TOPEKA, KS (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) The controversial Westboro Baptist Church, led by Fred Phelps, has announced they will picket a yet to be named video store close to church grounds because they are selling the movie, Stonerville. The film was pre-released on January 11, 2011. It will be available everywhere this week via Netflix, Blockbuster, iTunes, and Amazon as well as video stores.
Stonerville is a direct-to-DVD frat boy comedy which stars Pauly Shore, Patrick Cavanaugh and the late comedy legend Leslie Nielsen, in his last on-screen appearance. Nielsen passed away in November of 2010.
“This kind of hellish free-for-all is exactly the kind of entertainment most of us abhor,” said Phelps. “Practically everyone in the film are incessant weed smoking, genitalia gawking, potty mouthed bohemians pretending to be fine upstanding citizens. It is a personal affront to every God fearing, false-worship hating, sexually ambiguous despising follower of mine. I had to watch the thing three times mainly because I was in shock, and wanted to make sure I got most of the jokes – which for the record appeared to have been written by left-wing, socialist, intellectuals who promote such terrorist acts as openness and understanding. If God had wanted us to smoke pot, He would have put it here in the form of a living plant.”
Several film students at Washburn University in Topeka are planning a counter protest once Phelps announces where their picket line will be.
