A crowd turned out in the early morning darkness in Coeur d’Alene
today to counter the small group of protesters from Westboro Baptist
Church that plans a second day of denouncing gays, soldiers, Jews, the
United States, and private and public colleges and schools. The
eight members of the extremist group from Topeka, Kan., were out holding
signs at the corner of Fourth and Dalton streets, next to Coeur d’Alene
High School, by 6 a.m., while at least 50 counter-demonstrators met
them with messages of their own. “I don’t like the way they treat
veterans at the funerals,” said Greg Prado of Hayden, a Marine who
served in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. Prado attended with
his son Cade, 6, and wife Amy/Alison Boggs, SR. More here.
