Westboro Baptist Church sent three of its members to protest at Sacramento-area schools this week, calling the city one of the most depraved in America.
About a dozen counter protesters stood near the women at the entrance to Sacramento State University Tuesday, but they didn’t interact.
In the campus library quad, students and staff were reacting to the protest by passing out heart-shaped stickers, rainbow pins and listening to speeches about diversity and inclusion.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The Westboro Baptist church decided to send a few of its members over to preach hate and fear and anger at a population of our students, and so it was very important for our community to come out to show its support for one another and be the family that we are,” said Beth Lessen, assistant vice president of student affairs.
The Topeka, Kan.-based church has staged protests across the country against Jews, Muslims, military veterans, celebrities, mass-shooting victims and gay rights groups. Its members say they are fighting against sin, but the tactics are widely viewed as hateful.
