Whether it was due to truckers blocking the way, bikers patrolling the streets, or the hand of God himself, protesters from Westboro Baptist Church were not able to mount the protest that had been announced and feared in tornado ravaged Joplin, MO.
The true story of what actually happened is hard to verify. The Springfield News-Leader says they were a no-show. The New York Times says they came but couldn't get close to where President Obama spoke while a couple of the television stations says they came, clashed with locals and left.
This group that calls itself a church needs to stay away. People have suffered and don't need to be goaded by hate mongers. They pride themselves in showing up at funerals of fallen military men and spread their hate. To call themselves Christian is nothing short of sacrilegious. I just can't find where in the Bible Jesus told us to hate like these people hate.
I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day.
