600 Oppose Westboro 8 @ Gonzaga

Eight members of the Westboro Baptist Church, a radical anti-homosexual and anti-Semitic religious group based in Topeka, Kan., are picketing near Gonzaga University. There are about 600 people demonstrating against the group across Spokane Falls Boulevard from the Westboro representatives, near the GU baseball field. A Westboro member said they chose the Inland Northwest because North Idaho College, in Coeur d’Alene, is presenting “The Laramie Project,” a play about the aftermath of the murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay college student, in 1998/Spokesman-Review. More here.

Question: 600 versus 8? Is it worth the time?
