Back in 1955, Westboro Baptist Church, now known for their "God Hates Fags" protests, was just a ragtag group of gay haters looking for a few good followers. Since the Phelps clan hogs the limelight, it's easy to forget that outsiders are part of the cult.


In case you can't read the text, it says:

  • Independent
  • Fundamental
  • Premillennial

This Sunday afternoon at 2:30, the opening service of the new Westboro Baptist Church will be held. Each evening thereafter at 7:45 for two weeks, revival services will be held. Rev Fred Phelps, Pastor, will be the speaker.

Westboro Baptist... Premillennial before millennial was cool.
