Westboro Baptist Church Does Blighty

THAT BASTION OF Christianity, compassion and good 'ole fashioned values, Westboro Baptist Church, is on its way to Britain. The group is planning to demonstrate at a performance of The Laramie Project in Basingstoke. The Laramie Project looks at the last days of 21 year old hate crime victim Matthew Shepard. "Y'all turned the world over to fags so you are coming back in body bags," says Shirley Phelps, spawn of founder Fred Phelps, when asked why her group is coming to the UK. Human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell says, "In the past they have threatened to picket events in Britain but they never turned up. They are such an absurd, fringe, fanatical group that it’s probably best to just ignore them." Since he doesn't use phrases like "y'all" I'm slightly more inclined to listen to him than Ms. Phelps (although maybe I'm biased - I was well hacked off not to get an invite to the wedding between Ms. Phelps and her brother, y'all). The Home Office was also obliged to make a statement: "The Government opposes extremism in all its forms... that was the driving force behind tighter rules on exclusions for unacceptable behaviour that the Home Secretary announced in October last year." Jolly good. Personally, I'm all for the Phelps cult descending on our little island. As Tatchell says, they're so absurd their loopy proclamations could only benefit homosexualists. Bring it on, y'all! Elsewhere: Coming to Britain, church with a mission to demonise homosexuals

Our sincerest apologies. We normally keep our loonies stateside.

Thing about this Phelps bunch, we try to ignore them, we really do -- but then they go abroad and embarass the fcuk out of us like a crackhead relative crashing a wedding in coochie shorts.

Again, our sincerest apologies.

Mister Siluwé sir, you got the Beckhams. Hosting your own toxic nutjobs for while is the least we can do.

(By the way, thanks for taking Madonna back, that bitch was *so* wearing).
