Westboro Baptist Church targets New Hampshire theater

On the website, a Westboro Baptist Church action protesting the performance of The Laramie Project at Seacoast Rep in Portsmouth is slated for next week. It's unclear whether this protest will actually happen; WBC has threatened protests around here before, but has never delivered. Nevertheless, worth being aware of. Here's what the site says:


Seacoast Repertory Theatre in Portsmouth, NH    February 23, 2011  6:15 PM - 7:00 PM

WBC will picket those attending "The Laramie Project" at the Seacoast Repertory Theatre where they encourage their neighbor to sin.  New Hampshire has distinguished itself as a filthy place where fags and dykes can get "married".  It's not surprising then that they would try to palm off this piece of lying fag propaganda as art.  The only goal of this production is to advance the agenda of the militant sodomites who will not rest until every person bows down and kisses their backsides.  But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.  There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.  (Isa. 57:20-21.)

If any person attending this event has ears to hear and eyes to see, LISTEN TO THESE WORDS.  Matthew Shepard, like the rich man in Luke 16, wants you to LISTEN TO WBC. 

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham?s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.  And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.  But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.  And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.  Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father?s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.  (Lk. 16:22-28.)

Listen to Matthew Shepard crying to you from hell!
