Divisive!? Did he say divisive? They're being divisive because they are putting on a play? It's not like they're burning the Massachusetts Constitution or advocating removal of Supreme Court Justices because that's not divisive, oh no. Also, so the play about a boy who was tortured and killed because he was gay is vile. Thanks Brian for clearing that one up.
Brian Camenker of Newton, president of Article 8 Alliance - an organization formed to remove state justices who support gay marriages - said that Phelps' proposed visit shouldn't come as a surprise.
"The play is about Phelps, so for him to want to protest it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone," said Camenker.
Camenker said he doesn't agree with Phelps' "whacked-out Calvinist" agenda, but understands the anger toward "The Laramie Project."
"It is a vile play - it is basically gay-propaganda full of a bunch of lies," said Camenker. "Why can't they do the 'Sound of Music?' Why do they have to do this kind of stuff that is so divisive?"
He also said it was "gay propaganda full of a bunch of lies." Brian, what part of "The Laramie Project" is a lie? The part where they strung Matthew Shepard up on a fence and left him to die? The part where Fred Phelps and his clan protested Matthew's funeral? The play was written from interviews with the towns people of Laramie.
Brian, the play isn't divisive your statement is.
