is Phelps foundering?

Whacko fundie Fred Phelps led another of his infamous anti-gay demonstrations at a Kansas high school. His group contained all of fourteen bigots while the counter-demonstration (h/t: Andy at Towleroad) numbered in the hundreds:

The threat of Phelps' diatribes energized the student body:

...according to student Jake Davidson, there is a Gay and Straight Alliance at the school and students elected a homecoming king in 2007 who was openly gay. "Everyone is equal whether you're gay or straight," said Davidson, a 16-year-old junior from Leawood and an organizer of the student protest.

"It's really cool that everyone wants to be involved and take a stand against this. It doesn't surprise me that everyone wants to help out." [...] "It's pretty much all anyone has been talking about this week," he said.

It appears that the Phelpsian fundies are losing the battle to shame our LGBT youth into the closet, and scare their straight allies into silence. Check out the photo gallery for more encouraging images of the future of equality in America.

I'm saving this picture and I'll be looking at it whenever the misanthropy gloom strikes.
