The Westboro people found themselves "run out" of Moore, Oklahoma the other day. I hate the self-congratulatory response from so many conservatives. "See, we aren't intolerant, these people are."
Westboro is the perfect foil for so many people. They can take a stance against this small church and believe they have accomplished something. They won't take a stand on torture, or poverty, but they will bravely stand up against a church that no one defends. Wow. How courageous.
