Westboro Church Wraps Up Protest At MSU

Three to four dozen Michigan State students cheered this morning when four members of the Westboro Baptist Church were escorted away from the MSU Union.

The church members are well known across the nation for protesting outside of soldiers' funerals with signs decrying homosexuality and blaming gays and lesbians for the destruction of America. On Monday, they brought their message to campus after an early morning stop outside a Lansing high school.

The four members of the Kansas-based church spent about a half hour on campus. Counter-protestors chanted at them.

Like their first protest outside the high school, a contingent of police were on hand to keep order. This time, they came from East Lansing, MSU, and the Michigan State Police.

Chivon Kloepfer will have more on the protest and counter-protest today on 6 News at Noon.
