    As Trobone says, the WBC says they are going to show up at dozens if not hundreds of events, but in reality they actually show up and picket less than once per month.

    The more people like this stand up and show the WBC that their hate will not be tolerated, the better.

    And actually, I disagree with Trobone - yes, bad publicity is publicity, but people are beginning to catch on that they don't show up very much.  And people know not to physically confront them or damage their property when they do - their usual MO is to sue if somebody touches them or rips up a sign or otherwise damages their property, and they've lived off that for years. But they haven't been successful at this for a while now.

    With their highly publicized defections of certain family members, their numbers dwindling, funds running out so they can't travel to picket as much - they are fast becoming irrelevant.

    Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear. ~William E. Gladstone, 1866
