We've had success with the Silent Witness program here in PA that protects people by counter-demonstrating against incidents (and idiots) like this.

Peace,

RD I didn't know of such a program, that is wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing the link.

My partner and I are getting married the end of this month, and bless her heart, last night she asked me if we had to announce publicly where we are having our ceremony. I held her gently, and told her no, we do NOT have to, and promised that if freddie were to show up, I'd be calling 911 to have that freak show arrested for disturbing a private ceremony.

we had a protest today in monterey, ca where the westboro baptist church members were supposed to show up and protest the military and the presidio here, but they never showed and we ended up just having a big spread-the-love fest instead, we stayed there from noon to 2:30 holding up love/support/etc signs and got an overwhelmingly good community response, not to mention at one point we had 100-ish people standing on the streetcorners with us.

counter protest. please.
