Thank You Westboro Baptist Church!
Paul Raushenbush, Huffington Post
Nothing gets people more riled up, on and offline, than a small church comprised largely of one family that calls itself the Westboro Baptist Church.
I first heard of the church when I saw The Laramie Project on stage about 12 years ago. The theatre performace is a moving portrayal of Laramie's reaction to the murder of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man who was beaten, tied to a post and left to die in a field near Laramie, Wyoming.
