Westboro Baptist Church Protest: Sabotaged By Zombies!

by at . Comments

In awesome news, a Westboro Baptist Church protest was overshadowed Friday as a horde of "zombies" arrived to counter the radical group's efforts.

Demonstrators dressed as the undead swarmed a DuPont, Wash. military base that the infamous Kansas-based church was in the process of picketing.

After hearing that Westboro planned ta protest at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, south of Seattle, 27-year-old Melissa Neace decided to mobilize her own.

"We wanted to turn something negative around, into something people could laugh at and poke fun at," Neace said. Mission accomplished ...

She called her Facebook group, Zombie'ing Westboro Baptist Church AWAY from Fort Lewis, "the easiest way to divert attention from something so hateful."

About 300 counter-protesters showed up in varying degrees of zombie garb, far outnumbering the visibly overwhelmed picketers from Westboro.

"I think that their message is very hateful, and Jesus was not a hateful person. He loved everybody," one of the counter-protesters told KIRO.

While it is unclear why Westboro Baptist Church targeted the DuPont military base for its latest effort, the group frequently pickets military funerals.

The group, whose protests are legal under the First Amendment, believes war deaths are God's punishment for America's tolerance of homosexuality.

Because they can't legally be removed from the premises, counter-protests like the DuPont zombies took part in are becoming increasingly popular.

Earlier this month, thousands of people in red shirts formed a "human wall" around a fallen soldier's funeral to block the anti-gay protesters.

IMO w.b.c. is less than a waste of space. If anyone deserves the zombie apocalypse, they do.
