Counterprotesters outnumber Westboro church members

Dispatch: Counterprotesters outnumber church members.

I was really riled up when I heard the Westboro cult was coming to Hilliard.  Then I found out they were just protesting in front of a high school, not a funeral.  They want to howl at a government run institution, fine.  Given that, and the fact that the school asked people not to stage a counter-demonstration, I opted to leave them alone.

Counterprotesters yelled, “Get out,” and sang songs to object to the Westboro presence. They held signs with messages such as “Unity is key,” “No H8” and “God Hates Bigots.” The church members’ signs said “God Hates You” and “Thank God for Dead Soldiers.”

This wasn’t a funeral. Make some new signs you lazy bastards.

Hilliard schools said that students who got involved with demonstrations on either side would face school discipline. 

Really? Some hate-mongers are attacking their school and if the students have the pride to stand up to them they are to be punished? I don’t think that is appropriate in the least.

Hilliard Bradley High School junior Abby Fish attended the protest with her mother, Mary Ann, to represent her friends who are gay and lesbian and were fearful to show up.

It really is sad that that these kids were frightened away from even coming to school.  I can’t say I blame them, though it would have been wonderful if they had defied these Westboro jackasses.  They’re nothing but a bunch of bullies who are too cowardly to pick on anyone who isn’t a child or a corpse.

I think I good way to stick your finger in Phelps’ eye would be to find your local chapter of the Pink Pistols and tell them you want to sign up.  I’m told you don’t have to be gay to join so long as you support them and support the Second Amendment.
