As reported here last week The Satanic Temple, a community of worship “devoted to the Dark Lord” preformed what they called a “Pink Mass”over the grave of Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps Jr.’s mother, Catherine Idalette Johnston that supposedly would turn the hatefully insane Westboro Baptists Church’s deceased straight mother’s spirit into a homosexual one— not unlike the Mormon practice of baptizing the dead, only much much gayer.
Now comes word that the Meridian Mississippi Police Department says arrests are coming for the stunt and they aren’t the least bit amused.
“Meridian Police have reached out and spoken to Mr. Arlinghaus of Magnolia Cemetery,” says Captain Dean Harper of the Meridian Police Department. “We are in the process now of constructing affidavits and warrants against these individuals, and we will have them arrested as soon as we can.” A group from New York’s Satanic Temple made the trip to Meridian to protest the Westboro Baptist Church. There, they performed a ritual they call Pink Mass on the grave of Catherine Johnston, the mother of Westboro founder Fred Phelps, Jr. The ceremony involved two same-sex couples kissing over her grave. They then declared Catherine Johnston a lesbian in the afterlife. “It is an unusual crime that we haven’t come across to my knowledge in awhile,” says Harper. “Not only does it violate a state and city ordinance, but it also violates the moral decency of a human being.”
Is this a form of “religious persecution? Will police all over the country rush to arrest all those who performed post-humous conversions to Mormonism? And will they now have a problem onvincing Catherine Johnston spirit to stop being a lesbian for all eternity?

No doubt Phelps and his WBC crew, the ardent and vociferous advocates for free speech and the right of protest, will be rushing to defend the Satanists and their 1st Amendment rights
