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!"
