Westboro Bapists Fail

Go ahead, get out of the car, make our day!


CNN PRODUCER NOTE davis316 shared these photos taken by his wife today of a counter-protest in Harrisburg, IL, against the controversial Westboro Baptist Church, who planned to protest a funeral for the people who died during the February 29 tornado. They estimate around 3,000 people showed up, forming a human chain to prevent the WBC picketers from approaching the funeral. 'The WBC people didn't even get out of the car,' he said. 'The vibe was: Don't mess with the families who have already lost so much. All the town around here, once they found out what was going on, all came together in support of our community.'
