Huffington Post published a story about this young guy who made his own counter-protest sign at a Westboro event.
Def. my inspiration moment today: NINE! year old guy staged a counter protest outside Westboro Baptist Church. His little protest sign reads: GOD HATES NO-ONE! Westboro Baptist Church is the hateful source of the God Hates Fags signs that the US court recently declared constitutional. Fair enuff. But how about some medico stepping up and diagnosing their logic as criminally INSANE? They now picket funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq & Afghanistan, claming that God has killed them for the US tolerance of homosexuality. Give me strength.
There’s a lovely piece of gay detective fiction, Death Rites [?] by Richard Stevenson, where the Westboro maddies descend on a town funeral & have the shit beaten out of them by Irish mafia thugs. Of well, people can dream. But they are thoroughly out to lunch, while methodically loony enough to mount a presumably expensive court challenge to be able to protest. Thank you Josef Miles, hero of the people.
