    I thought this was cool, but of course the state is still backwards as fuck.

    I watched both louis theroux documentaries about this particular church and they are barking so I'm happy to see people still oppose them!

    Good, it is time to tell those whackos from Westboro that they are not welcome. Probably this is a positive new beginning for the conservative state of Oklahoma.

    Yeah, I am kind of shocked to see such opposition in Oklahoma, of all places. Though, The Westboro Baptist Church can make even the most radical conservative appear 'normal'. There’s obviously the distinction between younger and older people as well – I think younger people across even the Southern states are supportive of homosexuality these days.

    This "church" received a less than Warm Welcome in McAlester, OK a few years back; when they "protested" the funeral of a soldier KIA.

    I doubt they counter-protested because they support homosexuality. The Westboro Baptist Church is strongly anti-military and Oklahoma is strongly pro-military. As a young gay guy who grew up/lives in Oklahoma, I can say that yeah, my generation is pretty supportive of homosexuality than previous ones, but in Oklahoma it's more of a 'tolerance' than support. So, I don't have to worry about guys fagbashing me, but I don't expect them to march for gay rights with me either.

    Is it better in the major cities like Tulsa?


    I don't know. One, I don't live in Tulsa, and two, I'm not obviously gay. I'm sure stereotypically feminine guys get stares in public places, but it's not like we hear about physical assaults on gays every night.
