So if you read my previous blog entry on the topic, the Westboro Baptist Church were supposed to come to my city on April 5, to protest a liquor shop that advertised a champagne sale upon hearing the news of Fred Phelps passing. Well, turns out they changed it to April 6, and I had no clue. So I missed it. By the time I heard they were there protesting, with the counter protesters that I wanted to take part in, it was too late. You see counter protesters began to cross the street and approach them and the Westboro Baptist Church quickly packed up and left in a hurry. They were only there for a few minutes. Technically the police were not supposed to let anyone from any side try to go to other side. However, it happened anyway.
This was the second time the Westboro Baptist Church has been to my city in just a few short years. The last time they came her to protest the High School located right by my house. They claimed that this High School had the most teen pregnancies and had a large percentage of gay students and "fag enablers" (their words).
