Fred Phelps Misses Autograph Signing

phelps cabaretFascist pastor Fred Phelps must have been wondering how he could leverage his appearance at the Winnipeg premiere of a parody theater piece about his life when he got the bright idea to protest the funeral of the guy who got his head cut off on the bus.

Last month Tim McLean, 22, was stabbed to death on a Greyhound bus by Vince Weiguang Li, a recent immigrant to Canada.

Fred Phelps and members of his Westboro church had threatened to picket the funeral claiming that McLean's death was God's vengeance for Canada turning a blind eye to homosexuality, abortion and adultery.

Chances are Fred Phelps was just going to be in the neighborhood, "protesting" Alister Newton's premiere of The Pastor Phelps Project: a fundamentalist cabaret.

Phelps and his clan were turned away at the Canadian border.

The ever lovely Shirley Phelps-Roper, daughter of Fred, told reporters,
They won't let us in, but we have a group that will cross in another spot. They'll have to strip search everyone who crosses that border or they won't know who we are. They'll have to see the WBC (Westboro Baptist Church) tattoo on our butts.
