I wasn't really sure where to post this, but apparently the Westboro Baptist Church has plans to protest one of Drew's live shows this Saturday. Apparently Drew "uses his platform to be an anti-christ who preaches the opposite of what God says."

http://www.examiner.com/article/westboro-baptist-church-to-protest-drew-carey

I respect the opinions that anyone here might have (whether you agree/disagree with Drew, but that's not why I'm sharing this article Smile ) but.. it's just Drew Carey. Of all people.

Anyway, I thought someone here might be interested in reading the article.

I'm not reading the article, but it's probably just a case of religious nuts who try to force their views on everyone else.

Ugh. I started to read the article, but quickly got disgusted and stopped.

I hate the Westboro Baptist Church.

I hate them too, and find the whole thing pretty disturbing.

I laughed when they called Drew the anti-christ though. Maybe they prefer Clive. Laughing

They're whack-jobs, what do you expect, sense?

Drew Carey is one of the least offensive comedians around.
Who else but the Westboro Baptists?

I'm religious myself, but I don't agree with what that church said. If they actually knew what they were talking about, they wouldn't use the term "fag supporter" to describe Drew Carey or put down homosexuals, and they wouldn't bash Drew Carey in the media like that. They sound pretty hateful to me for a church.

I am religious myself and I believe it should be a person's choice not something to be forced upon. If someone wants to know I will tell them, but its up to them of what they do or not do with the information. I am not going to force it on them even though I feel that they are making the wrong choice.
