The "Million Fag March" will take place on March 30, 2008 in Topeka, Kansas. The march is intended to protest the hate that consistently spews forth from the Westboro Baptist Church, and its founder, Fred Phelps.
The church bases its work around the belief expressed by its best known slogan and the address of its primary website, "God hates fags", and expresses the idea, based on its Biblical eisegesis, that nearly every tragedy in the world is linked to homosexuality – specifically society's increasing tolerance and acceptance of the so-called "Homosexual Agenda." The group maintains that God hates homosexuals above all other kinds of "sinners" and that homosexuality should be a capital crime.
I see these bastards every year at the "Southern Decadence" celebration in New Orleans - and they are pretty sad excuses for human beings. They will set up shop right in the middle of this huge gay event, in hopes of provoking debate and/or fights. Most queens simply ignore them, which is probably the best thing you can do. Although I must say, after a hot and humid day in New Orleans - and a few dozen cocktails - I've been VERY tempted to punch one of these assholes in the face. Luckily that hasn't happened - so far.
So for goodness sakes, if you are ANYWHERE near Topeka on March 30 - go and march against these fuckers - and let them know what God REALLY hates - HATE.
