Angry high school students chase off members of the Westboro Baptist Church

When members of the Westboro Baptist Church showed up at a high school campus in Kansas City, MO, to protest the recent election of a trans girl as homecoming queen, a group of high school students were not pleased.

As members of the hate group congregated outside Oak Park High School, waving their usual “God Hates Fags” signs, they quickly faced a group of counter-protesters, carrying signs that read “Westboro Baptist Church need Jesus” and chanting “Long live the queen!”

When the hate group saw the mob of students heading their way, they realized they outnumbered and immediately ran to the safety of their minivan. As they skidded away hastily, students cheered.

8. They live on lawsuit proceeds

WBC knows exactly how far they can go with their outrageousness, and do so. When someone attacks them for being outrageous, they retaliate by suing the shit out of the attacker.

6. very weird group

They seemingly feed off of outrage and hate (their own, and that which they deliberately provoke in others). The original founder of Westboro was excommunicated from his own church .. that consisted largely of his own family members. Fred Phelps died, no longer a member of the church, in 2014 and the church has seen a steady depletion in numbers in intervening years. Numbers now estimated at 30-35, still largely from one family. And still (apparently) the same hateful bigots that Fred taught them to be.

10. They're known as the Most Hated Family in America

and for good reason. They've earned it. They're proud of it.

15. That is right up by me. I never heard a word about it.

They showed up st St. Patrick's Catholic church one day. Their signs are disgusting but they were quiet. There were more police there than protesters.
