Seen Tonight: A Lovely Protest Sign for Westboro Baptist Church After the Death of Its Founder

As Westboro Baptist Church members — the handful who are still there — protested outside a Lorde concert tonight, a small group staged a counter-protest with this lovely sign:

Megan Coleman helped make the sign.

“We realized that it wasn’t so much about antagonizing them,” she said, “but sending out the countered safe [sic] that we are here for people who need that message and need that positivity.”

Yet, the message meant nothing to Steve Drain a longtime Westboro member.

“I don’t even know what they’re saying,” he said.

Doesn’t matter. The sign is still beautiful. Those people are fighting nasty bigotry with love and peace.
