Early a.m. police barricade at A St. and Concord St. as police control traffic near Framingham High School.

FRAMINGHAM, MA - Under the cover of darkness T.V. news trucks quietly pulled into the old State Lumber parking lot at the corner of School Street and Concord Street.

It was still before dawn as reporters fixed their hair, straightened their jackets and ties, and cameramen readied their equipment.

The Assignment: Get some film of the Westboro Baptist Church members who are in town to protest the play, "The Laramie Project".

The controversial play is about the murder of a gay 21 year old University of Wyoming student,  Matthew Shepard, who was beaten and left to die in 1998 and how the community dealt with the issue.

The Westboro Baptist group travels around the country protesting the play, but are perhaps even better known for protesting at the funerals of US Soldiers who were killed in war.

The play will be performed at Framingham High School tonight and ...[read more]

Shirley Phelps of the hate group that calls itself the Westboro Baptist Church.

FRAMINGHAM, MA - I got a call yesterday afternoon. The woman said a reporter left a message saying they were from Framingham and wanted to interview her, but didn't leave a call-back number, so she searched the internet and found the phone number for framingham.com

She asked if she was reaching "a news outlet", and I told her we do run some news articles along with other Framingham local community information.

Then I asked her, "Did you do something newsworthy?"

Her short reply,  "we picket".

I asked her name...

She said her name was Shirley Phelps-Roper.  Then she said, "we were going to picket in your town on the 4th, but we're going to come on the 3rd instead so more of the kids will be outside the school than will go to that fag play".

She told me she's "the lawyer for the [Westboro Baptist] church", and that she answers the phone calls and email.  Then rather proudly mentioned that she is one of 13 siblings, and she herself is the mother of 11 children.

Knowing I was talking to someone who loves the sound of their own voice, I gave Shirley a go-ahead "uh-huh" and said, "Oh, you're from that church in Kansas", and mentioned I'd read "something about it".

Shirley went on about The Laramie Project ...[read more]
