Is the Westboro Baptist Church Really Coming?
Of course we have been through this before, when they promised to picket a presentation by Judy Shepard (mother of supposed gay martyr Matthew Shepard).
But they did not show up.

And they have given the gay lobby and its allies some fine opportunities to engage in self-righteous moral preening.
