They deserve a pat on the back.
Who??? Our local new media.
Why??? Coverage of the visit to our city by a group from the Westboro Baptist church. A PROTEST Group.
The TV stations decided not to send cameras or crews to picture them or to get interviews. The newspaper barely mentioned that they came. There was a picture of the anti-protest group of about 200 people that followed them around from church to church as they protested.
Everytime they started to sing or shout, they were drowned out by the others saying USA, USA, USA Our local group carried a lot of nice signs about nice things, not hate. I don't know what the Westboros carried as there were no pictures of them. The four targented churches were expecting them and decided to ignore the situation. Although one church did say that they stationed an extra usher at the front entrance.
The Westboro group? Three women and four children
They are supposed to be back Friday to picket the high schools.
