Pastafarians 1, Frd Phlps 0

Yep, the cuckoo Phelps hate group walked the plank this morning after a happy bunch dressed like pirates and holding signs saying "God hates shrimp -- Leviticus" and "God hates cotton-polyester blends" stood opposite them at the corner of Markham and Scott streets. The group, made up of Central Arkansas Pastafarians, waved swords and growled "Arrghh!" in a manner that would have made Abbie Hoffman proud.

With cars honking and waving at the pirates and a TV crew giving them all the attention, the Phelps group -- with a child in tow, sadly -- picked up their "fag" epithets and went away. Pitiful.

With thanks to edschweppe for the link.

oh, that's lovely. score another one for my theory that exaggerated humour is often a successful way to counteract truly vicious crap. don't give it the weight it would have if one seriously counter-protested; make fun of it.

Now THAT's how to stage a successful counter-protest! Behind on Live Journal, but this brings a smile to my face for today...
