Counter-Protest of Westboro Baptist Church in Annapolis [Photos & Video]


This morning the Westboro Baptist Church staged a protest outside the Anne Arundel County Courthouse in Annapolis, MD. They came because today was the first day same sex marriages were officially legal, and could be conducted at the courthouse. Citizens from all over the area came out to counter-protest, and show support for the couples exercising their newly granted right.

Westboro Bapist Church Coming to Annapolis, Counter-Protest Organized

The Westboro Baptist Church has announced that they will be protesting in Annapolis on January 2, 2013 from 8-9am: The Westboro Baptist Church’s entry on their schedule for Annapolis on January 2, 2013. I have provided a screenshot instead of a link to their site as I’ve been informed that they get money from donors for every hit their site receives. Their protest is in response to the homosexual couples who will be at the court house to get married.

Counter Protest of Westboro Baptist Church at Meade High School

Counter protesters

The Westboro Baptist Church picketed this morning at Meade High School. As I discussed in a post the other day, they based today’s demonstration on claims that the school has a large number of homosexual students. When they announced their intentions, a surge of counter protest movements fired up, and the result was impressive. We got there around 6:30am and already there was quite a crowd. The police closed off the road where the protest was being held, and kept the WBC & counter protesters on separate sides of the road.

I'll Be Counter-Protesting the Westboro Baptist Church on Thursday

The Westboro Baptist Church is going to be protesting at Meade High School on Thursday morning. In a press release they stated that they’re targeting Meade because of a large number of homosexual students. The school is part of the Anne Arundel County Public School system, though it primarily serves the military community of Fort Meade. I’ll be attending a counter-protest on Thursday morning in support of the students and tolerance.
