East, followed by Clayton High School on Monday.
Clayton High School is of course the site of the totally amazeballs Phelps-a-Thon, the Gay-Straight Alliance’s fundraiser which will earn donations for every minute that the WBC protests outside of the school. This move by clever Clayton students is a total game-changer that completely turns Westboro’s hateful preaching upside down. If WBC protests earn cash for gay organizations, what is the point of showing up at all?
If any Fort Zumwalt East High School students are reading (Heeey!), might we suggest getting in touch with Clayton students ASAP to organize your own Phelps-a-Thon?
And to the brat who invited a hate group to come torment his gay classmates – Shame on you.
Why would somebody do such a mindlessly cruel thing?
