We spent a pleasant hour this morning counter-protesting the idiots from Westb*ro Baptist Church. They were picketing at my daughter's old high school and I'm not taking that lying down. What a bunch of lunatics! All they've done is mobilize the sane people to take a stand against them. And, just before Pride!

My camera is misbehaving lately, so I only have a couple of blurry phone pictures. I'm gonna look for some pictures online, because Portland can be pretty colorful when it comes to gay protests.

That's me with the sign saying, "Don't be a HATER".

When they were in my town people pledged money for every minute they were here, and the money was donated to the LGBT center. The longer they stayed, the more money was raised. Nice to turn the tables.

But yeah, strange group of people to say the least.

And how nice to have a picture of you I can now associate with you!

YES! It is really so nice to see you. Thank you so much for sharing this.

Those people are sincerely out of control but they are smart (headed by lawyers) and they are getting what they want - exposure. 8thday, that is the coolest idea yet. Your town people are a good bunch of folks.

I love that idea! I'm going to propose it at the QCenter here in town, in case they come back again. That and send a letter to the editor of the local gay newspaper...

Yeah, I'm not just virtual, I exist in real space and time... :-)
