Westboro Baptist Cult Coming To Maryland For Crazytime

Just great.

A church based in Topeka, Kansas is scheduled to demonstrate next month outside Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda because the school, which opened in 1962, is named for a man who may have been homosexual.

Westboro Baptist Church has been drawing national attention for staging anti-homosexuality demonstrations at military funerals, on the theory that fallen troops are God's punishment for a country tolerant of homosexuals.

Though I gotta say, if they're devoting time and resources to protesting Walt Whitman they must have an insane amount of time on their hands. Leaves of grass, indeed.
