Yes, yes, she who hates protesting is actually planning to attend a protest.
Well, a counter-protest.
Fred Phelps, the "God hates fags" guy, is coming to Walt Whitman high school to protest the fact that the high school is named after Walt Whitman and Walt Whitman might have been gay, though I don't think anybody's sure. (Though admittedly Oscar Wilde had strong opinions on the subject.)
Clearly the homosexuals of this world need to have some more parades or something, because poor Phelps is running out of stuff to protest.
So some of my friends and I are going and I want a snarky slogan about peace and love or something because if I'm going to go, I might as well have a sign.
My initial urge is to make a sign that says "God hates protesters" and then wear a t-shirt that says "except me." But that sounds like the sort of thing that is funnier in my head.
I've always liked "God bless the whole world, no exceptions"
and there's "For every anti-Gay protestor I see, I'm giving ten bucks to PFLAG"
I have a little too much dignity to show up as the confused person who was looking for the "God hates Figs" protest, though I appreciate the humor value.
I also kinda like "God hates Nora Ephron movies" but that would be hilarious to literally only me.
A gay friend of mine once carried a sign that said "Homosexual Agenda - Spend Time with Family - Be Treated Equally - Buy Milk" but that's not quite on point and it's too long.
Anyway, I'm open to suggestions and if I get more than a couple I will forward this thread around to my friends who are also attending.
If you're in the DC area and you'd like the details on where and when it will be or would like to donate to a "Phelps-a-thon" that gives money to gay causes for every minute the protest goes on, Click here. I've already donated.
Getting back to studying now, she swears.
Update: "God Hates Nora Ephron Movies" has proved very popular among my law school buddies, but I think the "If God hates all the same things you do, you should probably re-examine your faith" point is a little subtle for these folks.
