The teachers that invited these nuts into the school SHOULD BE FIRED. This group is not about promoting a cause. It's about promoting HATE. Why not invite members of the KKK, Arian Nation, NAMBLA in for a talk. These teachers are just giving a bunch of nuts a platform to pander to our children. Most universities won't host these nuts because they correctly see them as a bunch of wackos. I understand what the teachers are doing but you have to look at their message and the way they conduct themselves in the relm of what we expect as members of a civilized society. For God's sake this group drags out the 5-10 year old children to promote their hate. That is child abuse. Again, shame shame on Kilborne!
The Columbus Dispatch stated in an earlier article concerning the Westboro nuts, that the school had earlier had speakers from the KKK make an appearance at the school. I would think parents should be looking for some school board scalps.

I can't make it to the bake sale, but sure would love to donate to the worthy cause and in counterprotest to these Westboro fools. Can anyone tell me where I can send a donation?

I find it staggering how many Worthington people liked the idea of giving the kids an 'alternative view' of this non-issue.

Staggering. Telling us that by introducing an opposing argument, they're teaching their kids critical thinking skills.

In reality where does this come from? Is it anti-military or anti-gay, perhaps both?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
