reports about nine-year-old Josef Miles
, who, when witnessing a Westboro Baptist Church picket in progress at Washburn University, was inspired to create his own sign and hold his own quiet counter-protest. His sign, which reads “God hates no one,” is in stark, refreshing contrast to the WBC’s usual bile.
The Westboro Baptist Church, a fringe Calvinist fire-and-brimstone congregation in Topeka, Kansas, regularly pickets around their hometown. The WBC is, unfortunately, well known for their psychotic antics, picketing funerals of murder victims, soldiers and children. They’re banned from entering the UK and have, thankfully, been stopped a number of times from crossing the Canadian border.
