The Westboro Baptist Church’s showdown this week with Marine father Al Snyder in Supreme Court has been widely covered, including in a first-person account on this blog. However, a Battle Rattle reader pointed out an interesting thread that I had missed: One man’s quiet protest to the Westboro message.
On Wednesday, dozens of Westboro protesters picketed outside the Supreme Court, with many of them carrying the same kind of signs used to protest outside the funeral of Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder in 2006. If you’ve been following along, you know the “Thank God For Dead Soldiers” drill.
A Getty Images photographer captured the response of one man to that message. Check out these photos:
Call me crazy, but I do think these images might bring a smile to some of our faithful readers.
