Holy crap. After all the bullshit it took to bring Rent to Corona Del Mar High School in Newport Beach, Calif., students will face one more obstacle: the performance theatre troupe known as the Westboro Baptist Church.
Fred Phelps lunatics plan to bring their “God Hates Fags” signs to the grounds of Corona Del Mar today, when the school debuts the student production of Rent, which Queerty was the first to tell you about in February when the principal, Fal Asrani, initially banned the production because it was too gay. (And they talk about AIDS, scary!)
After students and drama teacher Ron Martin finally received the OK from the administration to produce the show (and only after the media started throwing hot coals), the show goes on tonight at 7:30pm.
Except Corona Del Mar, already facing a lawsuit from the ACLU over tolerated homophobia and molestation accusations against a former teacher, now faces a scheduled 2:15pm protest from the seemingly-everywhere WPC.
Notes the schedule of this crazypants organization:
Corona del Mar High School – Jews Killed Jesus, love fags! 2101 Eastbluff Drive WBC to picket this High School, and the goofy Jewish bastards who pretend they have a cause against the Lord and against His anointed. Check out this good verse: Romans 11:11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. Is this what you blind Christ-rejecting Jews are protesting on behalf of? Latest news from Orange County reads: “A former Corona del Mar High School teacher has been charged with molesting two young girls and keeping hundreds of images of child pornography at his home, prosecutors said today.” Stop lying to these children, putting them into the hands of child molesters, repent while you can! “Rent” is but the catalyst for this epic event. AMEN!
Should help ensure a sold out show.
