Do we even have to say it? Despite the fact that the actual Pastor Phelps was turned back at the Canadian border, Toronto anti-protesters turned out in magnificent force to show support for The Pastor Phelps Project, a play up in the Summerworks Festival right now. Blog TO has got the article and some capital-G Great pics of the good citizens that showed up to disparage the crazy redneck sect from St. Topeka, Kansas. And the real winner? The play itself, which sold out handily, turning people away from its opening night performance.

H/T to the divine Ms. Mooney.
