Westboro Baptist Church is famous for picketing soldiers' funerals, Jewish institutions, schools that are tolerant of gays and just about anything else in America that they don't like; but when they came to Gunn High School in Palo Alto, CA, hate was met with love... and song.

The only thing worse than being ignored is having the protest blow up in their face.
That is great what those kids did. I hope they set a great example and this idea spreads. WBC will have no more of an effect.
Incidently, while Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church may be off the main stream of American Christianity, they aren't all that far off. Here's two quotes from a couple of other tributaries:

"The long term goal of Christians in politics should be to gain exclusive control over the franchise. Those who refuse to submit publicly to the eternal sanctions of God by submitting to his Church's public marks of the covenant -baptism and holy communion - must be denied citizenship, just as they were in ancient Israel."
-GARY NORTH (Christian Reconstructionist)

"There will never be world peace until God's house and God's people are given their rightful place of leadership at the top of the world."
-PAT ROBERTSON
Thanks Hugh. I shared the video. : )
really cool, thanks for posting this!
I used to be an escort at a Women's clinic that was also an abortion provider. When the protesters started singing songs one time, we on the clinic side would sing along with them and/or sing our own songs of 'love' back at them. Really turned them off.
