Kansas City is one of my favorite places to take a vacation, partly because it’s cheap and partly because it seems so much more metropolitan than Tulsa. After reading about a recent anti-Phelps demonstration there, I now know why I like that city so much.
From the article in the Kansas City Star:
Westboro church members believe that God is punishing America for tolerating homosexuality. They have drawn harsh criticism across the nation for picketing at funerals of servicemen and servicewomen.
Their message didn’t sit well with many students at the high school where, according to student Jake Davidson, there is a Gay and Straight Alliance at the school and students elected a homecoming king in 2007 who was openly gay.
“Everyone is equal whether you’re gay or straight,” said Davidson, a 16-year-old junior from Leawood and an organizer of the student protest.
Does anybody still believe that we haven’t already won the culture war? I think we know which side the youth of this nation support.
