Fred Phelps and WBC Fool Canada


http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2008/Aug/09/redir.jpgYou have to hand it to Fred Phelps and his merry band of gay/USA bashers at Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka.The Canadians say they are on the look out for the group, who said they were going to protest an accident victim's funeral in the Great White North.But alas, the angry, hateful, but wiley Topekans fool the Canadians and slip into the country.Makes you tremble a bit if you're a Canadian citizen that their police and border officials can't keep out people who they know are coming.The Winnipeg Sun lets us in on the secret of the Phelps clan's success: Despite an attempt to stop them at the border, members of a fundamentalist U.S. church are in Manitoba and intend to picket Tim McLean Jr.'s funeral today, a spokeswoman for the group claimed yesterday. Shirley Phelps-Roper refused to say where Westboro Baptist Church members slipped past Canadian border guards or how many entered the country overnight Thursday... To avoid any suspicion at the border, WBC members did not have placards with them, said Phelps-Roper, daughter of church pastor Fred Phelps. They sent their signs into Canada by courier and picked them up after they arrived, she said....Thank God it was just placards and not enriched uranium the Phelpsites managed to pre-place for their little escapade.You can say a lot of things about old Fred but stupid is not one of them.Photo: Captains Bob and Doug MacKenzie of the Royal Canadian Immigration and Border Control Ministry?For more Kansas political news, views, and humor, go to Kansas Watch at http://kswatch.squarespace.com
