All Westboro Baptist Church counter protests are doing it wrong.
The correct way to counter protest the Westboro Baptist Church is to hit them where it really hurts: their family. With so many of the children growing up and leaving the crazy cult and being excommunicated (never to be spoken to by church members again), the correct way to protest the Westboro Baptist Church is to ask them where are they now? Where are those members who as children protested along side them, but then grew up and came to independent thought and decided this is a crazy cult, so they left.
I want to see a counter protest where they are chanting, "Where's Grace?" "Where's Megan?" "Where's Joshua?" "Where's Zacharias?"
Or if you really want to hit them hard, ask, "Who's Sam's real father?" Since Sam (Shirley Phelps-Roper son) was born out of wedlock and no one knows who the real father is.
Better would be signs that say these things. That would really hit them hard!
