Description
On May 23, Westboro Baptist Church has scheduled picket protests outside of three major churches in the Nashville area. A counter-protest is obviously in order.

Westboro Baptist Church is a radical hate group based out of Topeka, Kansas best known for their protest activities which include picketing churches and funerals and desecration of the American flag. Since its first service in 1955, the WBC and its founder Fred Phelps have dedicated themselves to spreading a message of hate towards homosexuals, American soldiers, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Muslims, and any other organization that disagrees with their radical views. Since 1991, the church claims to have participated in over 41,000 protests in 650 cities nationwide, using signs bearing such strong messages as GOD HATES FAGS, THANK GOD FOR DEAD SOLDIERS, FAGS DOOM NATIONS, GOD HATES THE U.S.A., THANK GOD FOR AIDS, and GOD IS YOUR ENEMY to propagate and publicize their campaign of intolerance.
