  •  Westboro was in Nashville in 2003 or so (6+ / 0-)

    back when Nashville passed LGBT protections for the city.  Turnout in the counterprotest wasn't huge, but about 100 showed up.

    I would think that, with Fort Campbell less than an hours drive away, that you'll have plenty of military (and just regular people of good intentions) out to counter this hate and madness.

    I think the thing that irks me more about WBC than anything else is that this isn't really an idealogical battle for them anymore...it's a moneymaking scheme, based them suing (and constantly winning) for 1st Amendment Rights infringment.

    Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.
