It seems like only yesterday that members of Fred Phelps’ “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church were staging protests in Charleston, Mt. Pleasant and Columbia.

Now comes news the radical anti-gay, funeral protesting troupe will once again be heading to the Palmetto State.

From WCSC in Myrtle Beach:

The radical church group that travels the country protesting military funerals and professing God’s hatred of homosexuals is returning to the Holy City, according to the church’s website.

Westboro Baptist Church, online at, plans to be at various churches in Charleston on May 16.

May 16, 2010
* Cathedral of Praise, 3790 Ashley Phosphate Rd. from 8:30-9 a.m.
* First Baptist Church, 61 Church St. from 9:30-10 a.m.
* Blessed Sacrament, 5 St. Teresa Dr. from 10:30-11 a.m.

Groups from the church are also slated to protest in Myrtle Beach, Irmo, Charleston, Columbia and Mount Pleasant in May.
