On Friday July 9th the Westboro Baptist Church staged a protest in front of the Jewish Community Center in Dallas. This was one of several locations the WBC intended to picket over the weekend targeting the Jewish, Gay, and Catholic communities to express the church’s message of the “sovererignty of god and the doctrines of grace”, or as they so succinctly put:”God hates fags”. It also seems they have issues with Jews, America, and er..well…just about any perceived enabler of the “soul-damning”, “nation-destroying”, homosexual lifestyle.
The WBC was met by counter protesters which outnumbered them three to one.
This may be the reason why the WBC brought so many children with them…
It was sad on so many levels.
