Fred Phelps' Clan in Cincinnati Tomorrow?

Thanks to Ryan M. over at Slouching Towards Manhattan for the phone call about this one.

From the "Upcoming Picket Schedule" on Fred Phelps' and the Westboro Baptist Church's GodHatesFags website, there's a plan to be in Cincinnati... tomorrow morning. Shut up!!!

This is what it says about a possible picket tomorrow morning at 8:15am:
Plum Street Temple - Jews Killed Jesus female rabbi is curse 720 Plum Street We will be at your little celebration to remind you all of a few things which you have forgotten. Here is the face of God's curses, and manifest evidence that God Hates You - you are going to have the first black female rabbi. Like as if that is an accomplishment. The opposite is the truth, and the prophet Isaiah had the same thing happening around him in his day, check it out: Isaiah 3:9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves. 10 Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. 11 Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him. 12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. 13 The LORD standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people. 14 The LORD will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses. 15 What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the Lord GOD of hosts. Also, if you believe that by having the face of this evil woman as your representative before the Beast Obama, he will spare you from his soon-to-be-announced attack on all things Jew and Israel - think again. He is the one who will destroy your people, and will be happy about it. Satan is still angry over the fact that God made a covenant with your ancestors - just like you are angry that God has made a new covenant with the Gentiles. Difference is, God is going to let Obama have his way with you as proper punishment for never having repented for killing Jesus. Wow, you all are in big trouble on every side! AMEN!
Jesus (no pun intended) -- does this mean we have to put up with them tomorrow morning? Gr. Ryan says he's tried to follow up, but cannot confirm their attendance here in the Queen City.

If you aren't aware, Hebrew Union College will ordain (is that the word) the first ever black female rabbi -- and she's convert! It's like a great bit of progressive action for Reform Judaism. It's an amazing story to read about. But, apparently, Fred and friends have a serious problem with this... which is funny because I don't understand how they have anything to do with Judaism except some not-so-subtle anti-Semitism. Why would this matter to them?

Reform Jews have had female Rabbis for a while. It's just that this awesome woman is the first Black female rabbi in the States.

That picture would make a great poster to illustrate the horrors of incest.
Seriously, I am amazed these guys can even find the places they want to protest.

Just sad that anyone can try to rationalize such behavior.

The upshot is that so far no one in the news media seems to be taking the bait; I haven't seen any coverage of their street corner protest. Did see a lot of security at the Temple, though.
