The Precious From the Vile

Abby Zimet

Since 1955, Westboro "God Hates Fags" Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas
has held 41,226 demonstrations against "the fag lifestyle of
soul-damning, nation-destroying filth," not to mention abortion, rock
music, Lady Gaga and hockey. Taking on the ultimate challenge,
counter-protesters are getting hilariously inventive. More signs! One of our favorites: "God Hates Signs!"

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news outlet. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Won't Exist.
