Guess Who’s Coming to Marquette University?

I’ll give you a clue.  They have gone to the courts a lot, and they hate fags gay people.  Give up?  Here’s your next clue.

Yes, it’s the Westboro Baptist Church.  Why do you ask?  The mother of Matthew Shepard, Judy Shepard, will speak later on in the semester.  A group of students and I are thinking of counter-protesting.

About shaunmiller

I am a Ph. D student at Marquette University. The primary purpose of this blog is to get my ideas out there, and then have other people scrutinize, critique, build upon, and systematize beliefs. This blog will sometimes pertain to what I'm learning in my classes, but it will occasionally deal with non-classroom issues that I'm thinking about as well.

    Please don’t use the word fag. As you know I have many gay friends and relatives and I can’t stand that word.

    I think an anti-protest would be appropriate. The freedom of speech should be exercised by people as much as the extremists. The idea of a protest against the extremely slanted view of the church would be for the best. If I was there I would join. The fact that there are people that are so judgmental confuses me. I will never understand the point of protesting someone who you think is bound for hell. It just seems silly, like somehow god will give you bonus points for having protested the ‘sinners’…really?
