Westboro Baptist Church -- Boycotting Gay Player In NCAA Tourney

EXCLUSIVE

Fear not, raging homophobes ... when the first openly gay man to play in the NCAA tournament takes the court in Denver Thursday, the a-holes from the Westboro Baptist Church have vowed to be there to picket. 

Seton Hall's Derrick Gordon went public about his sexual orientation roughly 2 years ago ... but this is the first year he'll be playing in the biggest tournament in college basketball as an openly gay man.  

Most people are hailing it as a triumph ... but the Westboro Baptist Church says it's an abomination. 

"Satan-inspired media loves to stoke his rebellion, but we'll protest @marchmadness for Derrick Gordon," the church tweeted. 

So far, Gordon hasn't responded -- seems he's too busy focused on the actual game.
