Westboro Baptist Church has announced that it will protest next month's Indianapolis 500.

The Topeka, Kansas-based church said in a press release that the annual Memorial Day automobile race has “pushed homosexuality for more than 40 years by propping up Jim Nabors to sing Back Home Again (in Indiana).”

Last year, Nabors, the star of the CBS sitcom Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., married his partner Stan Cadwallader in Seattle, just weeks after Washington state legalized marriage equality and before Hawaii, where the couple resides, followed suit.

“Jim Nabors is not the lovable, ho-hum, happy-go-lucky Gomer Pyle clown that he portrayed on the Andy Griffith Show,” Westboro wrote. “Jim Nabors is a poster child for homosexuality and sodomy.”

The 83-year-old Nabors, who first sang at the race in 1972, has said this will be his final appearance at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
