Question of the Week

This week five members of Westboro Baptist Church journeyed to the University of Massachusetts Amherst to protest newly out basketball player Derrick Gordon.  Had a part of you hoped that when Fred Phelps died his followers would quit their daffy protests?

Stone Dead

Officials in the southeast Asian country of Brunei must think things have gotten too lax in their neck of the woods.  Reportedly nobody has been put to death in Brunei since 1957, but that's gonna change with the new penal code that's kicking in next week.

If you have gay sex you will be sentenced to death by stoning.  If you commit adultery, rape, murder, insult the Quran, declare yourself a prophet or declare yourself a non-Muslim--allegedly all these varied offenses will result in death by stoning.

Such a panoply of sins.  If you're a gay Christian harboring the schizophrenic belief that you're a prophet, best to cross Brunei off your list.

Hate Goes North

Peter LaBarbera is wildly anti-gay.  He's the president of "Americans for Truth About Homosexuality," a group whose members wouldn't know truth if it danced naked in front of them.  And maybe it should.

Anyway, yesterday LaBarbera flew to Regina, Saskatchewan, to give a speech at the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association convention.  But the Canadian Border Service Agency decided to deny him entry to the country because he's a purveyor of "hate propaganda," a no-no under Canadian law.

That decision was reversed, however, and LaBarbera is now in Regina, presumably vilifying gays, per usual.  Perhaps he'll say something unforgivable that will get him chucked out of Canada for real, something Canadian authorities cannot tolerate--like hockey sucks.
