POWELLS: Don’t tolerate Westboro’s hate protest

The Westboro Baptist Church from Topeka, Kan., plans on disrupting the funeral for two young boys who died at the hands of their father (TNT, 2-9). This church believes that it was God’s will that they died because our state legalized gay marriage.

These actions from this church cannot be tolerated. I hope to see many of our veterans there to counterprotest this group that also targets funerals of our fallen soldiers. It’s about time we stand up for what is right and put a stop to these radical anti-civil rights groups.
