Thanks for all the great poster ideas.
We counter-protested with the Westboro Baptist Church folks here in Kansas City tonight.
I was horrible about taking pictures. Ugh.
Some of our signs read:
God Hates Haters
Fred Phelps is Gay for God
Me thinks thou doest protest too much
God Hates Shrimp
Thanks for the support and encouragement.
The police said they prefer that people don't oppose them. (They don't want trouble and also Inferring that the WBC folks look crazy enough all by themselves.) However, I think it is an ideal opportunity to point out that it's not just the Phelps family that are delusional. Religion itself breeds ignorance, hostility, and fanatics. Always have. Always will.
Too bad their picketing schedule is empty.
We found that very rewarding and look forward to doing it again soon.
