Westboro hate group is a no-show
The radical Westboro Baptist Church, famous both for their virulent homophobia and for picketing the funerals of U.S. soldiers, had indicated on their website they planned to rally outside a play in Old Strathcona, Canada on Saturday night. The hate group -- which masquerades as a Baptist Christian church, but is neither Baptist nor Christian --failed to show up. Instead, hundreds of gay rights supporters met outside the play, a production of The Laramie Project, to wave signs and speak out against the American church.
