In addition to dead gay people and dead actors who once played gay people, the Westboro folks protest people who are actually cartoons. You're in good company, Whitman High.
Kansas' Westboro Baptist Church frequently makes headlines in the national news for traveling far and wide to protest very inappropriate things in a very inappropriate manner. Its members -- led by Pastor Fred Phelps -- do not very much care for the gays, and so usually they protest such tangentially gay things as funerals for people whom they consider to have been gay, before they died. They bring signs with such colorful slogans as "God Hates Fags." And last year they went so far as to protest the funeral for actor Heath Ledger, a heterosexual who once played a homosexual cowboy in a fictional movie.
Now they have their sights set on coming to Bethesda, Maryland. So what fictional gay person's funeral must be coming up in Bethesda soon?
There isn't one! Well, sort of. The Westboro folks read on the Internet that there is a public high school in Bethesda called "Walt Whitman High School." And then a quick googling of this "Walt Whitman" fellow revealed that the 19th-century American poet was a homosexual who wrote these really gay poems.
Members of the Westboro Baptist Church, nationally known for their anti-homosexuality protests, are planning to picket on April 24 outside Walt Whitman High, named after the Civil War-era writer who may have been gay.The students and administration at this homosexual high school have reacted with both bafflement and super-bafflement, because, um, are they SERIOUS?
"My initial reaction was that I couldn't believe they were really going to do it," said Whitman Principal Alan Goodwin. "But then my second reaction was that I hoped they wouldn't."Now, however, Whitman is planning to use the comical protests as a "teaching opportunity" about civil rights, meaning they will all stand at the window and point at the mouth-breathing idiots who traveled from Kansas to protest a school's famous gay poet namesake.

Surely there's a Ginsberg high school somewhere...and lord knows William Shakespeare was a gay poet. These guys are going to be protesting a LOT
Edit: I stand corrected. I cannot find either a Ginsberg or a Shakespeare high school.
There's something wrong with this world. *sigh*
“Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love."
I don't think I could ever meet these people. If I did, i'd have to have the willpower of about 20 gods, cause i'm pretty sure i'd turn right around and kick them square in the ass.
