"Bikers revved their engines. Thousands of protesters waved American flags. On one side of the street, the signs read: 'Nashville: No place for hate' and 'God loves Sgt. Kevin Balduf.' On the other side, they read: 'Thank God for dead soldiers' and 'God is your enemy.' But beyond all that, inside the protective walls of a quiet church, lay a young man in Marine dress blues. ... News of Westboro Baptist Church’s plans lit up social media sites, resulting in a counter-protest of about 2,000 people Monday outside Woodmont Hills Family of God church on Franklin Pike. In less than 10 minutes, two hours before the funeral’s start, the three Westboro protesters took their leave." (06/14/11)
