The Crazies are Coming!

According to a story posted in the Albany Times Union, Fred Phelps' extreme fundamentalist Westboro Baptist Church is sending a group of its members to Albany. On Friday, November 20th Albany High School's drama Department will be staging a production of "The Laramie Project", the story of a young college student who was beaten to death because he was gay. The Westboro Baptist Church representatives will be on hand at the event to protest the staging of the play in particular, and the existence of homosexuals in general, based on their unhinged religious beliefs.

Members of the Capital Region Atheists and Agnostics Meetup Group are considering a counter-protest, and will be discussing the possibility (among many other things) at their November 19th get-together at Professor Java's on Wolf Road.
