    Unhappy Westboro Baptist Church is protesting at my school.

    Apparently they're targeting my school because it's wealthy, big, and diverse. They're going to be there when kids are driving to school so even though it's not exactly ON the school day it's going to be extremely disruptive to people entering the parking lot.

    A new group at school called the 'diversity alliance' are staging a silent counter protest. Everyone at school is really upset about this.

    Discuss whether counter protesting is effective.

    I dunno, probably our school being full of sinners or something like that. They're also protesting the local Jewish Community Center, because working out and child day camps are evil.

    Did a quick search to see if I could find whot they were protesting... honestly I don't think it matters, considering their normal protests >.>;;



    As an example of their typical protest messages.

    Yeah... how do people get away with that really anyway? >.>

    Honestly I think they should hold a gay pride thing right next to them to piss them off =D

    Well, counter protests can be effective. They can also be violent and create an even bigger mess than there was to begin with. Silent protests? I have to think...why? There is no way of reasoning with crazy on the Fred Phelps level. The best bet would be canceling all activity for the day. No one at school, no attention for their protest. If not, maybe someone could run them over, in a jacked up 4x4 or semi.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I would make out with another lady to tick these guys off. Maybe you should organize a same-sex kiss-in.

    They sound stupid. I'd ask what they were trying to accomplish (to make them confirm their position for themselves).

    I don't understand this mentality. Aren't Christians supposed to be happy knowing (believing, really, but in their minds, knowing) that they are going to Heaven? These people seem extremely unhappy for having the joy of Christ in their hearts.

    That's because they take everything in the Bible at face-value.

    Plus, it's a cult that deviates from normal cultural norms. It consists of a few families who shelter and brain-wash the impressionable minds of their children.

    This is one of the few times I agreed with Hannity. Frankly, I don't know why the folks up at Fox would broadcast this, because it makes Christianity look repulsive.

    I think whatever God they're praying to needs some valium.

    Maybe that's what I should do. Show up with a counter-protest sign that says "God Needs Valium."
