Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church will be in Helena to protest Helena’s “pro-gay” churches (including a Baptist church and the Catholic cathedral) and the Montana Supreme Court (“People’s Republic of Sodom.”)
I plan to participate in any counter-protests. But I’d like a sign on a stick that is funny and can be read by passerby going 30 miles an hour.
I though this response from the local Catholic church was pretty cool:
Monsignor Kevin O’Neill, of the Helena Diocese, called the group reprehensible and labeled its statements as vile and hate-filled.
“They don’t seek to reside within the truth,” O’Neill said. “Theirs is a narrow, bigoted mind, and you have to pray for them.”
O’Neill said that while the church does not condone or promote the homosexual lifestyle, it does not discriminate against the sexual orientation of the individual.
