Phelps clan targets Midland

Posted By on Thu, Nov 4, 2010 at 12:05 PM

The Westboro "Baptist Church" has notified the Independence County sheriff's office that they'll have a "public demonstration/outdoor religious service" at 2 p.m. Nov. 10 outside Midland High School "regarding the judgment of God with respect to the dangers of promoting homosexuality and the rest of the filthy manner of life and idol worshipping of this nation."

The Phelps family is best ignored. I hesitate to promote them here. I just hope that people in Pleasant Plains can do the same. Or at least, in the case of some who turned out for counter-demonstrations in support of former school board member Clint McCance after his anti-gay remarks on Facebook, resist the temptation to join them.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
