Hot anti-gay action!

Did you read the Detroitist today? Because he did a write-up on a gay-related issue and saved me the time.

Fred Phelps and his caravan of crazy ( are coming to Grosse Pointe (of all places) to protest GP South High School's production of "The Laramie Project" next month. Read Detroitist's report here.

When Phelps was in Ann Arbor a few years ago Martin and Keith at the /aut/ bar came up with this idea to get people to pledge money for every minute that Phelps and company protest. "Every Minute Counts" eventually became a popular counter-protest to the Phelps brigade all around the country. Nice job, fellas.

Here's the picket schedule comment - you can't make this shit up!

11/21/08 - 2:45 - 3:30pm Grosse Pointe South High School - God Hates You! 11 Grosse Pointe Blvd That's right, these little turkeys believe they can change the fact that Matthew Sheperd is in hell, 10+ years now. Lot's of luck on that one. If you wanna go to hell, then follow his example! Mt 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: AMEN!

Maybe we should do an "Every Minute Counts" for this? We can give money to a worthy gay charity, like Supergay Detroit or something! Or maybe something possibly more worthy, like Triangle Foundation or Ruth Ellis Center. I dunno, just tossing that out there. What do you think?

I did not make this graphic but it's funny as hell.

I love the idea! Maybe Ruth Ellis House is most appropriate. However Supergay, everyone should pay you for sharing your wisdom.

I love this idea too.

I went to South, now living in DC. When I heard that they were doing The Laramie Project I was in awe. I can't believe Phelps is going to Grosse Pointe. I almost want to go back to counter protest, but alas, no money...

If you can organize this, count me in for $1 a minute for the Ruth Ellis House (or other worthwhile cause of your choice).

I wonder how much money gay organizations have raised because of Phelps shenanigans? He should be honored with a man of the year award from HRC or something because nobody has done more to mainstream gay rights like Fred Phelps. U.S. servicemen killed in battle? Homos now buring in hell. Mr. Rogers? As gay as Liberace and in hell. Jerry Fawell? A gay-loving resident of hades.

Fred Phelps in Grosse Pointe? Are you kidding me, I'm going show up for the unintentional comedy.

It is awesome that he inadvertently helps the gay community raise money, except we have to keep spending the money fighting assholes like him instead of on useful things like vodka and condoms.

In an interview, I heard Fred Phelps describing the intricacies of homosexual sex and he just went on and on until even I blushed.

He arrantly has spent vast amounts of time thinking about it. .. And of course how much it bothers him.

How do I donate?
