The Pic: Constance McMillen, an 18-year-old senior at Itawamba County Agricultural High School, is being targeted by a hate group that plans to picket at her graduation.
The Buzz: A Mississippi lesbian who was denied the chance to go to her school's prom is now being targeted by a Kansas-based hate group - and it is going to protest at her graduation. The Westboro Baptist Church, which has drawn jeers for picketing at soldiers' funerals and on Tuesday cheered the deaths of 12 tornado victims in Mississippi, said in a statement last weekend that they will be on hand for Constance McMillen's high school graduation ceremony, the Advocate reported.
The Reason: "[We] will picket the graduation of Itawamba Agricultural High School to remind the parents, teachers and students of this nation that God said 'Thou shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind, it is abomination,'" the group declared.
And here we have evidence sufficient to know that Christianity as we know it is a fiction. Otherwise, Phelps et al would be on the receiving end of a vigorous smiting.
