NIC Plans Counter-Protest Vigil

North Idaho College students will be holding a candlelight vigil from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30, on the field between the Sherman and Hedlund buildings on campus. The vigil will occur during the same time the Westboro Baptist Church has announced plans to demonstrate the NIC Theatre Department's production of “The Laramie Project.” The college intends for a quiet gathering. Students, faculty, staff and the school's administration ask that community members do not confront Westboro church members. Community members who wish to participate in a solemn celebration are welcome to join the candlelight vigil in the spirit of solidarity and acceptance/Tom Greene, NIC Press Room. More here.

Question: Is this a good approach to combat the planned protest by the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan.?
