There are truly no words for this.
As if poor Constance McMillen hasn't been through enough with the deplorable and disgusting discrimination she's faced regarding her school prom, the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church announced that it plans on picketing her graduation!
The press release says:
“[We] will picket the graduation of Itawamba Agricultural High School to remind the parents, teachers and students of this nation that God said 'Thou shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind, it is abomination.' This generation has been raised to believe that they can live for the devil and still go to heaven, that God has no standards and the biggest lie of all – that God loves everyone.”
It truly saddens us to think that there are people in this world who could be capable of this kind of hatred and believe that is all in the name of a higher power.
Stay strong, Constance! You've already come this far!
