RESIDENTS of Kansas City rose above the ‘God hates fags’ vitriol of the Westboro Baptist Church to show that compassion is the perfect antidote to hate.
Megan Coleman who helped make the sign after the death of Westboro’s ex-leader, Fred Phelps, said: “We realized that it wasn’t so much about antagonising them but sending out the countered safe that we are here for people who need that message and need that positivity.”
The message didn’t quite get through however.
WBC member, Steve Drain, said: “I don’t even know what they’re saying.”
The organisation gained a repulsive notoriety for picketing the funerals of US servicemen killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
