Westboro Baptist Church to Protest at Ole Miss

OXFORD, Miss.–The often controversial church will be in Oxford during the month of May.

According to their website the group will be on campus at the University of Mississippi to picket the the beloved “The Blind Side” movie about former Ole Miss football player Michael Oher.

An excerpt from their website on the reasoning is below:

“Another idol of Doomed USA is Ole Miss, your football idol, featured in movie, “The Blind Side.” Did we tell you, God hates your idols?!  Shortly, God will cast down all the idols of this nation, and in that hour, you WILL get an understanding of The Blind Side – just before God drop kicks your rebellious, idolatrous back sides directly into hell! All the players will be there, and you can get up close and personal with them, as you curse each other FOR ETERNITY! That is a LONG time!

When God turns his hand to destroy Doomed USA, pursuant to His plain word, He will destroy all your false gods.”

According to their “picket schedule” they’re set to be on campus May 18th from 8-8:30am.

“We have not been contacted by anyone representing that organization and so it’s probably inappropriate for us to comment on it at this time,” said University of Mississippi Dean of Students Sparky Reardon.

Reardon did say that Ole Mis has a respect for the first amendment, whether they agree with the message or not, and WBC would be allowed to express their thoughts if they wish to do so.

He did mentioned that to his knowledge no one has been denied by the University of Mississippi to actually express their thoughts in a public setting in the past on campus.
