The Westboro Baptist Church, the creepy-horrible Kansas-based group whose members love God but hate basically everyone else, will be kicking off an anti-gay protest at Fort Greene's Brooklyn Technical High School in about an hour. Oddly, though the group's ideas are hideously backward, the language used to announce the event on their website, godhatesfags.com, was oddly contemporary:
“Yo what’s up, God haters?” the protest announcement reads. “Why you teach ‘It’s OK to be gay?’ WBC will be on hand to teach the rebels of Brooklyn what good looks like, and you had better behave."
One teacher at Brooklyn Technical High School, at least, is assuming they meant behave in the Austin Powers sense. “I’ll be sure to wear pink tomorrow, maybe some stretch pants,” Sean Shaynak told the paper yesterday. Though they don't expect violence, the NYPD will be there in full force, too.
