Westboro Baptist Church to protest Game 6

Because the Westboro Baptist Church is less a religious organization than a bubble of close-minded bigots hanging onto their pipe dream of a culturally anesthetized America, they will be protesting tonight’s Game 6 in Chicago. Why? They’re just hopping mad that P.J. continues to play Reggie Evans over Andray Blatche.

No, but really: it’s because the Nets didn’t condemn former player Jason Collins for coming out as gay, instead releasing a series of earnestly supportive statements from those who’d played with him in previous seasons. The indignity! I’d advise any attending Chicagoans to just laugh and laugh and laugh rather than trying to parry the protesters with any kind of logic, because sometimes a wet blanket is the best cure for a homophobic fire.
