The Fun Never Ends

According to the school newspaper, the University of Chicago is expecting a visit by the Westboro Baptist Church on March 9. They will be protesting because the University once upon a time employed Barack Obama, whom they call the antichrist.

Um . . . WTF? Should I go and take pictures?

*Blink*

Ok then.

Well, God Bless America where anyone can protest anything freely anytime. And where I am free to ignore people doing that.

I could probably get to see them live and in person. I checked their schedule, and they'll be near the campus at about the time that I need to get down there to TA. This'll be interesting . . .

Yeah, a lot of people evidently think he's the Antichrist.

Of course, the WBC think that anyone who's not them is the Antichrist, so they're probably not the most credible witnesses for that bit.

So, how many anti-Christs are there? Because just tonight at dinner a friend noted that the Pope is the anit-Christ. Not his opinion; he was just relaying some of the fringe (I hope!) opinions he gets to hear at work.

Aren't they the delightful people who believe that all gays should be burned at the stake, alongside anyone who supports gay rights?

Is there anything in particular that Obama has done to warrant being the Antichrist?

Well, that's a mild version of their views, but, yes. That's them. Obama has done nothing to warrant being the Antichrist that I can think of except perhaps 1) not being entirely white, 2) being a Democrat, and 3) not being a member of the Phelps family.

How exciting! Please go and poke them with pointy sticks. (Although my tiny, rational bit of brain says not to give them any attention because they don't deserve it. Oh, hell, take pictures too!)

I think I will take pictures. After all, it's not something you see every day.
