Zombies gathered at a Westboro anti-gay demonstration to counter protest. Zombies outnumbered Baptists 300 to 8.

I must be stuck in the 60s, I thought I'd be hearing the British pop band singing "She's Not There", or "Tell Her No". Still, it's good to see counter-demonstrations to these shipdits, as Reverend Spooner would call them.

Since it wasn't a funeral ( where Westboro usually stages their demonstrations) the counter protest organizer decided to introduce the Zombie theme to keep things light and not descend to the Westboro level of hate.

I don't know how anyone can follow a church that preaches hate at the funerals of fallen soldiers. It seems their mission is to inflict maximum pain.

The whole thing was a bitter disappointment.
Zombies eat brains.
The WBC is brainless.

Usually you don't want to be infected/eaten by the zombies but in this case the zombies need to be protected.

Go the Zombies! :cheer:

But I agree - don't Zombies need brains to live?! Wouldn't this result in starving Zombies? Zombie neglect? Oh dear!

I'm probably the minority opinion here, but these counter-protests need to stop. They were very effective in the beginning, but now all they do is keep Westboro in the news. When no one protests Westboro's protests, the news cameras stay away and the "church" doesn't get the attention it desperately craves.

Well done initial protestors, we know what idiots Westboro Baptist Church members are. Now let's ignore them and hope they go away for good. As long as one camera crew shows up, even if it's more for whatever the theme of the counterprotest is, they will keep doing this. Cameras go away, reporters go away, they'll move on to obscurity
(or tax fraud).

I also think it's kind of disrespectful to the mourners--do they really need two groups that bring newshounds and cameras at a funeral?!

Your concern for zombies is very touching.

You can be the founding member of SPCZ - Society for Protection of Cruelty to Zombies.

Matry, this wasnt at a funeral.

Also, at least in the Omaha area, none of the TV stations nor the newspaper give them any coverage.

If it's not a funeral, then I have no problem with mocking The Church of the Inbreds six ways from sunday. Go the Zombies!

What's the difference between the two groups? Is this a Hatfields and McCoys kind of thing???

Applies to the church people. Doesn't apply the Zombies. They were a lot more intelligent than that.
