The Westboro Baptist Church, also known as the group God Hates Fags, came to Chicago this past week. They were a no-show on the 4th, when they were supposed to protest outside Obama's Senate office. However, the event attracted two separate groups of protesters with somewhat different views on religion, making for some interesting politics.
GHF did show up outside places like the Pakistani Consulate and Obama's transition office on Michigan Avenue (also the DNC HQ) on the 8th of December, and I was able to meet and talk to Fred Phelps Jr. and his four cohorts. Reports are forthcoming, but in the meantime, there are some photos to look at. And if you're interested in GHF's schedule, you can always go to: www.godhatesfags.com.
