Anti-Phelps: Kansas doing it right

Everybody knows I like to pick on Kansas. It's right next door and they have a lot of easy pickin's. :shifty

But I'll give Kansas an atta'boy for this one: Hundreds stage Westboro counter-protest

For the most part, the local media has stopped covering Westboro protests to not encourage them, but this event got major coverage in the Kansas City area.

That's awesome. And to be turning it into something positive with the money being raised - doubly great. Nice to see something so good coming of it.

So maybe westbro can accomplish good, by inspiring people to look around and realize that is not cool and do something good with it eh?

Yeah, and some good has already come out of it actually. Like the Patriot Guard. They're bikers who escort military funerals to keep the Westboro protesters away. It started in Kansas and is now a nation-wide program to help military survivors.

That is amazing. It seems like the only good that comes from westboro is the acts against it.
