God Hates Fags preachers target London primary school
Preachers from the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church have said they plan to picket a London primary school which ran lessons about gay relationships.
The fundamentalist Phelps family, best known for their chants of ‘God Hates Fags’ became notorious after a Louis Theroux BBC documentary about them.
They picket the funerals of US soldiers, claiming that the military are servants of a government that permits homosexuality.
A picket schedule on their website announces they will be at the George Tomlinson School in Leytonstone next Friday at 2pm.
Around 30 parents took their children out of theschool in February to protest over a week of special lessons to commemorate LGBT History Month.
The group states: “God hates the UK and the Tomlinson School fag tyranny, where conscientious parents face religious persecution for withdrawing their children on lying fag so-called history.
“This is yet another warning to the UK to repent of their manifold sins of the flesh, or perish.”
However, the group were banned from entering the UK last month.
The Home Office confirmed the exclusion order after the Phelps family announced plans to picket in a gay-themed play in Basingstoke.
