Beat ‘Em, Don’t Join ‘Em

On Monday, outside Santa Monica High School on Pico Boulevard in Santa Monica, Calif., Westboro Baptist Church members assembled with signs reading ‘God H8s Fags’ and ‘You Eat Your Kids’ to protest the school’s affirmation of LGBT students, according to the Los Angeles Times.

According to their website, Westboro intended to target ‘brutish teachers & hateful parents’ who “have broken the moral compass of this generation” and have doomed the nation by ’embracing sodomy.’

In response to Westboro’s picket, the district’s Board of Education penned an open letter to the community last week reaffirming their ‘unwavering commitment to teach tolerance, acceptance and compassion for others,’ the L.A. Times notes.”
