more counter-protest info

” I’m Here to recruit you”

A few links from the web today

firstly a link to some of the students counter-protesting. It includes a head count, but the Facebook pages have attracted more followers. Great positive safety message from obviously sensible concerned students. I copied it I hope they’re ok with that

Westboro Baptist Church is protesting homosexuality in our school. We need to counter protest them to show that we will not be fazed by their disgraceful and hateful rhetoric. Invite everyone you know to come out and support us.

We ask that you please refrain from becoming violent or showing up under the influence of any drugs or alcohol. Feel free to bring a sign, but please keep the message positive. We’ll prove to them that love overcomes hate any day of the week.

This is Panther Country. Let’s show them who’s boss.

Also, feel free to speak your mind here, but please refrain from any violent/terrorist rhetoric.”

A relevant ‘Harvey’ Quote

“So if there is a message I have to give, it is that I’ve found one overriding thing about my personal election, it’s the fact that if a gay person can be elected, it’s a green light. And you and you and you, you have to give people hope. Thank you very much.”

Harvey Milk from his ‘ Hope Speech’
